The International Dentist Program (IDP) is for the
internationally trained dentist who seeks to practice dentistry in
the United States. Graduates receive a DDS degree and are
eligible to participate in the various licensure examinations given
across the country.
The University at Buffalo offers a preparatory course in
restorative dentistry for international dentists. This course is
optimal for those who may need better preparation in fixed and
removable prosthodontics, operative dentistry, and treatment
planning for the testing required by most U.S. dental schools as
part of their admissions process.
