Working in dentistry as an Oleh in Israel presents a distinctive blend of opportunities and challenges. Recognizing the wealth of experience and expertise that dental professionals from around the world bring, Israel has streamlined processes to facilitate their integration into the licensing system. Many dentists making Aliyah will be exempt from licensing exams, however, specific criteria, including a minimum of five years’ practice in their home country, must be met to qualify for this exemption.

Obtaining specialty recognition at the moment is complicated, though Nefesh B’Nefesh continues to work tirelessly to improve this situation. Despite current challenges in specialty recognition, we encourage applicants to embark on this fulfilling journey, confident that each step brings you closer to contributing your expertise. Please read through the specific requirements, necessary documents, and additional insights that will help pave the way for you and future dentists in Israel.
