The Dental College of Georgia considers students applying to the DMD program who are

specific VISA credentials will have their application considered for admissions. You
can learn if your VISA is considered by DCG by inquiring at email@example.com
. However, all of our candidates must complete at least 90 semester hours of course
work at an American accredited institution (giving them a GPA). It usually takes
