Knesset finalizes exam exemption for immigrant dentists

Experienced dentists immigrating to Israel will no longer have to take an exam to treat patients, after the Knesset passed a law to that effect in a final vote Monday, with 96 in favor and none opposed.

The bill exempts dentists with five or more years of experience from taking the test, and it must go into effect within 30 days.

Immigration and Absorption Minister Ze’ev Elkin thanked the MKs from across the political spectrum “who did not surrender to the snow” to vote in favor of the law, for which he has fought to pass in recent months.
