Hi,

From whatever knowledge I have, I will try to answer your questions...but please do cross verify all this info....

1. If you do an advanced standing program to get a DDS/DMD, then you will meet the basic requirement of having an ADA accredited basic dental degree and after passing the licensing exams and other exams like ethics, jurisprudence etc which are specific to the particular state board, then you are ready to work as a dentist in any of the 50 states in US...and also in Canada after passing the NDEB exam....

2. If you do any speciality program like prostho, perio, ( or any one of the nine speciality programs accredited by the ADA ) , then some states will consider your speciality qualification in lieu of DDS/DMD, and once you clear the other licensing exams etc then you can work in that particular state.... but later on if you wish to practice in another state where this rule doesnt apply then you would need to go back to dental school to do an advanced standing program to get a DDS/DMD....
( If you want to apply to speciality programs then you will need even a GRE score for most of the programs )

3. Regarding NBDE part-1 and part-2..... in most cases it is always benificial to have a good score on both part-1 and part-2 when you apply to any program since it will give you an edge over others who dont have a part-2 score....

Hope this helps....
