Internationally Trained Dentist Program

The Internationally Trained Dentist Program offers an opportunity for dentists who are graduates of foreign dental schools to obtain a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Graduates of the ITDP will be eligible to take most state and regional dental licensing examinations offered in the U.S. (a few states still require US citizenship for dental licensure). This page addresses financial help and student budgets for the ITDP.
