Why it is so hard to become a Dentist in North America?

Why it is so hard to become a Dentist in North America?

ORANJESTAD – Why it is so hard to become a Dentist in North America? This article will explore the challenges that students face when they are trying to pursue their dreams of becoming a dentist.

Students in Canada have to complete a 4-year degree, along with volunteer hours and have to write an entrance exam before they can be admitted to a dental school. Canada only has 10 dental schools across the country, not only is it hard to get an acceptance in theses schools the limited seats and capacity sometimes make it impossible.

The dental school admission process is competitive and growing more difficult every year. The increasing requirement to have higher GPAs and DAT scores are putting a lot of pressure on students. Dental schools in Canada are extremely competitive. So, what is an alternative for a student who is unable to secure a seat within Canada due to limited seats, lack of volunteer hours or average scores in the qualifying exams. Do these students deserve a shot at becoming a dentist, would they make good dentists?

Everyone has a different learning style. Dentists need to have good manual dexterity and many students excel at dentistry in the practical world as opposed to theoretical. So yes, students that might not have met all the requirements do make incredible dentists.

In Asian countries, students that want to become doctors, dentists, or lawyer, do not join universities, they go directly into medical, dental or law school. These counties believe that if you have chosen one of these professions, you should spend more time concentrating on courses that will help you in the respective field. The success rate is astonishing, and most of the time these countries produce the best professionals that often go abroad to work.

The Caribbean schools have also adopted this model to help North American students fulfill their dreams. Most Caribbean islands have started to open medical schools in order to accommodate the increase in demand for doctors. One of these schools has also invested their time to open a dentistry branch as part of their school. Nucleus University school of medicine and dentistry is giving students an opportunity to become a dentist in Canada with half the cost and the same curriculum being taught at the top schools in Canada.

Nucleus University school of dentistry offers students to become a dentist right after high school similar to some Asian countries. Serious students with exemplary resumes that could not get a seat in dental schools across North America, or high school students that want to save time and become young dentist are taking full advantage of this alternative route and are having success in high numbers.

Caribbean Medical & Dental School

Caribbean Medical & Dental School

ORANJESTAD – Since the pandemic, there has been a spike of new medical and dental schools opening up across the globe. How does a student decide where to pursue their dream of becoming a doctor or a dentist? How do you decide which school would be the best fit for you? In the last decade there has been a rise in students going abroad and studying in the Caribbean islands to fulfill their career goals. This article will concentrate on the Caribbean Islands and what it means to graduate from one of the schools on these islands.

If you are starting your journey in the health care field and decide to go abroad, what attributes are you looking for since the choice of schools has increased. Is it safety? Is it cost? Is it accreditation?

Starting off with Aruba, Aruba is a multicultural island society, with Caribbean and Latin America influence. Aruba was once a Dutch colony, after separating from the Dutch in 1986, Aruba has its own government.

Aruba is beautiful and has virtually no crime. Cost of living is at par with the western world as it is very progressive. Motto for the island states “One Happy Island”, which you can feel in the culture and the people residing there.

Nucleus University School of Medicine and Dentistry also known as “NUSOM” is one such school that is apart from most of the other schools in the Caribbean. For one, it offers dentistry. The curriculum for dentistry is based of North American curriculum and students from the US and Canada are able to practice in their respective countries once they have finished studying at NUSOM. Why did they start a dental school as opposed to other school just concentrating on medicine? NUSOM saw the adversity students were facing, especially in Canada to get admitted into dental schools. The strict criteria and unimaginable pre-requisites discouraged a lot of students to pursue their dreams. NUSOM is giving these students an opportunity to work hard and achieve their dreams.

NUSOM is also known to have teachers teach from all across the globe for their Medicine program. The school wanted to make sure that it is apart from other schools in providing the best education through the best teachers. NUSOM has one of the best clinical rotations in the US and has affiliations with Johns Hopkins hospitals in Maryland, Baltimore. So, if you are thinking of becoming a doctor, and want to secure the best rotations, consider going to Aruba.

As compared to other top medical or dental schools in countries such as Australia, Aruba is only a 4-hour plane ride away. So if you are interested in becoming a doctor or a dentist, visit www.nusom.org to get more information, as it might be the first step for you to change your life
