    Hi, there r many dental schools who accept international graduates into their program. So if u want to do prosthodontics look for the schools which offer this program. This is the link which help u find accredited prosthodontics program that u want in all US. Check the website of each school to see if they accept international dentists.

    Hope this help

    I think U need to apply before the dead line then work on ur visa. Some programs have a dead line around September- October. However if u get accepted the school will help with ur visa. Any way if u apply this year this mean u start ur study Next year & NOT this year. So the main thing is to send all required document as soon as possible.

    Hello Rubydent i guess i know what your asking for exactly, i think you wanna come to USA and work, but my question is do you wanna work as a dentist under supervision in a dental clinic or you wanna work as an assistant, in case of the first the only way to do is to take an exam called national dental Board part I exam then the TOEFL exam and apply to one of the dental schools here in USA that accept foreign grads then you can get 2 to 3 years of training in the USA which is the period required to complete this program and after you can choose between staying and getting licensed in the US or you can go back to practice in EGYPT since there is no problem in the financial status, you cannot work as a dentist under supervision in a dental office and its illegal to work without a license in the USA even if you a dental grade but if you wanna work as dental assistant you will need to get a valid working visa or an immigration visa to be able to work in a dental office here in the USA and you will be asked to have a valid XRAY license and may a registered dental assistant license, i guess i explained both situation if you have any other questions please do ask
