The University of Washington International Dentist DDS Program (UWIDDS) offers qualified graduates of foreign dental programs the opportunity to earn the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Only a small number of students will be accepted each year.
Successful completion of the advanced standing placement DDS program will allow graduates to take state or regional board examinations to be eligible for dental licensure and dental practice within the United States. The UWIDDS is a full-time, daily program. The accepted students will begin in the winter quarter of 2020 with graduation anticipated in June 2022. The program will consist of integration into the standard predoctoral program’s clerkship model, classroom lectures and direct patient care.
Information for Foreign Trained Dentists
Permission to practice dentistry in the State of Washington is dependent on the candidate’s possession of a dental degree from a dental school approved by the Washington State Department of Health, Dental Quality Assurance Commission (DQAC). Additional information is available on the DQAC website.
Some individuals meet the education portion of the Washington state requirement for licensure by earning a degree from one of our graduate programs providing clinical training in a specialty area. More information on our graduate programs.

Medically reviewed by Kaci Durbin, MD Last updated on Jun 7, 2020.
What is gabapentin?
Gabapentin is an anti-epileptic drug, also called an anticonvulsant. It affects chemicals and nerves in the body that are involved in the cause of seizures and some types of pain.
Gabapentin is used together with other medicines to treat partial seizures in adults and children at least 3 years old.
Gabapentin is also used to treat neuropathic pain (nerve pain) caused by herpes virus or shingles (herpes zoster) in adults.
Use only the brand and form of gabapentin your doctor has prescribed. Check your medicine each time you get a refill to make sure you receive the correct form.
The Gralise brand of gabapentin is indicated for the management of neuropathic pain only. It is not used for epilepsy.
Horizant is used to treat nerve pain and restless legs syndrome (RLS).
The Neurontin brand is used to treat seizures in adults and children who are at least 3 years old, in addition to neuropathic pain.
Gabapentin can cause life-threatening breathing problems, especially in older adults or people with COPD. Seek emergency medical attention if you have very slow breathing.
Some people have thoughts about suicide or behavior changes while taking gabapentin. Stay alert to changes in your mood or symptoms. Report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor.
Avoid driving or hazardous activity until you know how gabapentin will affect you. Dizziness or drowsiness can cause falls, accidents, or severe injuries.
Do not stop using gabapentin suddenly, even if you feel fine.
Before taking this medicine
You should not use gabapentin if you are allergic to it.
To make sure gabapentin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:
Some people have thoughts about suicide while taking this medicine. Children taking gabapentin may have behavior changes. Stay alert to changes in your mood or symptoms. Report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor.
It is not known whether this medicine will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
Seizure control is very important during pregnancy, and having a seizure could harm both mother and baby. Do not start or stop taking gabapentin for seizures without your doctor’s advice, and tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant.
It may not be safe to breastfeed while using this medicine. Ask your doctor about any risk.
How should I take gabapentin?
Take gabapentin exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
If your doctor changes your brand, strength, or type of gabapentin, your dosage needs may change. Ask your pharmacist if you have any questions about the new kind of gabapentin you receive at the pharmacy.
The Horizant brand of gabapentin should not be taken during the day.

UW and the community | Video

The University of Washington typically offers a broad schedule of health and fitness classes for the community. But with COVID-19 prompting closures of campuses and work spaces, gyms like the IMA Building also found themselves empty with in-person activities canceled.
“I knew we had to do something,” said Jeff Palmer, fitness manager for UW Recreation. “I wanted to make sure everyone was getting an awesome, fun workout.”
Now, Palmer is teaching several virtual classes a week, part of UW Recreation’s effort to make its activities accessible while people are physically distancing during the pandemic.
Danny Arguetty, UW Recreation’s mindfulness manager, also shifted from training new instructors to teaching virtual classes on meditation and yoga. Zumba instructor Karen Cornelio is leading free dance exercise classes in addition to other fitness and mindfulness sessions offered by The Whole U, an group that promotes wellness within the UW community.
They say that in addition to the positive benefits of exercise, the live virtual classes have helped participants create some structure and community in their lives.
“People are really craving that, at a time when things are out of control,” Palmer said. He said he’s also found a new audience of people who already felt uncomfortable going to gyms or who needed to be home anyway.
If you are not able to join a live class, many are archived in this YouTube library. The videos are open to the public, so anyone can view them.
“Virtual programming has just really, really taken off. We’re definitely going to continue virtual training even when we return to the IMA,” Palmer said.
