SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi guys.. i know that the regular path to practice dentistry in USA for international dentists are.. giving NBDE part 1 and Part 2 go for 2 to 3 yr dental school program and later give license exam and u will be able to practice dentistry in different states depending on ur regional exam . Well as you that was not the case before. Earlier there were chances where... International dentist would just give the exam for license and practice without going to any schools for 2 yrs in USA. The rules are been changing and now its been removed and we r suppose to compulsary take 2 to 3 yrs dental school .. and later give license. I just have a question that is there any state still open where we can directly give the license exam and practice? i heard there is still 1 or 2 state open for such thing. Please reply for it if u have heard about any such information. It will be useful for all of us.
