Now I can answer you. ;)

Sadly the answer is, I don't know!. Certanly most will NOT want to go back to school again, but there isn't always that possibility.
:(

Some explore other options and pathways like bench tests (CA and Minnesota), specialty programs, residency programs, etc.

They don't openly say this, but chances are that I'm too young and unexperienced to make it trough their cut offs.

They clearly prefer applicants with plenty of experience and with post-graduate programs from their countries. None of which I have.

They're not like CA, in Minnesota they examine your application and make decisions based on a case by case basis.

meggs come on,you have been misinformed here,a friend of mine who is struggling to get there told me that they want 2 years of experience and i know someone who is 28 and has been in the us for 2 years so that means he doesent have more than three years of work experience who got the license and he is practicing there but unfortunately i dont have any contact with him right now to ask him about that but if have the experience i would definitely do my best to get minnesota license which is better than going through school again,check them out buddy.

Thanks toothlord, but I'm too late now. And I contacted the very same Minnesota board of dentistry. And did some homework trying to find people with experience in this. Apparently no one had any positive experience to share until now. Anyway, I was never too keen on freezing my butt 365 days a year.
