Hi,

I am wondering whether there is a chance for a foreign trained dentist to do residency directly instead of doing DDS or DMD? If so which programs we can do and in which university?

Please reply!

Hi,

I know that in prosthodontics, there are many foreign trained dentists who have their DDS/BDS from their own schools. While I was at Marquette in 1997, I was the only US grad in my class out of three. DP
