    Hello, Good day to everyone reading this thread. I finished my B.D.S degree and planning got doing DDS. Right at my first step, how do I proceed being an international student seeking admission.? I need part 1 flash cards and books for my preparation. If anyone interested to sell please do inform down in comments. Any information regarding the formalities for admission or preparation would really help in a big way towards shaping my career.
    THANKS in advance. Take care friends.

    First go to ada website get a dental pin
    after this there i a form in website which has a list of subjects , u need to get your dean to sign the form n then u need to send it ti JCNDE- this is an eligibility form once they receive it they will send you a mail stating that u r eligible for part 1 NBDE exam
    then you pay for ur exam and same time apply for US visa
    once you have that give the exam n clear it
    after this u need to send another eligibility form for part 2 similar to the one u would have sent for part 1
    once you get eligibility mail pay for part 2 take the exam n pass it
    then once you finish this get your credential evaluated by ECE ( You can do that simultaneously as well
    when you are in USA try to shadow a few dentist there so that you can get letter of recommendations from them on a later date
    after this take your TOEFL exam get atleast 100 on it
    Then when cycle starts in march you apply to colleges via CAAPID
    for books n decks u can order formUSA or try E bay in your country they are usually available.

    From the above just want to correct that since you are no longer a student you need evaluation first. Ada will decide if you are eligible to take board exams.
    Frankly first thing you need to do is determine how you are going to pay for your education. Average COA now is about 250K. Are you eligible for federal student loans or able to get other loans?
    Secondly, you need to understand that this process may take awhile, because competition among Indian dentists is even higher. Dental schools create diverse groups in their IDPs and can't admit only Indians even if they have the best stats
    Third, you need to know if you are even able to get visitor visa. It may not be easy to get one if you are a single person with no ties to your home country
    So, there is a lot to consider before jumping into evaluations and exams
