Dr Scott Waghorn shares what it's like and what it takes to be a dentist in New Zealand.

Dentistry in NZ

The job market for dentists in New Zealand was getting more competitive pre-covid.

Recently, New Zealand has faced a lack of experienced Dentists, countering this is the fact that only a limited number of people are accepted into our world leading dental school each year.

Dentists with up to three years’ experience usually earn $65K-$85K NZD per year

Dentists with more than three years' experience usually earn $85K-$186K NZD per year.
Job Opportunities
Chances of getting a job as a dentist are average for graduates, but good for those with experience.

Why New Zealand?

Famous work/life balance

People in New Zealand enjoy a great lifestyle.

Working hard and getting ahead is important to us. We’re a well-developed, well connected country with all sorts of opportunities to advance your career. But New Zealanders also believe life is for living.

Workmates and employers alike respect the fact that you have a life outside the office, to pursue your own interests or simply to share in quality time with your family. Why wouldn’t they - when they’ll be out there doing the same, taking advantage of all the opportunities New Zealand offers for relaxation, recreation and exploration.

It’s called work/life balance, and we reckon we’ve got the mix just about spot on.

Work/Life Balance


Overall Mindset

Great for families

One of the most important things we can offer families is the luxury of feeling safe.

Of course we have crime, but we’re also a remarkably tolerant and easy-going society. In fact, the 2019 Global Peace Index which compares around 160 countries for the risk of personal violence rated us the world’s second safest country, after Iceland. South Africa came in 127th.

The quality of New Zealand’s education is another attraction.

We ranked third just behind Finland and Switzerland in The Economist’s 2018 Worldwide Educating for the Future Index of 50 major countries.

At the other end of the scale, all eight New Zealand Universities are in the top 500 of the 2019 QS World University Rankings. All of them offer at least one subject ranked in the world’s top 100.

Healthcare and public services are also top notch.

“I saw women walking with babies all on their own … that’s something I always wanted to do”
Aldine Vorbeck on safety and community

Clean & beautiful

Every country has a certain amount of natural beauty. New Zealand just happens to have loads of it.

New Zealanders share a strong sense of guardianship (kaitiaki-tanga) for our environment. For example, we maintain robust controls over land development, fishing, water quality and conservation. We’ve dedicated over 30% of our land area to national parks and other protected areas.

So, what can you expect?
Well, if you’ve seen The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Narnia Chronicles or The Piano, you’ll have an idea: soaring mountainscapes, mysterious lakes and rivers, dramatic volcanic plateaus, vast open plains, braided rivers, thermal wonderlands, fiords, native forests, glaciers, miles of farmland and even more miles of glorious coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches…. all that sort of thing.

Why work with us?

Why are we your best bet?

Although we work successfully with a range of clients, your pathway as a Dental Professional is secured.

A New Zealand job offer in essential health services is a crucial requirement for a visa application right now; but it is very difficult to get a job offer in NZ without a work or resident visa.
