It is indeed a promising field much better than the general masters in public health. Espcially because dental public health is a recognized speciality by the ADA. Catch is that no too many schools admit students without having an mph first.

any idea as per which are those limited universities that take in students without mph ? thanks
 
Guys I have a question. I was informed recently by a friend of mine that if one happens to acquire both the MPH and DPH qualifications then he or she becomes eligible to gain a DDS or DMD title which would eventually help him in practicing in USA. Offcourse passing both NBDE 1 AND 2 are requirements as well. Just wanted to know if this information is correct? Would one be able to practice in a clinic in USA achieving those qualifications?

For applying in IDP programs you need a foreign dental degree (and NBDE). Having MPH/DPH will not give you DDS degree, but may increase chances for getting into IDP.

I doubt any state will issue you a dental license to practice without a clinical aspect to qualifications of having a DDS/DMD degree.You cant just expect anyone to give you a license because you read something in theory/books aka (MPH/DPH) but have not showed any signs that you can do the clinical work in real life.Licensure by states are different but in unison the state boards all share the same ideology.
