Im a post graduate dentist from mexico city, in January I'll finish my post graduate Endodoncist diploma. Basically I'm a Root Canal speciallist in Mexico from Universidad Tecnologica de Mexico. I am also a permenent US resident.

What do I need to go through in order to work, not as a speciallist but as a regular dentist in the US? I need info about the possible paths to it, or even if there is only a way, which way is it?

Also during my endo trainning I've been sstudying some of the basics because Ive been told I need to take NBDE first is this correct, Id like to know dates and everything. Please help!

1. ADA has a website describing the process of the pathway to get registered.
2. Know that each state has its own requirements.
3. The basics of registration requirements are: a) National Dental Boards Parts 1 & 2; b) complete an ADA accredited postgrad program OR an advanced standing program to obtain a U.S. DDS degree; c) take a regional clinical board exam.

Hi I am a dentist from India I have a low comprehensive GPA below 2 and overall GPA above 3. I am currently doing Masters in Public Health in USA. Also I am currently working in a dental office as office coordinator. I also have CDA certificate. I can also get shadowing letter from my doctor for 150 hours and recommendation letter from him as well. I want to know is there any chances I can get admission to dental school in USA. Also I would like to know can I get letter of recommendation letter from professors of Masters program, will that help. Also what can I do to improve my GPA, and increase my chances to get into dental school.
