Overseas Registration Exam (ORE)

What is the ORE?

The ORE is an exam that overseas qualified dentists have to pass in order to register with the GDC. Registration allows dentists to practice Private dentistry in the UK. The ORE tests the clinical skills and knowledge of dentists from outside the European Economic Area whose qualifications are not eligible for full registration with the GDC here in the UK.

Candidates are expected to meet or exceed the standard of a ‘just passed’ UK BDS graduate.

A candidate is expected to be able to show competence, knowledge and familiarity in the different aspects of dentistry which are outlined in the learning outcomes in the GDC’s document ‘Preparing for Practice’ (PfP) that is available on the UK General Dental Council website. Both parts of the exam are mapped to learning outcomes and a candidate could be tested on any dentistry aspects in this document.

The exam is based on the ‘Preparing for Practice’ (PfP) and uses modern assessment methods to ensure a robust and consistent exam.

The exam has two parts:

  • Part 1 is a written exam.
  • Part 2 is a clinical exam.

Candidates are allowed up to four attempts at each Part of the ORE.

Should I apply for the ORE?

Most applicants whose primary qualification is from outside the EEA will be required to sit the ORE.
