Advanced Ed – Endodontics Admissions Criteria

Applicants must:

  • Be a citizen of the United States or a foreign national with a visa permitting permanent residence.
  • Applicants must also submit evidence of graduation from a school of dentistry accredited by the American Dental Association or the Canadian Dental Association.
  • Have a minimum dental school 3.0 GPA  and rank in the top 75% of their graduating class.
  • The Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT) is preferred but not required. Scores can be self-reported on the ADEA PASS application.
  • Residents accepted directly after graduating from dental school must successfully pass a U.S. regional or equivalent Canadian clinical licensure exam prior to or no later than the end of the first year of residency (Spring semester). Applicants, who have been out of dental school for a year or more, must successfully pass a clinical licensure exam before they start in UMKC’s Endodontic residency.
  • Application to the optional Oral & Craniofacial Sciences MS program requires successful completion of the GRE, but the separate application to the OCS program occurs after acceptance into the Endodontics residency program. (UMKC GRE code is 6872)
