Frequently asked questions about this subject

  • Why is there a shortage of dentists in the Netherlands?

    Each year, a limited number of students are admitted to pursue a course of study in dentistry. More than a third of Dutch dentists are over the age of 50, and the rapidly aging workforce has a strong effect on the market. Another factor is the high percentage of female dentists, who more often work part-time because of family obligations. All of this leads to a large number of job openings in the Dutch job market.
