A new video explains online renewal of registration which is now open for dental practitioners.
Dental practitioners who are due to renew their general, specialist or non-practising registration with the Dental Board of Australia (the Board) by 30 November can apply online now.
A video explaining how to renew registration online is available on the practitioner services page of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) website.
The four-minute video explains how to access online renewal, what you must declare about your previous 12 months’ practice, how to pay the registration fee and what happens next.
Last year 98.4 per cent of all health practitioner registration renewals due by 30 November (12 professions) were submitted online, an increase of 0.8 per cent.
Dental practitioners are reminded to carefully read the Board’s registration standards which specify the profession’s standards of practice before making the required declarations in their application for renewal of registration.
Individuals who hold an endorsement for conscious sedation must complete an approved refresher course before applying for renewal of registration and the endorsement. The national register of practitioners confirms if a dental practitioner’s registration includes an endorsement.
Dentists or dental specialists who use conscious sedation in their practice must have endorsed registration.
