Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program for Positions Beginning in 2018


I will be unavailable to receive e-mails the day results are released.

If you are unable to receive e-mail or access your residency's Match results online on the Match Results Release Date, you can provide a signed written request to NMS on program letterhead to send an e-mail of the results to an alternate contact.

The alternate e-mail will not replace the e-mail currently on file in the NMS Match System. All account and residency contact information will remain the same.

The alternate contact will receive an e-mail with the Match results. NMS will send the result to only one e-mail address for each residency.


How do I remove or add positions in the Post-Match process?

After the Match is completed, a list of programs that were Active at the time of the Match and that did not fill all their positions in the Match is made available to applicants who are still seeking a position.

Programs must log in to the NMS Match System in order to update the information shown on the List of Programs with Available Positions.

Remove Positions

  • Log in to the NMS Match System
  • Select the Edit button in the Positions Available in Post-Match section of the Program Dashboard
  • Use the drop-down menu to select the number of positions still available in your program

If you set the number of positions available to 0, the program will be removed from the list that is provided to unmatched applicants.

There is no additional charge to programs for updating their contact information or removing positions from the List of Programs with Available Positions.

Add Positions

  • Log in to the NMS Match System
  • Select the Edit button in the Positions Available in Post-Match section of the Program Dashboard
  • Use the drop-down menu to select the number of positions available in your program

Programs that have a number of available Post-Match positions greater than zero will be shown on the List of Programs with Available Positions.

Any position that was not offered in the Match but is added in the Post-Match will be included in the total number of positions offered by the program for purposes of calculating the Match fee for the program.
