Results: The study showed Chinese student got higher scores in fields of basic knowledge, basic medical knowledge and basic legal knowledge, although their knowledge still needed improving. Chinese students also got higher scores in dental professional quality items, except for teaching capability. They should improve scientific research ability and teaching capability as well. Japanese students got lower scores in items of oral professional diagnosis, treatment level and professional foreign language proficiency. Conclusion: For general quality, Chinese students got higher scores except for social acceptability.
