    I am pursuing a dentistry degree in Philippines (DMD). I will be graduating next year. At the mean time I got married to a US citizen and got my green card which makes me easy to go to US and work legally. Now, I am confused what to do next? Do I have to again go and study in the US or can I just give a board exam in the US and start working?

    It's a DMD degree so can anyone please give me a correct guidance? I would really appreciate your help.

    If you want to be a dentist here in the US, youll have to go back to school. You have to pass the board exams even before you can apply anywhere.

    As far as I know there were no accredited dental schools in Philippines, most likely you will have to go back to school for another two years. There are some residences, but you will have to look for requirements for the state you plan to live in
