Welcome to the forum axtrada83 and yes, you'll need to have your qualifications approved for working in Australia and that applies to any person for trades or any skills.

For dentistry, it'll be the Australian Dental Council, their web site AUSTRALIAN DENTAL COUNCIL

For the immigration application, have a look starting at Workers - Visas & Immigration , click on professionals and other skilled workers and you'll see a link for SOL which has all the skills, points and assessment references on it.

Click on Visa options and then 'outside Australia' and you'll have various visas, the 175/176 likely to be applicable for you and you can read full requirements under eligibility.

But first thing you'll need to do is apply to the ADC re qualification assessment.
If you are successful, then you should have no problem getting a visa as dentists are on the Critical Skills List [CSL], but have a read of sticky thread #4 in our visas & immigration section for there's information on processing priorities that have been introduced.

The Australian Government has had a report done recently on health/medical/dental needs and there is a possibility of dental coverage for Australians being made similar to what we have with medical and our medicare system and that could raise the demand for additional dentists - perhaps an overseas recruitment drive.

But if you get qualifications approved, you may want to also consider getting a state nomination - see under the 176 visa - as that'll lead to slightly quicker application processing.

I'll move this to the Visas & Immigration section.
