http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=313026&highlight=dentistry+dubaiDoes anyone what it's like for U.S. trained dentist in Dubai? what are their average salaries there as a general dentist? is there a good market/niche there for American dentists?
I speak and understand little Arabic, but I don't think it will take me long time to get into it.Do you speak Arabic cold ? Obviously that is considered a huge plus, and is probably your best advantage as an American trained dentist. Obviously having graduated from a US accredited school makes you much more "marketable" and will give you a edge over the majority of other job applicants.
My goal is to pay off my loans back in the US first, then consider practicing there if the benefits are close to what average dentist makes in the US.Money is not as good as it is in the US cold front..when ur done paying off your DDS laon then only should u consider moving to dubai..dont even think before that! One of teh reasons I didnt go for masters at BU dubai was the fact that the amoutn ill be earning after I graduted would not have been enough to pay my loan back in dollars......so keep that in mind.
