Hi There,

Interesting to see that you are well aware of the requirements to practice dentistry in the USA.  Since a BDS degree from India is invalid in US, completing a DDS is a must.

But please note even after completing DDS, clear the NBDA II exam and then apply to the state legislature for a licence where you wish to practice.

But getting a licence does not mean, you could begin a practice, since you are an immigrant and residents are given more of an opportunity there in US.

You could opt for a masters degree whereby you specialise in one area of dentistry or get into Research.

Generally Indian medical students opt for a masters degree in Public health

But here again I would like to advise you to consult an abroad education consultant, who would be in a better position to guide you regarding the practising state in US and also courses you coluld opt for.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...

Dear Aspirant,

I agree with Ms. Meghana.

Completing DDS is a must since BDS/MDS is not recognised in US for jobs. Further clearing the NBDA II exam is also essential for doing your practice.

Doing a Masters course in US in Dentistry is what I would suggest, which will add value as well as give you opportunities to work in US.

Best wishes
