    As far as I know, If you want to go to 4 years dental school, I am pretty sure you will have to take the DAT. Without any exams and just the diploma, I doubt if any schools would accept.

    I know some schools require the undergraduate courses have to be taken here in USA.For me does not make sense go through this process again (undergraduation). If you find out somethng different, please let me know.
    good luck

    No you dont have to do undergraduation. You just have to have all the prerequisites that are required for 4 year dental school. I guess you only have to take chemistry classes ( organic and inorganic). talk to a student advisor in school and they will guide you. My friend just took 2 chemistry classes .

    hello,
    Could you tell me in which state, because at least in Texas I know that you have to go through everything.
