    sure at UWI but where would you be wanting to use the degrees? The dental degree wouldn't be recognized in the US and you would have to go to dental school again. OD degree could be recognized.

    There are also schools in Central America (Guyana, Costa Rica, Belize,Guatemala)

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.

    dental

    The challenging thing about obtaining dental school acceptance is that usually on average, a school accepts 30-50 students versus 120-165 in a US Medical School....

    Not only that but...

    Dentistry is oral surgery, optometry does not include any srugical component. Also, many dental programs offer combined DDS /Maxillofacial surgery residency options.

    I am not putting down optometry, Ok?

    DDS vs MD

    Yes, I know, there was a NP in my class that was accepted to Boston U, for DDS program, but chosed to attend UHSA for MD Degree, regardless, she is now a practicing FM.....I think it is all depends of what you want to do ?

    FM is very diverse and you can treat so many conditions, while as a DDS, you are limited to "Oral Cavity" so say goodbye to everything else you learn in the basic sciences

    BUT, DDS good lifestyle, no residency, and good pay, private practice business model.
    MD, BUSY lifestyle, hard residency, pay is average to good, and you can work anywhere
