Hello, I am looking at my options for licensure in the USA. I want to ask whether an Advanced Standing DDS would be more beneficial or AEGD? I understand the states where we can work after AEGD are very few and AEGD is more financially viable. However, I'd like your opinions on this. Which one is better in the long run? What are the differences in the patient exposure and clinical work in both of them?

Thank you

Everyone wants to go to the cheap program. Do you have stats to compete?
All programs are different. Programs for FTDs are created to make money for schools, they provide minimum training to make sure majority passes licensure exams. No one cares, if you get good clinical exposure or good clinical skills
There is truly no right choice here. Of course degree gives you the most flexibility and pride of graduating from the US school
