Louis Ng on Dental Registration (Amendment) Bill
02 Aug 2021 05:37pm
Singapore faces an ongoing supply crunch of talent in dental care. With that in mind, MP Louis Ng raised two questions in Parliament on Monday (Aug 2). He asked if foreign-trained dentistry graduates can be given more attempts to pass the qualifying exam for conditional registration here, as well as more time between attempts - especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic. He also asked what alternative careers there are within the industry for local graduates with foreign dentistry degrees who fail the exam.
