Hi everyone, I am a foreign trained dentist ( FTD) currently practicing. I am looking at various career options in the US for FTDs.
I am unable to figure out what are the career opportunities and prospects like after doing a Masters program without a DDS/DMD for FTDs
Are there any restrictions with regards to where one can practice, or is it restricted to only few states? I came across an Orthodontic Program and this is what is stated in their page :
"The International Orthodontic Program will lead to a CODA recognized certificate and Masters"

The school is unable to give me any further information and said that I need to do my own research about career prospects. I am totally confused.
Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
