Hi everyone do you think there is a chance to get in to an OMS program without getting into the 2 year advanced standing DDS program?Which programs do you think give the best chance to internationally trained dentists?

wake up sunshine, it is very difficult to get into OMFS as international resident even after you pass DDS.

Straight to OMS, without DDS?

I think that would be VERY difficult
The economy is really bad right now, making a lot of students decide to stay in school and specializing.

So you will be competing with students with an American degree, good letters of recommendation from their faculty, etc etc

It is difficult to get in even with an American DDS degree

All the students interested on getting into an OMS program from my school were all working very hard by participating on extra curricular activities, building good rapport with the faculty, doing interships during their summer breaks, making sure they got a 90 + on their boards, etc....
