Dental education in Canada

Does it matter?  You get a dental degree in Canada to practice dentistry in Canada.  

Unless you’re an academic, you aren’t likely to be doing any international collaboration.  

Yes, it matters to me hence why I'm asking the question. I might have to move to France or the USA for family reasons so I'd like to know if you can practice dental medicine with a Canadian degree.

You can practise in France by virtue of the France-Quebec arrangement (http://www.odq.qc.ca/Étudesetdemandesdepermis/HorsQuébec/EntenteFranceQuébec/tabid/384/language/fr-CA/Default.aspx). 

For the United States, I am sure your Canadian DMD/DDS would also be recognized (https://www.ada.org/en/education-careers/licensure/state-dental-licensure-for-us-dentists). Graduates of accredited U.S. and Canadian dental education programs are eligible for licensure in the United States.

So concern yourself with accreditation, not  reputation.  School reputation is surprisingly unimportant in being employed as a dentist.  Just look at how many dentists trained in developing countries are working in Canada.

Thanks for your answer!

Does dental education in Canada have a good reputation worldwide?

I went to stanford and umichigan for undergrad and from the people I've met, most people don't know about  Canadian dental schools. But from what I hear, Canadian DDS/DMD is recognized in the US.
