  1. Aussie Dental school applicants only need a high school diploma to get into most Aussie Dental Schools.(except Usyd and melbourn) I strongly encourage Canadian high school graduates to apply to Aussie Dental Schools.(skip crazy Canadian Undergrad study) If you have good high school GPA, why not go to dental school right after high school (Aussie dental schools) and come back to CANADA and practice dentistry. You will be way younger than other dentists in Canada. (Remember you didn't do your undergraduate,,,,,…it'll save your energy and time)…Trust me…University is way harder than high school….

  5. Way more than 15.....and most internationals are Canadians. (eg. appr. 10 Canadians in each year of University of Sydney Dental School) You only need a high school diploma in order to get into most Aussie Dental Schools.
  6. Dear Canadian Dental students, This email will make sure that you are aware of the issues/problems about the recent accreditation by Canadian Dental Association The Canadian Dental Association recently made an agreement with Australian Dental Association to recognize(accredit) each other’s dental graduates. This means that dental school graduates from Australian Dental School will be treated equally as dental graduate from Canadian Dental School (CDS) for licensing(license to practice dentistry) in Canada. Thus graduates from Australian Dental Schools (ADS) don’t have to go through the rigorous qualifying programs or sets of exams that all foreign dental graduates have to pass in order to practice in Canada. Currently there are about 9 dental schools in Australia and most Australian dental schools have international students, mostly Canadians. For example, at University of Sydney, dental school has about 10-15 international students in EACH year and more than 95% of them are Canadians. This means that there will be about 10 Canadian dental graduates from University of Sydney by the end of 2010. And they will be treated equally like dental graduates from Canadian dental school for licensing in Canada. The number of Canadian graduate of Australian Dental school expected to be higher since there are 8 more dental schools that has Canadians. The problems arises when; 1) the quality of Canadian dental graduates from ADS (Australian Dental School) are inferior to the graduates from Canadian Dental School (CDS). For example, average undergraduate GPA (for entrance to dental school) of Canadian dental graduates from ADS are sub 3.0 (out of 4.0), which is much lower than the average GPA of dental students from CDS. (public health threat) 2) the movement of dentist is ONE-WAY.(From Australia to Canada) Most dentists from ADS or CDS will have problems of going to other countries to practice because of the immigration issues (even if their education is accredited) However, Canadian dental graduates from ADS will have NO Problem of practicing the dentistry in Canada since they are CANADIANS and their education is accredited by the Canadian Dental association. There is NO Australian Dental students in CDS who will take advantage of this agreement since there’s not many Australians in CDS. If you are in doubt of #1 above, ask Canadian dental graduates from ADS to present their Canadian transcripts ( yes, they went to Canadian undergraduate schools. They had low GPA and couldn’t get into Canadian Dental schools) then you will see what I mean. If you are in doubt of #2 above, do the research about the student composition of each dental schools in Australia and Canada. Most Canadian dental graduates from ADS will take advantage of this agreement since most of them wants to come back to Canada. This is equal to the creation of new Dental schools in Canada (since these Australian dental school graduates can be licensed like Canadian dental school graduates) with much lower entrance GPA and DAT score. I’m worried that foreign dental school graduates(Australia) get licensed to practice in Canada without going through the proper qualifying programs or exams. I know that Canada has an agreement with USA dental schools. However, most USA dental student don’t have sub-3.0 GPA to get into dental schools and USA dental students are there to stay and practice. It’s not like the back-door schools like the ones in Australia Dental Schools where rejects from Canadian dental schools gets in. And who knows that Canadian Dental schools will accredit more dental schools around the world like UK dental schools where there are some Canadians and Indian dental schools where graduates are already in Canada.
