Overseas Application Process

If you’re from overseas, an ORE in the UK or making an inter-country UK transfer, we’ll support you throughout our process.

Eight Simple Stages

Competency Based Interview

This is normally held at the practice you’ll be based at and will involve talking about the skills you’ll need for the role. You can prepare for this by thinking about when you have delivered great results in such areas as teamwork, customer service and relationship building.

Clinical Interview

You’ll then be contacted by a Clinical Support Manager, Clinical Director or clinician from the practice. They will usually carry out an in-depth interview over the phone, asking scenario-based questions and covering such topics such as NHS regulations and clinical competencies.


If you impress at your interviews, we’ll then provide you with details of how we’ll work together to provide our patients with a world-class service. We’ll also outline the information we need to complete the compliance stage and cover such important matters as contracts, remuneration, development pathways and joining us.

Relocation Assistance

Our dedicated Relocation Manager will help you and your family relocate and settle in the UK. They will assist you from setting up a bank account to finding local schools, a place to live and a hotel close to your practice location. Discover more.


Here we’ll need the following:

  • Your GDC certificate, language certificate, IRMER and completed mydentist paperwork
  • CPR dated within last 12 months
  • DBS (formally CRB) issued in last 12 months
  • UK medical results (Hep B, Hep C, HIV & TB)
  • Medical indemnity certificate (mydentist will assist with this)
  • Proof of your eligibility to work in the UK
  • References covering your last three years of employment.

We’ll also ask you to complete your application for the National Performers List.

NHS LAT Compliance

Your NHS Local Area Team (LAT) will carry out an ID check. And you may also have to submit some more compliance information before your LAT completes your compliance assessment and a panel or Dental Advisor approves you. Please note that this could take up to 9 months.

Induction Programme

We’ll invite you to join our two-day Safe Start induction programme at the state-of-the-art mydentist academy in Manchester. This covers CPR, CQC, best practice and how to get the most from your career with mydentist. So, you’ll be confident you can deliver the highest levels of patient care in our safe and secure working environment.

Start in Practice

During your first week, you’ll have a practice orientation where you’ll meet your team and learn how they will support you. You’ll also meet and receive further support from your regional team, including your local Clinical Support Manager and Clinical Director.
