Application Process


Residency Requirements

Applicants should be U.S. or Canadian citizens, rank in the top 25% of their dental school class, and have National Board scores of 88 or above.  Individuals who do not meet these requirements, but who have acquired significant clinical experience (GPR, OMS internship, etc.) may be considered for admission if strong references support their application.

Application process

Indiana University participates in the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) of the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) and the match.

Applicants to our program may register for a match number within the PASS applicant portal.  This will enable applicants to enter all necessary data at the PASS site, select one or both services and submit/pay through ADEA.  Data will flow to National Matching Services, Inc. (NMS) for all applicants who select the Dental Match from the service menu, and ADEA will transmit the appropriate fees to NMS.

Three letters of recommendation are required.  One must be from the Dean of your dental school and if available provide your class standing and national board scores. The two other letters should be from full-time dental school faculty members. One of the letters should be from a full time oral and maxillofacial surgery faculty.   

The following materials should be sent directly to OMS department:   A current CV
