Re: Non-EU, want to be a dentist in Switzerland

You would need to have your qualifications recognised. This is the organisation to contact.

You are a doctor, dentist, veterinarian, pharmacist or chiropractor and would like to work in Switzerland?

Contact:

I suspect you would need to get a Masters degree in India too. Medicine as a study subject is not open to foreign nationals here in Switzerland so you couldn't do your degree here.

More importantly however, is that you would need to speak a Swiss language to a high level of proficiency - German, French or Italian depending on which part of the country you plan to move to. English isn't a language of Switzerland, although having it is a bonus. But if you can't communicate with your patients you aren't going to have any, simple as that.
