CAAPID Applicants for International Dentists

You are a foreign-trained dentist and want to practice in the US, but the process is nerve-racking and has so much uncertainty and unknowns! What do they want from me? How can I improve my chances? Where can I go for help? You are also keenly aware of the intense competition – tens of thousands of people just like you are trying to gain entrance into an Advanced Standing Program – we hear you!
“Dr. S,” as students call him, has devised three levels of help – the Preceptorship Program, Bench Prep Courses, and the Study from Home – all designed by a master educator with nearly 4-decades of teaching experience.

If you have little to add to your resume and need a legitimate boost, the Preceptorship Program will provide you with significant benefits. It features

  • a 7-day bench prep course,
  • unlimited prep evaluation,
  • month(s) of immersive clinical and bench learning alongside Dr. Stevenson.

The mission of the program is to provide an enhanced profile with increased competitive stature for admission into the formal 2-year DDS/DMD Program. All Preceptors will receive a written letter or evaluation and a possible recommendation letter depending on performance.  Learn More …

If you already have a strong resume, are a specialist (or Master’s Degree holder), or are just a little rusty, and only require enhancement with your hands-on skills set, the Bench Prep Courses are the right choice. We offer several options:

  • Shorter ones are school-targeting, intense, and cover only selected topics.
  • The 7-day is our signature course which covers most of the topics.
  • The 10-day is our latest course format which covers all of the topics that US dental schools want to test you on.

During a CAAPID cycle, we offer 3-4 short and 5 long courses only. Seats fill fast, so act early when planning your training. Learn More …

If you are confident about your hands-on skills and are armed with a solid curriculum vitae, the Study from Home option might just be what you need to solidify your acceptance into a program. For a discounted fee, you will have access to

  • selected on-demand recordings,
  • Powerpoint lectures we use for bench prep courses,
  • prep evaluations,
