Before You Register

  • Learn About Sending Applications to Programs

    Registration for the Match does NOT constitute an application to any of the dental programs participating in the Match. You should check with each program directly about how to submit an application. Most, but not all, programs use the ADEA PASS application service and you can send applications to programs using that service.


Participating Programs

ORTHO, PERIO, PROS, ANES and Canadian GPR programs participate in Phase I of the Match. AEGD, US GPR, OMS and PED programs participate in Phase II of the Match. Most (but not all) programs of these types participate in the Match. Programs of other types do not participate in the Match.

Fee

There is a fee of $95 USD to register for the Match. The registration fee is non-refundable, non-transferable and irrevocable.

The Match registration fee covers participation in both Phase I and Phase II of the Match. Applicants who register for Phase I but do not obtain a position in Phase I do not have to register again or pay an additional fee to participate in Phase II.

Timing

It is recommended that you register for the Match by October 1, 2020. You must be registered in order to submit your Rank Order List and be ranked by programs. The final deadline to register to participate in each Phase of the Match is:

For Phase I (ORTHO, PERIO, PROS, ANES and Canadian GPR):
November 13, 2020
For Phase II (AEGD, US GPR, OMS and PED):
January 8, 2021

Most programs submit their Rank Order Lists for the Match well before the Rank Order List deadline. Therefore, to ensure you are able to be ranked by programs, you should register well before the final dates listed above.
