Application Procedure

 Department of Veterans Affairs Application for Residents

To be eligible for post graduate training in the General Practice Residency Program, a resident must be a graduate of an ADA accredited dental school. Dental School transcripts, undergraduate transcripts and National Board scores as well as three letters of recommendation are required. The applicant must fill out the Department of Veterans Affairs Application for Residents as well as submit a small photo.

Applicants may submit their application independently or through PASS, the Postdoctoral Application Support Service. If the application is sent through PASS, the letters and dental school transcripts that are part of the PASS application are adequate. Undergraduate transcripts and the VA application are still required. A photo is also requested. The General Practice Residency program does not participate in the National Matching Service Program.
