      Hi all

      Does any of the dental schools in Texas have the Advanced Standing Program available for foreign trained dentists???....help!....

      Yeah, I did call up the schools in Texas a while back and was told that they only accepted in-state residents only and the spots are very limited.

        Hey angie.
        Your question was implying that you wanted to know of any Texas advanced standing programs, not how difficult their selection criteria is.
        However, I agree witth everyone else as well. You need to be at least a TX resident and some of them go as far as asking for GRE's.
        Go figure.
        Although I still believe that if you are good enough, you can pull it off.
        Good luck.

          They not only prefer Tx residents but you need to be a perm. resident to get anywhere near them. I got fed up of waiting, so changed my profession!!!

          Yeah, that is what I meant by "in-state residents", ie you have to be a permanent resident, in this case, Texas permanent resident.

              I meant Tx resident and perm resident of the US. They insist that you must attain permanent residency before you start college and not be the process of getting one. Atleast that's what I was told 2 years ago. I qualify as a Tx resident but am not a perm resident of the US!!!

              Angie...I am very happy with my new profession. Although I'm yet to graduate with my Master's, I'm not regretting a minute of my decision. Maybe I'll get back to dentistry in future.
              Till then the knowledge I gain will help make me useful...somewhere!! :laugh: :smuggrin:

                  let me know....
                  i am from saveetha ...

                  Hi Preethi,
                  I am from SPDC ,Wardha,Maharashtra.
                  I had taken GRE so as to apply in Baylor,TX.It requires the Foreign trained dentists to take Toefl and GRE Gen test. But unfortunately i am not a permanent resident of US:(((..so hard luck...I have heard tht Baylor accepts only perm .residents..I was advised to reapply for 2007 anyways ...

                  Does anyone know anything about Baylor taking foreign trained dentists..

                  Good luck to everyone.
                  regards.
