I can say with experience this, I interviewed at Rochester. I am an American with part one past. I am also a FTD. But, after getting rejected and I did interview well, I learned this about AEGDs. For the most part ,this applies to the popular ones and I know there are less popular ones that this opinion does not apply to. So that being said, Where did you get an interview to?

Here is my point. It is better if you have Real dental experience and recent as well, the duration of down time from when you graduated dental school, left your country as a practicing dentist, or graduated from any type of American program like MS , Research, or Advanced Cert. programs like NYU has or even a 1 yr. gpr, whichever, you get my point, this will be the deciding factor when you compete for a spot. If you are like me and have been trying for two years to get into a program and have only dental assisted, then rightfully they will take those who have the experience over you. I don't blame them. I understand, and I support the rational, they don't want to have to teach anyone dentistry over they want you to work.

So my advise, the questions they ask are generic, just answer them directly and be honest. But if you are a candidate that has recently work as a dentist or in program with any part of your boards past, then stress this fact to them during the interview. You will see that you have at least put yourself above those like me who have not been practicing regardless of those who just only past their boards.

I wish you the best of luck and pray that you find a program that accepts you.
