    I was wondering if anyone knew what happens if you have a dentistry qualification from the UK and you want to move abroad? Would you have to get a new degree of some sort of conversion course? thank you if anyone knows! xx

    I think with a BDS degree from the UK, you can practice in most European countries as well as NZ and Australia.

    However it is apparently nigh on impossible to go to the USA with a UK medical or dental degree (it is technically possible but you have to sit the USMLE exam and even then you have virtually no chance of getting a job) and I believe it's similar if you want to go to Canada.
