Default BDS (Dental) in India, planning to study in US

Hi Friends,

My brother is finishing his BDS in India this year. I am planning to bring him to US for the studies in USA. Could you please help me on what he needs to do to enter here and are there any hurdles. I am new to USA too so don't know much about the ways so trying to find out. All I heard is unlike engineering its difficult to come for medical studies to USA.

Thank you for your help and support.

I think he has to give some BDS exam first to get a scroe and then using that he should be able to apply to various colleges. The course fees is about $200,000 . So if you can get admission somewhere and can pay the fees then he can be minting money soon

Hi vvenkat007,

My wife has done BDS from India and is currently here in the US with me trying to get into a dental school.

http://nbdeforum.com is a good website to begin with for useful info.

First to come from India, he probably needs to apply for a Masters in Public Health or some degree like that to come to the US. Then, he has to take the National Board of Dental Examinations (NBDE Part I and/or Part II depending on school requirement) and ace them. Also, TOEFL exam ofcourse.

Then, he can apply to the 25 or so schools in the US that actually allow foriegn-trained dentists to get admitted into their 2nd or 3rd year (again depending on school) of DDS classes.

PM me if you have any questions. All the best to your brother!
