    Hi all,
    i know i might a sound a bit boring but here goes....
    I am an international dentist from India.
    I am currently in NJ and thinking about moving to Dallas,TX.
    so,please can anybody let me know the opportunities for foreign trained dentists in Dallas ie is there an IDP program in Dallas ,If not what else can we study to get licensure in Dallas.
    I read somewhere that doing a masters program in a clinical specialty will allow us to practice,is it true for Dallas,TX?

    Thanks for taking the time to look into this post

    do you already have the license to practice in USA? I dont think so. in that case, you will need to study DDS first to get the license. Studying MS will not qualift to get the license. Also it will be too challenging the get the admission in MS without DDS degree.

    BTW - there is no IDP school in Dallas. You have to go out of the Dallas for IDP.

    hi dagu,
    thank u for the response
    even i thought of the same thing,they are asking for gre score for MS program,so I thought better to study for part-1 and get into a college here in nj or ny itself..............like they say " a known Devil is better than an unknown Angel":) :)
    Thanks again and Regards
