    Delaware has required a residency since 1940
    NY has just started
    5 additional states were pending, and I believe Conn is closest to having it required.
    Several others are thinking about it.

    CT will grant you a licence upon completion of an acredited residency now after D-school graduation and successful completion of the national board exam. Or if you want take a regional exam, its upto you! Either way, you can then get the privilige of paying the state of CT $450 a year for your license:eek:

    "California, Minnesota and Connecticut currently allow dental school graduates the option of completing a residency instead of taking a clinical exam, and Washington state and Vermont are also moving in that direction."
