Hi guys! Although I’m a US citizen my family resides in Italy so I tend to spend my summers there when I’m not attending university in the States. My question is, a lot of my shadowing hours were conducted with an Italian dentist rather than a US based one. I plan on shadowing a dentist in the US once I get back to the States but my question is should I still mention/report my shadowing hours in Europe on my application or will dental schools not accept them?
Thank you!!

They should accept them. Your still shadowing a dentist after all. I think they ask for the address of the dentist on the app, so they’ll know he/she was from overseas, just fyi.
