Graduate Dental Education Program Admissions Requirements
A U.S. or international dental degree is required for admission to all Penn Dental Medicine Graduate Dental Education (GDE) programs with the exception of the Pediatric and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) Residency programs, which will only accept a U.S. dental degree.
Applicants who do not have a U.S. DMD/DDS degree (e.g. individuals holding a BDSor other international dental degrees) must provide additional documentation in order to be considered for admission. This additional documentation requires evaluation of their academic credentials by an approved agency.
Please note that the application includes two components:
- PASS (Postdoctoral Application Support Service) through the American Dental Education Association (ADEA)
- Penn Dental Medicine GDE Supplementary Application Requirements
