What is the process that I will have to take if I want to apply to schools in Dominican Republic? I am a citizen of Dominican Republic but live in Florida and about to graduate from UF. Also how does financial aid work in Dominican Republic?

If you wanna go to the D.R the best place is UNIBE. Universidad Iberoamericana. Get on their website, and I think you can download their application, and you have to get a certificate of health, and some other things, but it should be on their website. Good Luck!

I understand that obviously calling is the best way to find out the info. But is there anymore help or insight someone can provide on this topic?

Well i wanted to know what the process would be like if I decided to study in the Dominican republic. Could i just come back to the US and take the licensure exams and begin practicing or do I have to go to back to school and if so, for how long?

Well, in a nutshell.... If you where to study over there it will be easy to get admittance, it will be cheaper than a US school, BUT you will be a FTD. None of the schools in the DR are ADA accredited. You will have to come back over here and fight for the same bone!(competing with everyone for a spot).

You will have to pass the boards just to get admittance in a 2/3 year program and pay tuition again, in USD Moolah. Soo having said that let's see..

4 years of dental school in Dominican Republic plus a year studying and passing your boards. Another year (sometimes 3 to get in), and 2 years in a IDP. So that makes 8-9 years? Sounds like a bargain!

Having a heart attack before 40? Priceless. For everything else there's Mastercard.
