How to Apply

Applications are made through the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS). There is no separate application required.

We participate in MATCH, and our MATCH program code number is: 293325.

Applicants are encouraged to take the Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT) prior to application, but this is NOT a requirement.

Applicants will be notified by MATCH in January 2020.

We ask that each resident provide a current resume or CV with a 2 x 2 photograph.


Application materials must be completed to PASS by December 15, 2019. Our program deadline is January 1, 2020, with interviews also to be completed by January 1, 2020.


All applicants must meet one of the following criteria for application:

*Foreign-trained dental graduates with advanced training in US schools do not meet CODA requirements for application to our program


Personal interviews are required prior to January 1, 2020.

To schedule an interview and site visit, residency applicants should contact the General Practice Residency Program Manager prior to our final closing date of January 1, 2020. These visits permit the applicant to gain a firsthand view of the hospital, dental services and resources, as well as provide the staff with an opportunity to assess individual attributes and aspirations of the applicant.
