Re: Planning on moving to swtizerland to work as a Dentist, Need tips and Advice

After you learn German and, if you can master using Google, you would be able to answer your own questions. But here goes:

"How good is it to work as a dentists in Switzerland ?"

The patients are polite, pay on time and have large mouths, so it's easy to work on them.

"What is the average salary and tax% that has to be paid ?"

See the article at this link: "Zahnarzt: bestbezahlter Beruf in der Schweiz"
http://www.zwp-online.info/ch/zwpnew...uf-der-schweiz

Tax depends on where you live and how much you earn.

"Which parts of Switzerland would be recommended to move too?"

Anywhere you can find a job and, since you are studying German, where German is spoken.

"Are there any expenses that has to be paid like you have to in England ? (GDC and medical protection)"

Does it really matter? Dentists are the highest paid professionals in Switzerland.

Re: Planning on moving to swtizerland to work as a Dentist, Need tips and Advice

One of the leading dental clinic chains in Switzerland is Swiss Smile. It was started by two Iranian-origin sisters and is now owned by the EQT private equity company of Sweden. Looks like a perfect fit:

Private dentists in the UK don't make a bad living either!

At least given the prices I paid for work for me and my kids in Surrey and London


Any reason why you're wanting to move to Switzerland for work? Given you are registered in the UK and then assuming you must already speak English.

We are a family of dentists, and im the youngest.
Parents tell me too go somewhere else.
i have been in the Uk since 2000 and im kind of tired of england.
There is just so much going on here such as

- Paper work / CQC
- complain system , im not sure what the company is but im sure you are aware of the group of dentists who retired to law for a NO WIN NO FEE policy to patients.

Starting to feel like a sheep amongst a group of wolves

Thank you
i took a look at the website

Yeah I'm from the UK, it's different than it used to be. Have you spent a while over here? I mean you think the paperwork/complaining people are less? I don't know it's possible, but I don't know about that. I don't see that in general.

I know the dentists in France seem to have less paperwork, I mean even as a patient you fill out so little, the pay is no doubt less though.

Paperwork and stupid people are everywhere, maybe you need to time to explore where you WANT to be.

Re: Planning on moving to swtizerland to work as a Dentist, Need tips and Advice

I am a newly registered dentist,
only working on private patients until my performer number arrives.
i will explore the dental field in England a bit longer as my thoughts might change while i gain 2 year clinical experience and improve my German

but i am sure you are aware that the NHS contracts are changing in 2018 incase you happen to work for the NHS.

Can you stay private? I don't know how it works, if that is an option. I'm a photographer so the type of dentistry I handle is all via photoshop But have been to dentists myself and for my kids and many countries AND lived all over.

Figure out more what you like about a place vs just thinking you can run away from the downsides of your work. If you had replied you love to ski and the countryside or had a swiss girl/boyfriend or some other reason I'd be less pushing you to really think harder about it.

Lots of options, just need to find the one that fits and suck up the paperwork and other BS that is part of the job and try to enjoy what you can and invest the pennies well.

All dentists are private in Switzerland. You will have to work hard to establish a good name here too.... but you'll have to start all over again with this.

You can establish a name quickly if you're willing to charge a fair price.
All the dentists here are charging way to much, meaning a lot of working to middle class people either
  • don't go to dentist unless it's an emergency
  • go abroad
If you are a 'cheap' dentist, you'll still make a very good living here.

As a 'cheap' dentist, you simply can't survive unless you work like a robot until you drop. Running expenses are very high, and prices for equipment and materials are way higher than abroad.

I pay $7.85 for one package of a certain dental material in the USA. Exactly the same product costs CHF 241.- in Switzerland. Even dental products made in Switzerland often cost a fraction abroad. But for taking advantage of the price difference while establishing a practice you'd have to import practically everything, and that may mean a huge lot of work and hassle. I just bring quantities that are small enough to get waved through at the Swiss airport customs desks.

By the way, statistics show that the "middle class" remarks above refer to a small minority, nothing to make a living out of.

Re: Planning on moving to swtizerland to work as a Dentist, Need tips and Advice

Qualifications would need to be recognised first.

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

Contact:
Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH)
MEBEKO
CH-3003 Bern
T +41 31 322 94 83
www.bag.admin.ch
MEBEKO-Ausbildung@bag.admin.ch"

Main problem might be the lack of a Swiss language though. How do you expect to speak to your clients without German, French or Italian? Is there a requirement to speak a Swiss language as part of the recognition of dental foreign qualifications to practice? There is for doctors and nurses I know.

Re: I love Switzerland ( planning to find work as a Dentist - tips appreciated )

Hey Everybody!!

I'm a dentist/Orthodontist for 6 years in Hungary.Im considering moving to Switzerland to Work and live as a dentist here.I'm an orthodontist I did many courses all over the world.
I'm also a member of the European orthodontic society.

I really don't know where to begin.. Switzerland seems a really closed dental community for me..I was asking for some help recently from An old Swiss collage but unfortunately he some kind of rejected me and he told me it's almost impossible to get a job as a dentist here in Switzerland because there are too many.
Can you please give me some information about it?is it really so hard to get a job here? If you are a dentist dental assistant or a dental hygienist please give me some hope))
Thanks a lot for all your help!
