1. I am a foreign Dentist having graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree, having 9 years of experience serving patients, what are my chances of practicing in the United States? If you are a foreign educated dentist and wish to practice in the United States, you will need to be accepted and enroll in a dental education program accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA). You can obtain a Doctor of Dental Surgery or a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree by attending an advanced standing program in the U.S. You will also need to pass the Integrated National Board Dental Examination (INBDE), a standardized written exam. Once you earn your D.D.S or D.M.D, you will then be able to seek work in the U.S. through Optional Practical Training (OPT) for 12 months. If you desire to work in the United States beyond those 12 months, you will need to research other nonimmigrant visa options such as the H-1B nonimmigrant visa worker program.


2. What are the requirements to practice in the United States? Most states require the attainment of a Doctor of Dental Surgery or a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, passing the INBDE, and a State License in order to practice in the field of Dentistry.
