How is doing a 3 year IDP better then taking a 4 yr regular DDS course?
Isn't the cost less and then one can stay in their state( i mean no relocation)

Please give your views on this.

Thanks

Hey if you are young, single and free :D and have a GC and hence eligible for in-sate tuition and you have plenty time at hand, 4 years course is superb. Definitely you relearn whole of dentistry properly in a US school. :cool:

Otherwise out of state tution is almost as much as programs offering IDP.

Choice is yours.
Good Luck. :thumbup:

I think that most regular 4 year programs require that your
basic science prerequisites be taken at an US/Canadian
4 year university, so it will probably take an additional
2 years to repeat these courses for a total of 6 years.
There may be a few exceptions to this rule.
