Hey everyone,

I was wondering if Canadians applying for residencies in the states will be at a disadvantage or whether or not they will be treated the same as long as they are within North America?

Thanks for your responses!!

As long as you have graduated from an ADA program anywhere, you will have the same rights and privileges that all other residents will have.
You are one of them!

Actually, Canadian dental schools are not ADA/CODA accredited. They are CDA/CDAC (Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada) accredited. CODA in the US just accepts Canadian programs as equivalents through a reciprical agreement with the CDAC. :thumbup:

In the future CODA may also develop the same reciprical agreement with the ADC/DCNZ which accredits all dental schools in Australia and New Zealand.

"I don't foresee any significant movement of international dentists, except in Australia and New Zealand, who have programs much like those in the United States. CODA could conceivably develop reciprocal agreements in those countries."
