I believe the majority of candidates are originally from HK with Chinese background, like myself. Other reasons may be family reunion, people taking postgrad in HK, lifestyle factors, eligibility to work overseas (if you travelled overseas just to study and need to go back to HK), self challenge etc.
hi smileline,1. Yes, I passed all parts of the examination (parts I,II,III) on one attempt some years ago. I did not end up wanting to stay in HK as there were no jobs. I did this for self challenge only.
2. The passing rate is not that high. You can check that on the their website. The year I did it, they had a total of five passing candidates.
3. You must already be a dentist as you have to show your certificate of good standing. For many countries, (eg. Australia/Hong Kong), once you graduate from your undergraduate degree, you are automatically registrable as a dentist (at least in that country) without further examination anyway.
Hope this answers your questions.
hDamn, all the internet has to offered about the HK licensing exam is mainly from here. Guess most people are too busy with their lives. I'm going to start preparing for it, probably sit for the exam next year. I've been out of school for 7 years now, will start with looking at my dental decks for NBDE part 1 and 2.

I am a BDS graduate from HKU. I've got a couple of friends from outside HK who took and passed the HK licensing exam. Feel free to let me know if I can offer any information or help.
To answer your second question, once you get a practicing license in HK, hunting for a job isn't difficult. It would definitely be better if you know some Cantonese, but it's out of problem for a decent job as there are many dentists in Hong Kong who only cater to high-end English speaking patients.
