    happychapter got a reaction from McMarauder in How do Australian/USA trained dentist pay off debt?   
    keep in mind opportunity cost. those two extra years you are making income. 
     
    edit: removed living cost calculations but point still stands. economically it saves time and money to go to australia to do your undergrad if you are sure:
    1. you definately dont want to specialize
    2. you definately know u want to be a dentist

    happychapter got a reaction from molarmania in Will the equivalency process every stop/slow down?   
    wow that really sucks. i guess ill try my luck with medicine then, which sucks since I really wanted to do dentistry but both careers seem to be around the same, except job outlook seems to be going up for medicine and downward for dentistry, at least from what i see

    I am currently in the process of thinking about applying to dental school, but talks of oversaturation are worrying me to no end and I heard the equivalency process plays a part.
     
    Supposedly the process was open in the past(?) but then it closed again, and finally reopened in 2010. Right now in the NDEB website: https://ndeb-bned.ca/en/dental-programs/historical-pass-rates , the rate at which dental graduates are being certified seems crazy. 10 years ago there were 664 new dental grads, 8 years later there are 1143. The dentist:population ratio has also dropped significantly in that time frame, and I'm started to get really worried about my future. is there any chance that NDEB will stop certifying international grads in the forseeable future or is the upward trend going to continue? I will be finishing my dental degree in 5 years, and the change that has happened only in the past 8 years is really scaring me
