    Hello guys,

    I'm a dental student from Asia, and I'm strongly considering practicing dentistry in the US.

    I'm wondering that it will make big difference in practicing if I will do an internship and residency directly without finishing 2 years of advanced standing programs.

    It depends in which state you plan to practice in. Some people want to do DDS/DMD to be free in their choices

    Thank you for your answer.

    I would like to practice in Washington state, and it does not require DDS or DMD to be licensed if I will have completed a residency program.

    I really don't want to spend additional 2 years because of my age, but I'm worried about how patients are thinking about a foreign educated dentist.

    No one wants it, even without age problem, because of the high cost. I never even tried applying into residency, because it seemed to have higher competition, then 2 year program. I do not have enough experience to give you a proper advise
