i hear in a post that in some foreign countries, a dentist is an MD with a specialty in dentistry. What countries is this true???? Also, DDS/DMD ive heard has more intensive courses than MD (not saying this is true, just what i heard), so beside the beauracracy, why is the US different? What are the pros/cons to this move? DISCLAIMER: im not advocating/objecting to this move, im just curious why this is the case. Im majoring in poly sci, emphasis on healthcare industry, which explains my interest.
