You are in tough situation with avg or below avg grades since OMFS is very competitive to match but if you really wanna do it there is always a way.Graduated a little over a year ago from dental school, now practising...
Thank you for the advice, I will definitely look into that. I am 26 years old and never thought I would want to specialize so just kind of coasted through dental school. Now after being out for a while I feel like I am sort of at a crossroad and not to sure where I want to take my career. I enjoy the surgical aspects of dentistry the most so was just wondering in my current situation what it would take to get into OMFS in the states. There are very limited spots for OMFS in Canada and highly competitive so I figured it wasn't very likely, but perhaps I would consider applying to these programs as well if I decided to and was accepted to a 1 year internship.You are in tough situation with avg or below avg grades since OMFS is very competitive to match but if you really wanna do it there is always a way.
my advice to you is do 1 year internship at a Canadian friendly program such as Montefiore, take NBME CBSE and Ace it and you should have a decent shot.
Just out of curiosity, are you in Canada practising? have you thought of any Canadian programs?
