Hi Guys ,

I am a dentist from Mumbai...now wat i am wondering is...wat are we all planning to do while we write the ADC exams ie.the first two in INDIA , and later the last one in Australia.The whole procedure may take no less than about a year and half...,IF we clear all in one go !! So wat are your people`s plans for that duration...? I am a bit confused ..!! :luck: :luck:

Dear aspirants,

Very all the best for your exams and ur preps.
This mail is not to discourage you.
I am sure that if you are determined then you will definately clear these exams.

but let me tell you that before applying for anything just make everything sure and plan it .
The courses for Foreign Trained dentists in Melbourne --- you can apply only for 4 weeks course if you are off shore. DHSV themselves mentioned that it is not possible for off shore students to get visa for 16 weeks course as it does not come under student visa. 4 weeks course is for theory part and not for practical, if you find it worth the go for it.

secondly, all other courses by UWA and University of Adelaide,....
you can apply once you pass the Prelim exam i.e. part 2 examination.
you get part 2 results after almost 2-3 mnths after you appear....
till the time you become elligible and apply you miss so next year apply goes for next to next year intake........
but Preliminary examination result is valid only for 2 years ????????
so you are in catch 22 situation !!!!!!
think 100 times before you opt for anything.

Pls. do not get discouraged
I dont have any such intentions behind this mail
this is just to inform you whatever I found.

regards
Dr.Amol

Hi Everyone,

The prep course is not mandatory.
If you can gpo for it ....
nothing like it
but nothing to worry if you dont attend
as there are less but almost near the no. of students who pass with the course and without the course....
so it is not a hard and fast rule
for those who already have the visa or rather onshore people can attend it
but do they really require it
if you attend observership for 3 mnths to any aus dentist most of the things you will come to know
and for onshore dentists it is easier to contact the seniors and get the guidance
for them no course required
thats what i feel

for Off shore dentists
we have tried all possible ways
the most economic and fast way is
just appear for exam
if u pass in one shot ...great nothing like it ....
if not then you know what they are going to ask u next time
and this second attempt option will cost you 5005 aus $ and just 6 mnths !!!!!
I think calculating other options this is the fastest , surest and most economic option !!!
and in the passing students more no. of students are having 2 nd attempt
so sure success for second attempt.....

taking a short pg course or opting prep course everything will cost yu more time and lots of money
in that budget actually you will appear 2-3 more times !!
and there are students also who failed even attempting the prep course
so no guarantee even after prep course
think over this ..........

Hi friends:love:
I do agree one hundred p.c. with Dr. AMOL. The preparatory courses are not necessary and also too much expensive. In So much money, one can attempt many times in ADC clinical examinations. The best advantage is that; one will have an experience of a real exam which no preparatory course can provide.
All the Best to all of you
Kamna:)

Re: please help, questions
Yes Doctorspulse was very helpful,my whole dentistry was refreshed in that period It was an online course so I could study from my home.And they took regular tests had discussions.
And the good thing is I passed my prelims.:love:

Now I am joining www.doctorspulse.com for the theory of the clinicals

Hello everyone. As u probably know, dentists have been removed from the PR (permanent residency) list of australia. So there's no guarantee that a dentist who passes the ADC exam can live and work in australia... Does anybody know what the situation is like for dentists who pass the exam but do not have PR? Is it any use to even appear for the exam now? Any information/insight will be appreciated.
