BDS degree from India is recognized in most of the countries including Singapore, USA, UK, Europe, Australia, Newzealand etc. However, in almost all countries you need to qualify the exam conducted by the medical council.

There is great scope for Dentists in Australia and New Zealand but you need to register with Australian Dental council or NZ dental council to practice it or pursue any program in Dental in these countries. Foreign dental school graduates who wish to practice in the United States must be approved by the state board of dentistry or examiners for licensure in the state in which they wish to practice.

You can do Post graduation degree in Dental science from Russia which is affordable and you no need to clear any Registration examination.

There is acute shortage of Dentists in USA right now.

As per ADA, there are 55 dentists per one lakh population currently which is expected to come down to 50 by 2035 as more dentists are retiring than entering the profession over the next 25 years with the aging population in USA.

Annual seats in DDS: 4900

The foremost question when one graduates with their BDS degree is what next to do??

The various options available to you are, if you are planning for foreign shores are:

2) Dentistry in CANADA

1) Dentistry in USA:
USA still and will remain the best country for foreign dental graduates. With India being the center of attraction in US economy, they need India as business partner more than ever before.
The singlemost point which comes to our mind when we plan to go to USA is whether my BDS is a recognized degree or not. As per American Dental Association (ADA), BDS degree in India is classified as a Dental Degree from a regionally accredited university. That means, all people who have BDS degree can take admission in Advanced Standing Program for International Dental Graduates leading to DDS/DMD degree. So, to state that your BDS is not recognized or your BDS has gone waste is not true. They do consider you dentists but from a regionally accredited program. This classification applies even to all European graduates also.

2) Dentistry in Canada:
Now you can avail of beneficial immigration rules and recent Canadian Dental Board Update thereby allowing FOREIGN DENTAL GRADUATES to Practice in Canada without DDS. Just an amazing offer of a lifetime. Register at our website with complete contact details and we'll surely guide you in your dreams of making it big in Canada.


Advanced Standing Program for International Dentists leading to DDS/DMD:

1) You need your BDS or MDS degree

2) Please have a Visa or Mastercard International Credit Card by this stage, otherwise you are just delaying your long application process by going to banks and wasting your time unnecessarily. Many universities and ADA accepts only Credit card. So, have one as soon as possible.

3) At this stage, you need to get your Transcript Evaluation done. The cost of evaluation is either USD 150 depending upon your current status and aggregate in four years of dentistry program in India.

4) You need to take your National Dental Board Examination (NBDE) Part 1 examination. This examination is conducted throughout the year across various centers in USA/Canada and costs $345. This exam in fully computerized and contains 400 MCQ's with no negative marking. We will conduct Computerized Mock Test for the exam whenever you are ready.
For admissions, one needs greater than 85 percentile score. The more the score, the better it is.

5) Obtaining US Visa is the biggest hurdle in your American dreams. Initially you will go on a Visitors Visa (B1/B2) visa to USA. The cost of this visa is Rs 9000 at this moment.

6) Other thing you need to take is TOEFL iBT (costing US $170). Remember, TOEFL scores are valid for 2 years time while NBDE scores have 5 years validity. One should score 100 and above in TOEFL iBt as this would make you eligibile for all universities.

7) Now if you have scored well in Part 1 and TOEFL iBT, you are ready for applications to various universities. The admissions are dependent upon a number of variables:

a) NBDE Part 1 score
b) TOEFL iBT score
c) GPA (Grade Point Average)
d) 3 Letters of Recommendation
e) A solid and professional Career Statement or Statement of Purpose
f) Original Transcripts signed by Dean/Principal of your college/university
g) Application submission
h) Personal Interviews
i) Resume
J) Paper/Poster presentation

8) Typically, yearly expenses are in the range of US $ 90,000 to 100,000 dollar. Then, if you get admitted to DDS/DMD program, you will need a co-signer (can be a relative or a friend) who is either a US citizen or Green card holder for your Student loan. Loans are very easy and long term like 15-20 years. The loan amount even covers your living expenses and if you have a spouse and children, they cover even that. So, a two year program will cost in INR 80 lacs to 95 lacs. The expenses covered includes all Tuition fees; Health insurance; Dental instruments/material expenses; laptop and its software charges; all lodging and boarding expenses including meals. No payments are required while you are in school. There is no prepayment penalty. Repayment begins 6-9 months after you leave school, or when you get a job. You can have multiple co-signer's also for a loan.

9) DENTISTS and SPECIALIST DOCTORS remain the most lucrative and best salaried profession.

10) On an average, a DDS graduate starting salary range from $ 120,000 to $ 1,40,000. As per ADA figures, annual average salary of a dentist across USA in 2006 was in excess on $300,000.

11) In 2005, 5 % Americans had an annual salary in excess of one lakh dollar or more. So, when you start your career in USA as a dentist, you straightaway belong to upper 5 % income group bracket in USA. That is a big reward you get for all pains and hardships associated with being a dentist.

12) Above all, US has a stable work permit in form of H1B followed by Green Card, and then US citizenship.

13) And if you want to go for non-clinical fields like MPH, MHA, etc , go to MPH/MHA in USA Page
