    How about DDS or DMD from the US? - is that considered more or less qualified? - I hope it's not the latter.

    What are the benefits like as far salary, private practice costs and flexibility of the hours?

    Thanks

    american graduates are overqualified by the dental clinics and hospitals in the UAE.
    they really prefer american or a western education and will be decently considered in salary and in accomodation etc.
    they even consider the National Board Certificate issued by the ADA.
    i hope that helps.

    How would you compare dentist salaries in the UAE to the US?

    Average dentist in the US currently makes about $150-$160K, and average specialist makes around $250K+ each year (with experience).

    Any websites regarding dentistry in the UAE?

    Thanks
