Dental License in Pennsylvania for Foreign Trained Dentists


The Keystone State, one of the original 13 colonies, is home to many foreign trained dentists, and is open to you as well if you satisfy the requirements of the state board of dentistry, it's relatively straight-forward, and I will copy and paste from the pertinent chapters of the state's regulations:

Education Requirement:

Foreign trained dentists may satisfy the education requirement by obtaining additional preclinical and clinical training in a CODA accredited dental school that will lead to the awarding of the DMD or DDS degree by that school. So the board does not specify exact criteria for the additional training as long as it culminates in a dental degree.

Written Examination Requirement:

Candidates for licensure shall pass the National Board Dental Examination.

Clinical Examination Requirement:

Candidates for licensure shall pass the Northeast Regional Board (NERB) Dental Examination.

Other Requirement:

The Pennsylvania Board will recognize successful completion of the NERB Dental Examination for up to 5 years from the date scores are reported to the Board. After 5 years, the Board will accept passing scores on the examination only if the candidate has been engaged in postgraduate or in the practice of dentistry in another jurisdiction.
