Fars News (Iran): "Iran Ready to Send Dentists to Regional Countries"

If I worked hard enough at it, I would probably have a post for this blog every day. This story, for instance:
A senior Iranian health ministry official announced on Monday that Tehran is prepared to dispatch dentists and dental care specialists to the regional states.

"Iran is ready to train oral and dental care specialists and send them to the countries of the region," Head of the Health Ministry's Oral and Dental Care Department Mohammad Hossein Khoshnevisan told FNA on Monday.

The meeting, which will be the first of its kind in Iran, will be attended by representatives and oral and dental care specialists from 22 world countries, he added.

Iran has taken wide strides in science and technology, particularly in medical and medicinal fields, in recent years.

Earlier this month, Iranian Health Minister Marzieh Vahid Dastjerdi boasted the country's astonishing progress in producing medical tools, equipment and drugs, saying that Iran ranks first in synthesizing different drugs and medications in the region.

"Iran certainly ranks first in the region in producing medical equipment and medicine and those who stand behind us cannot be compared with Iran at all," Vahid Dastjerdi said addressing the inaugural ceremony of an international exhibition on medical, dentistry and laboratory equipments in Tehran at the time.

Hello! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about dentist in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about dentist. Keep it up!
All dentists in the U.S must graduate from high school and complete required courses such as general biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and statistics/calculus. While most dental schools require at least a bachelors degree, a few schools may consider admitting exceptional students after only 3 years of college. To apply, students must take the DAT or Dental Admissions Test. Admission to dental school is competitive, and is generally determined based on factors such as GPA, DAT scores, recommendation letters, and extracurricular activities. To become a licensed dentist, one must then complete an accredited dental school curriculum and successfully master all clinical competencies and national board exams. Most dental school curriculums require four years of training, however, some states require dentists to complete a post graduate residency program as well. In the U.S., a newly graduated dentist is then awarded the DDS, Doctor of Dental Surgery, degree or the DMD, Doctor of Dental Medicine, degree depending on the dental school attended. Both degrees are the same. A newly graduated dentist can then pursue further specialty residency training ranging from 2 to 6 years. Additionally, dentists participate in continued education where they attend lectures to learn of recent developments, practice new methods, and earn CE hours. There are specific requirements for dentists to attend continued education hours, and dentists who accumulate additional training are better prepared to handle a variety of cases and surprises during treatment. In the UK the training is similar except it is generally a five year undergraduate course leading to a BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery).
