Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program for Positions Beginning in 2023

Match Results

You must log into the NMS Match System to access your Match result. Applicants who are not matched have access to a List of Programs with Available Positions in the Post-Match Process.

If you matched to a position, you should contact the program to acknowledge the Match result as soon as possible after 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on Match Results Day. Programs must send letters of confirmation of the Match results to matched applicants within 10 days of the release of Match results. Matched applicants must return the letter of confirmation in accordance with the programs instructions within 30 days of the Match Results Day.

If you did not match, you may participate in the Post-Match Process for any available positions.

Although NMS makes every effort to provide you with your Match result on Match Results Day, failure to receive your result on that day does not affect your obligation to the program to which you are matched.


Post-Match Process

Unmatched applicants are permitted to seek positions and programs are permitted to fill positions that remain available independently of the Dental Match. Unmatched applicants should contact programs directly regarding eligibility, application, and admission requirements.

Registered applicants who did not obtain a position can log into the NMS Match System to access the List of Programs with Available Positions. This list provides the number of positions available and the contact information for each program. Programs may update the information on the list as positions fill or new positions become available.

Programs have access to information on applicants who either certified a Rank Order List but were not matched or withdrew but indicated they were interested in seeking a position in the Post-Match Process.

Applicants who did not register for the Match but now want to access to the List Programs with Available Positions must contact NMS to request access and pay a $95 USD access fee.

Questions related to applications should be directed to ADEA PASS customer support at or 617-612-2065.
