Section 78 of the Dental Act 2018 imposed the need for every new registrant, registered under this Act to undergo compulsory service. Section 79 (1) stated that:

“A dental surgeon who commences to serve in a post in pursuance of a written notice issued under section 78, shall continue to serve in that post or in such other subsequent post as may be determined by the Director –General for a continuous total period to be prescribed.”

In relation to that, the Dental Regulations 2021 prescribed under Section 68 that the continuous total period of compulsory service of a dental surgeon under subsection 79 (1) of the Dental Act 2018 shall be not less than twelve months.

Failure to comply with such written notice on compulsory service will lead to the removal of the dental surgeon’s name from the Dental Register.

Please note that compulsory service period starts on the first day of reporting at the respective employer.



Please refer to Public Services Commission of Malaysia Portal for conditions of appointment and SPM Bahasa Melayu requirement to apply as Dental Officer UG41 in the Ministry of Health Malaysia.
