You are finally BIG registered and ready to start working as a dentist in the Netherlands. Congratulations and welcome to the Royal Dutch Dental Association.

The KNMT brings together over 10,000 members with a tremendous pool of knowledge, quality, experience, and ambition. For over a century it has been committed to dentists, dental surgeons, orthodontists and their patients. Dentists and dental specialists can count on the KNMT from the moment they join the profession to after they retire. So join us!

In recent years, it has become easier to work in another country. Especially if you want to move within Europe. Nevertheless, it takes a lot of effort to gather all the required information to actually begin working as a dentist in the Netherlands. As the largest association in the Netherlands for oral care professionals, the KNMT would like to offer a helping hand.

We receive a lot of questions from abroad. Do you have a question? Please check the FAQ below first.
