    Hi. I'm a first year dental student. Given that my clinical experience is limited, what I've seen so far points me to ortho. There doesnt seem to be an integrated centralized process like AADSAS for post-dental school. So does anyone know of any good websites for these programs? Can you do ortho specialty in a hospital or will it always be in a dental school? Can you go a few days a week or is it a all day, 5 days a week type of lifestyle? When do you start to get ready to apply (3rd year or 4th?) What kind of credentials does one need, besides 4.0s obviously unless someone is willing to share their past stats and outcome of application. Thank you.

    I'd recommend doing a search. Believe it or not, lots of first-year dental students want to become orthodontists, and they usually ask the same questions as you.

    The analogous application to AADSAS that is used by postdoctoral programs is called PASS (postdoctoral application support service) and it is administered by ADEA (american dental education association). Problem is not all the programs use it; some use their own applications. If you check out adea.org there is a click for PASS and then you can click onto search engine for applicants to find information about programs that use PASS.

    I know of at least two ortho programs that are not in dental schools. There is one at Albert Einstein Hospital in Philadelphia and there is one at Eastman Dental Center in Rochester, New York. EDC is technically not a dental school but an institute for postdoctoral training and research that is now a part of the University of Rochester.

    Hey IvyDiver,
    Thanks so much for the straightforward info and not judging me for wanting info like the previous posts.

    Other non-dental school ortho programs that I can think of are Montefiore and St. Barnabas in NYC, and the Mayo Clinic in Minn. One of the good things about non-dental school ortho residencies is that they give you a stipend.

    No judgment in my post, guy. Seriously, try doing a search and you'll be surprised how much info you turn up.

    Non-dental school ortho programs:
    Montefiore (NY)
    St. Barnabas (NY)
    Maimonides (NY)
    Eastman (NY)
    Albert Einstein (PA)
    Children's National Medical Center (DC)
    Vanderbilt (TN)
    St. Louis University (MO)
    Mayo Clinic (MN)

    They don't all give you a stipend. St. Louis used to have a dental school back in the day, but is now just a stand alone clinic with a few specialties.
