Hi, I'm a third year dental student from Canada who is interested in pedo. It seems most Canadian programs only accept applicants who have at least one year of experience after DDS and then offer a 3-year program. I am not too keen on investing 4 additional years so I'm currently looking at US programs.

There are so many programs offered in the US, how do I choose? Do certain schools have a good/bad reputation? Are certain schools more competitive? What is your approach to applying? Just apply to as many as possible and see which ones call back?

Any help is much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
