Hi guys,

Is the licensure procedure for graduates from an AEGD prog similar to ones with a Prosthodontics program ?
Also, what are the states that recognize AEGD in lieu of advanced standing programs?

Yes, in regards to obtaining state licensure... an AEGD is no different than doing a GPR. Most all states that accept pros (or other ADA accredited specialty program) as a pathway to licensure will also accept both AEGD and GPR.

I think it depends on what you would be happier doing. General dentistry or a particular specialty. Only you can answer that question. As long as you can get a state license.. you can open up your own practice and do as well as you want. (dentistry is a business.. which means, if you enjoy what you do and work hard.. you will do well regardless).

Have you been accepted to both? If you have been accepted to an AEGD (or GPR).. I would take it. You'll get a great education and will be eligible for a state license. Go for it. :thumbup:
