D.D.S. - International Dentist Program Loma Linda University
The Office of Admissions at LLUSD is moving toward a paperless process. Please do not send any documents other than those listed below.
The International Dentist Program is designed to allow qualified dentists educated in countries outside the United States, to earn a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in the United States.
The DDS degree from a U.S. dental college is an educational requirement for eligibility to take the dental licensure examination in many states. The program has a minimum length of two academic years, but may be extended, when necessary, to meet the needs of a particular student. Students take classes in the disciplines of dentistry and receive extensive clinical experience. Students are provided with the opportunity to serve the dental health needs of the local community through off–site clinical rotations.
