Can a Bachelor in Dentistry (BDS) degree get you a job abroad especially in countries like USA and Canada?

A doctor (BDS) once told me that a BDS degree is not enough to make you get a job abroad especially in countries like USA and Canada. He said you must go and further there (paying huge amount of school fees) or you need to become a consultant here before you can be employed to work over there.

I doubted it but he’s a doctor of dentistry too , what he told me is something different from what i get from the internet but because he has consultants and other seniors in the field he might be saying the truth.

Can someone please confirm this information, thank you

I have to pick between Nursing and Public health, Please guide me

He’s saying the truth
Dentists are flooded in Canada especially places like Toronto and chances of getting it with just BDS are less, u will need to be re-certified, and u will be paying school fees of almost $50,000-$60,000 yearly in order to get be re-certified with DDS, if not, there are no or lesser chances of getting a job there unless u are willing to make the sacrifices, but I will advise u go for another country if u really want to study outside your country

And I also got an information that for Canada, unless your degree is from USA, Australia, Ireland or New-Zealand, u cannot practice dentistry there, the only option is to redo a four year degree program at a Canadian school or other sacrifices that can be made. A DMD program to be specific
