Prospective Students

How to Apply

All applications for the Pediatric Dentistry residency program must be submitted through the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) PASS program (Postdoctoral Application Support Service). ADEA PASS simplifies the application process by allowing you to complete one standardized application, rather than individual applications to each program. There is a fee for this service.

All residency applicants are also required to register with the National Matching Service. The Match is used by applicants and programs to determine the final placement of applicants into positions after the application and evaluation process is completed. More information on the Match.
