Application for Dental Specialist Accreditation


Dental specialist accreditation by the DSAB is currently only applicable to dentists who:

  • are registered with the Singapore Dental Council (SDC),
  • have a valid practising certificate in force, and
  • fulfil the conditions set out by the DSAB.


Dental specialist accreditation assessments are held twice a year, in March and September.  Application deadlines will be set about six weeks before the scheduled exit interviews, i.e. around February and August respectively.


The accreditation assessment announcements will be posted on the Dental Specialists Accreditation Board (DSAB) and College of Dental Surgeons, Singapore (CDSS) websites. 


It is the onus of the applicants to ensure that they have requested and received recognition and certification of their qualifications from the DSAB, proof of which is compulsory and required to accompany their application for accreditation.


Applicants who have not already registered their qualifications with the SDC are recommended to do so.  For information on registration of displayable qualifications, please click here.


Prospective candidates are to submit the application form with copies of relevant qualifications and supporting documents to the DSAB Secretariat by the application deadline, for verification of registration status.


Certified true copies (by issuing institution) of qualifications and supporting documents are required to be submitted.  Sight verification of qualifications and supporting documents may be done at SDC office (please make an appointment and bring original documents).


Verified applications will be forwarded to the CDSS Secretariat, who will liaise with applicants for the submission of application materials (as stipulated in criteria) and payment of fees (as indicated in announcement).  Appointments for the submission of application materials will be in the fortnight after the application deadline.


Applicants whose qualifications and application materials meet the eligibility criteria will be invited to attend the exit interview.


Prospective applicants should contact the DSAB Secretariat at enquiries@dentalcouncil.gov.sg for clarification of instructions.
