Hi

If I am not mistaken, you are talking about the Advanced Education Program for foreign dentists. What I am concerned about and what you all should really consider before applying for the same is that they are not accredited by the ADA. They are absolutely tailor made for people who want to go back right after the program.

So please make sure you get this point clear before joining those programs.

You are absolutely right. It is not accredited and and very expensive. i think $50,000/year. They are really for those going back to their own country and there is no guarentee of acceptance onto DDS program as this is what my friend told me. However it may be worth a try if you have the money to spend.

Hi,
You are right that it is Advanced Education program for foreign dentists I am talking about. I have been trying to get into some program for last 3 years but to no avail. So, I am considering my option
1. To get into M.P.H. Program
2.To get into preceptorship program but it is expensive. I think they do not have loans and housing.
Friends..........pls give ur suggestions and ideas.
