Hi everyone!
I was just wondering if anyone had any information on where about I can practice Dentistry with a UK degree (BDS). I am very keen to work in Canada (considering I was originally born there, have citizenship and used to live there for a little while) but I am not too sure the exact process on how I would get there. I have been given many different responses. Some people say that you will have a good chance being let in to practice with a UK degree but I don't know.
I would even consider the US as well. If anyone has any general or personal information that they could share with me it would be greatly appreciated!
Please send any information on where I can practice with my degree and the process I need to take:)
MANY THANKS :)
I hope to hear from someone soon!!

I would start pushing your dental school to start applying for US/Canadian accreditation with CODA: http://www.ada.org/prof/resources/pubs/adanews/adanewsarticle.asp?articleid=2524 If they get this.. you can work anywhere in the US or Canada you want.

Until they obtain this accreditation... you will either have to 1) redo your last two years of dental school in a US or Canadian dental school and graduate with a "local accredited degree". or.. 2) if you complete a specialty program or 2 years of general dental residency (GPR or AEGD) you can then obtain a license in up to 16-20 US states. (but not all of them)

These are your only real options for north america at the moment.

Good luck
