TOEFL- tEST OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

TOEFL is mandatory for all applicants to the international dental programs irrespective of your visa status, even if you are a

citizen of the United States. Some colleges accept IELTS as an alternative to TOEFL but we recommend taking the TOEFL

exam as almost all the schools accept TOEFL and very few schools accept IELTS.
