Applicants must hold either the DDS or DMD degree. Other course work may be required as individualized programs are developed by the faculty to meet the specific needs of each student.
Those applying for the Graduate Endodontics Program are encouraged to have at least one year of experience in general dentistry, i.e.; private practice, member of the Armed Forces, Public Health Service, or an AGD/GPR experience. However, this is not absolutely necessary. We do not require a GRE exam score for admission.
