    hi there everyone. i am a sophomore in college right now, and i am really interested in going to dental school somewhere in europe! what requirements do i need to fulfill? i know some dental schools require you to pass their language exam..what are the schools that dont require that? also how many years is it to complete dentistry in those schools? its a pretty broad topic/question, but any input will really help. thank you!

      Leeds in Yorkshire, England has two Unis and is the party central of students and non students alike, they have a dental institute where from day one you will be seeing and treating patients, normaly people who cant get a NHS dentist as there is a shortage and about 12 million people including me dont have one, or people who cant afford to go private, even the NHS charges £18 (about $30 for a check up), even though you pay National insurance TAX so you can get free health care, but thats a different story!

          You have to probably go through the grind like the rest of us. International program to get DDS and then a residency. Or some schools offer residency positions to internationally trained dentists (I did not say anything about citizenship) and you could explore that(somewhat limited) option.
