You're going to really struggle to get a half decent position with your lack of clinical experience/post grad qualifications etc. My advice would be to get more experience in pvt practice in the UK, complete exams such as MFDS and get a post grad degree - preferably a specialism and you will be in a better position. A minimum of 5 years experience is needed but more desirable will be 10 years.
Remember you will never be a citizen of Dubai so keep this in mind when planning long term.

IS it a good reason for being many times in a place to like to move to? I have been many times to Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Sydney, .... should I live in all these places?
what is in particular you liked in Dubai and you could not find anywhere els?
From my long travel around the world, the only thing I can think of, which is in Dubai , is sun, large hotels and prostitutions altogether at one place in Dubai.
You need to check your numbers. More British in Oman than any other Middle East country? I think not!

If you consider the British Armed forces in The Sultan of Oman's Armed Forces you will change your mind.

this is a lovely thread - welcome to the bored Alex.

Why not contact some of the practices out here, bit of a google search will reel them all off. I've been treated by two dentists out here one was indian, one was scandanavian and to be honest all my dentists in the Uk have been indian as well so I do't see the issue, they all charge a small fortune ( apart from mentalists). If you like holidaying here why not come for a month and visit the clinics face to face, do a bit of networking, get the feedback from the people already out here of qualifications and experience, you might get a better responce than cold calling.

I'd do a bit of research into buying a house out here (as in you'd be mad- but some people do it) you might be better investing elsewhere though.

Personally I say good on you- so you don't want to go to Saudi- who does to be honest.

Best of luck- and for my nice reply can you do me a free root canal that I've been puttig off?

It's quite the average welcome to BE thread. But lets make it interesting..how long will he stay a poster? My bets are they will cease at the end of this thread and people will ask the question 'why is there so few new comers to make fun off?'

maybe if we were a bit nicer he'd stay around and maybe a few other people- I don't know how many people are prepared to play some initiation game to be accepted on a site- all you need to ask is are you hot and single- if yes lets all help them- if not- meh

I reckon people who have been active on internet forums in the past understand the concept of trolling. It seems to be perceived by noobs as hate ridden and offensive..I find it quite funny, depending on troll skill. A good troll is a rare breed..but I reckon there's a couple on here at least who I much enjoy.
