I am a Dental Hygienist working in Vancouver, BC and am also interested in working in either Australia or New Zealand. Anyone out there have information on how to best find employment as a Dental Hygienist there and what the requirements may be?

Hi, I have recently moved from the state of Utah in the USA and am now practicing in New Zealand. If you look on the International Association on DH website, they will give you a break down on the requirements for each country. Basically, Australia requires you to sit an very extensive exam, including scope of practice that you may not have been trained in (i.e. fillings) also, there is a lot more time involved and it costs A LOT of money....and that is why I chose to come to New Zealand. No exams are required, but you must register with the Dental Council of New Zealand. There are specific requirements as well. The DCNZ and the immigration dept. have not yet corresponded with each other very well, so it take a lot of research and planning on your part to determine what type of visa/permit you will qualify for.

Mind you, this all take a lot of TIME and MONEY so PLAN WELL. Do not just come here hoping to find work. I applied w/ the NZDC in DEC. and by the time I started my first day of work it was MAY 1st. I even had a job offer before I came. It may not take that long for everyone, but just make sure you know what you need with visa and dental requirements. Also NZ have separate qualifications for the scope of Anethesia and Radiology. They do not grant it for everyone.

I would say if you plan on staying here for two years or more than it will definitely be worth it. NZ is a wonderful country and there is plenty of opportunities! I work in the city for a very nice office and I love it. ALSO once you have residency, you can transfer over to Australia w/ no problems. You may also want to see if you could work on a holiday visa for a couple of months just to try it out!!

Good Luck!!!

Another comment I wanted to add, is make sure that you understand your comparative salary to the US. I currently make HALF of what I used to in Utah, and I am also subject to about 33% percent taxes. For example I was earning $45.00 US in Utah. Here, I'm making $43.00 NZ which is about $27.00 US. 33% tax cut is $20 US. With that NZ comparative, cost of living is also more expensive. In the city (which is more expensive that suburbs) one bedroom, no roomates is about US $192/wk.

I DON'T want to make you guys dis-hearted by any means. My husband and I came over for an overseas experience and for him to study. This has been such a wonderful adventure and we love it here! I just want to make sure that you are well planned and prepared.

Trademe.co.nz is their local "craigslist". You can get a good idea of apts as well as jobs. I found my job by luck through a random website, and then I interviewed over SKYPE. Being American will give you a big advantage.

Also, if you plan to stay for awhile, the Skilled Migrant Visa is more expensive, but if accepted, will give you automatic residency.

Hi, In the USA, things are not that good for many in the field now due to the oversaturation in our field from many choosing to become R.D.H.'s. Wages are going down, vying for the position, and not enough employment to go around. I would not recommend the US, rather look into the UK. If you read further on this site the unemployment is across the board = new grads to those of us in this field for 20+yrs. If you want to be unemployed or just a day or two of work here and there then the US is for you. Being real about it....

It's very difficult to find work right now. I've been a hygienist for 16 years and have never had a problem finding a job and now it's about 20 applicants for every job opening....it's scary. Possibly you could find work in Alaska. My brother lives there and I'm contemplating moving. Does anyone out there know of some english speaking country or US start that is in need of hygienists?

In the U.S. it all depends on what state you move to. Florida for example is a nightmare, because they don't have reciprocity with any other states, but if you take the northern or southern exam, then you just have to pass the state law test. Virginia currently has a good employment rate, depending on the city, and income is high, but location will determine your cost. So make sure that you study the housing and food cost for where you want to go before you make your move. Just because they are offering $40 an hour doesn't make it a good place to work, because the living expenses may be much higher, and you will be in a higher tax bracket.

Take a look in Virginia( our unemployment is about 6% vs. California's 10+%). Pay depends on experience and location.

Hi Rita, I have a question for you. Are the students from the US that only have to do one semester at the clinic people that have already been dental hygienists in the US? I am about to start DH school here, but a year ago I was a study abroad student in Perth and would be interested in someday returning there if the job prospects were good. Is there anything else you can tell me about the students coming over from the USA?

Katie in Auckland - are you still out there somewhere? :) I'm thinking of a move to NZ and have studied the process to become licensed. One question I have that you might be able to answer having been through the process is this: are NZ hygienists trained in orthodontic procedures, and/or is this required for licensure there - I noticed that as an area on Scopes of Practice on the self - assessment form. Does one need to have experience in orthodontic procedures in order to have an unrestricted license there? If you or anyone knows - thanks in advance :D

Hi Jennifer!
I am currenlty working on the application for NZ for hygiene. Personally I wouldn't worry too much about the ortho portion just yet. I have very limited experience with ortho and that was taught when i was in hgyiene school 7 years ago.
I don't know what your thoughts are of how about getting Verification on your Hep B and C results... they have listed a few organizations of who they prefer to do lab tests but nothing in my area.
This will be a timely process.
And if Katie of Utah who is working in NZ would love your input.
Thanks Mags.

what country are u from ? even if ur a dentist you cant work as a hygienist without Australian qualification. and its 3 years study. So your only option is to dental nurse while u do ur exams.
you can contact the Dental Hygiene Association Australia DHAA anyway. or the ADA.

Job situation is good... lots of work in sydney. around $55 per hour is the usual rate. i am sure the the exams will be in a standart level. not too hard and not too easy. just study what u need and i am sure you will pass.... think of most important espects of dental hygiene and study them well. the current degree in australia of dental hygiene is bachlor in oral health including hygiene and school dental therapy in one. however, australia has lots and lots of just hygienists and what is favoured is usually what the practice needs. usually private practices just need hygienists. you will be fine. dont freak out!

I have had an email from a locum company in sydney saying that they can sponser me,well worth researching that avenue-but they do take a% of your rate,for a couple of years.also,have a good contact,books to get a nd chapters to study for written exam.radiography and ortho seem to be big.have just ordered basics of orthodontics and have a catalogue for ortho bits.see if you can spend a couple of days in an ortho dept-it has helped me.also in the uk ortho nurses can work here-i have contacted a dental hospital to ask if course notes or reading material can be sent to me.have other ideas too.plan to take written here in dec 2010.

Hi Mags, I am just now seeing your reply, apparently I used an email address for notifications that I hardly check! From Seattle I see - that is where I went to school and moved from to NM :) As far as the Hep B/C verificiation, I thought I would talk with the local lab associated with the hospital and have them help me find the right place for verification. If that fails, then I would go to the closeset university hospital system. If I end up doing this soon I'll let you know how it goes. Doesn't seem that complicated, just time consuming, lots of paperwork, though the Hep B/c and some requirements do seem a bit ambiguous . . .

Hi Jennifer!
No worries!! Yes it is all a bit time consuming and unfort have not done much at the moment as it has been a busy month. I contacted the NZ dental board about the Hep B/C verification and they seem pretty flexible. I went to my local phyicians office and got all the papers which I hope will be good enough. I woman who wrote me was helpful and nice about it.
Did you go to hygiene at Shoreline or Lake Washington Tech?
I am born and raised here but got my training in Ohio. Funny how things work out and where you end up.
Good luck and hope hygiene is keeping you busy. -Maggie :)
