As an international everything is going to be more expensive for you bc you don't have an in-state option. You're looking at least 30,000+ per year. Id buy the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools, it has all the financial info for every school in it. Off the top of my head I believe University of Colorado has decent tuition for non-residents.

Try predents.com and go to the Rankings section on the home page where you can sort the schools by Tuition 4 Year Out of State. You'll get them sorted by most to least expensive and have a pretty good idea of where the good values are.
