  • Successful completion of the National Dental Board (INBDE) at the time of application. 
  • Minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale) or equivalent or a cumulative ranking in the top 10% of the applicant's dental school graduating class.

Applicants will apply via ADEA PASS. More details to be posted. 

The following items will need to be completed and submitted via PASS:

  • Three (3) letters of recommendation, one of which should be from an endodontic faculty member or endodontist familiar with your previous clinical and/or didactic endodontic accomplishments.
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Optional 2 X 2 photo
