Does anyone know when the cycle opens this year for Endo applications through ADEA PASS?
 
Has anyone took ADAT this year? How was the overall questions? I am going to take it in 2 weeks. Any advice?

Since you have paid the registration fee, you do not need to pay any additional fees. There are several hands-on CE courses available that you can enroll in by paying the required fees.
What you should do is attend the presentations that interest you, explore the vendors' booths, and meet and greet the current endodontics directors and residents. They have a schedule of each school's alumni reception, which you should consider attending and introducing yourself to the directors. I personally spoke with one director, expressed my interest in visiting the school, and the director welcomed me to visit. Later on, I received an interview invitation. You should try it too!

Refer to this schedule ;):

You would typically sign up online when you were registering. I am not sure whether you can sign up on-site.

Hi, if anyone recently has had experience with the endodontics residency application process, could you kindly answer the following questions?

1) if applying early is important, what would be the latest date that is still considered early enough to be competitive?

2) Is it possible to submit your application before having completed the INDBE (integrated national board exams) ? If so, how much time after submitting the application should you complete the board exams by?

3) if you submit board exam scores after applying, are you still able to receive interviews from endo residency programs before submitting the board scores?

4) what are the chances for someone straight out of dental school with cumulative 3.9 GPA, rank #5/110 first year, #18/110 second year, with extensive class leadership experience in dental school?

5) does research/ participation in AAE make a huge difference in the application?

6) how did previous applicants know endodontics was their passion?

Thanks so much in advance !

For anyone that is applying this cycle or applied past cycle have you been able sent out your transcripts and INDBE scores before the application open date? For Boards scores is it possible to send it out right now? I know for transcripts there's a mail address to send it to, is it a safe bet to send transcripts to that address right now and once applications open send another electronical copy?

Thanks!

1. Ideally before June 1. June 15 there’s still a chance. By June 30th most programs have sent invitations.
2. Not sure
3. Not sure but probably
4. Sounds possible but challenging. Depends on your current rank, not your best year. Your grades are good enough you're likely to get in with a few years experience
5. They can help, program dependent.
6. Years of practice for me, but figure it out for yourself, you’ll have to convincingly answer this a lot :)

2&3
Some programs may require all application materials, including exam scores, to be submitted by a certain deadline, while others may allow for a bit more flexibility. It's best to check with each program individually to confirm their specific needs , My opinion it’s better to submit along with application
 
6) how did previous applicants know endodontics was their passion?
"Why endo?" will be the one question you will be asked at every interview. Do some soul searching and nail down your real personal answer. Please don't say "I just love relieving pain" (you can do this as a GP too!) and nothing else LOL literally every applicant says this.

Hi everyone. I’m a reapplicant this year. Last year when I applied it was the cycle AFTER graduating dental school while I was just starting my AEGD residency. Now that I’m reapplying and at the end of my residency, I’m not sure what needs to be updated since PASS has all my transcripts from my undergrad/pre doc education which hasn’t changed. The only thing I can think of is the pass/fail classes that I’ve had to take during residency will likely require a transcript but that’s not for a degree. Does anyone have any insight besides an updated CV to include my residency and perhaps a new personal statement? Thanks and good luck to all applicants!
 
Ahh I see this thread already alive and active!! Good luck this cycle! I’ll be at the meeting I have one more year left of residency!! I am presenting a table clinic so if you want to stop by I am table clinic #33! Thursday from 1-4

I’m so envious of you guys. I was in residency from ‘19-‘21. Cancelled both meetings. Went to one before residency though. They are a lot of fun.

1) There is no latest date, just apply as soon as it opens. In my opinion, within a week.

2) Yes you can, in general, submit your application even before evaluation and exams are available. Try to have the result within 2 weeks I'd say.

3) Depends. Worth trying. I'd submit my app and send an email to the PD mentioning that the result will be out soon.

4) Depends. and don't focus on the chances.. no one knows.

5) Depends on the program, but overall these things make you appear to be active.

6) Some of them knew that since dental school, and some of them after grad. So it really depends if you like the specialty and you see yourself doing endo forever or not. Also, ask yourself: are you going to regret being an endodontist?

I called The PASS and told me the recommendation letter needs to be new including Dean’s letter

Try to have more attractive CV and personal statement. Try to organize them and include the most important stuff.
Also, if applicable, get new higher TOEFL score and ADAT, try to include on your PASS application any new research or work experience, update that section is possible.. might help..
Good luck!

Hello, does anyone know if Canadian applicants have the same chance as US applicants in getting into residency programs? I graduated from US dental school but I'm a Canadian practicing in Canada
If you graduated from a US school then you should have the same chance as all the other US applicants

Hello,

I will be applying this cycle and made an ADEA PASS account to look through what I will need to submit when it opens on May 10th.

I see under the "Supporting Information" section, there is a place to upload the CV under "Documents". However, there are also separate tabs for "Experiences" and "Achievements". Whatever I would put under these sections would already be on my CV. For previous applicants who have gotten into programs, did you report the same information under the "Experiences" and "Achievement" tabs that area already on your CV?

Thank you!
 
Hey guys I'm looking to apply this year and had a couple questions hopefully you all might have the answer to.

1. Does LOR have to come from faculty? I feel like i can get much better letters from colleagues that I have worked with

2. I know its competitive and I am wondering from a grade standpoint is a 3.75 (rank 24/120) good enough to be competitive?

Thanks!
 
Do DAT scores need to be officially submitted by the ADA for SLU, Indiana, and Tufts.. or can I email them to the endo program listed emails? Thanks
 
Is anyone else having trouble advancing past the first step of the application this morning? I click "Save & Continue" and nothing happens. Tried it on multiple browsers too.

The "Save & Continue" button on the reapplication page literally doesn't seem to link anywhere lol. The website is broken.

[Edit] This was if you started filling out the profile section of the app and wanted to continue. The ability for you to continue your application seems to be broken.

I just decided to start a new app instead. So heads up if anyone else is having the same trouble, just restart.

Are you able to add any programs? My portal looks like it still hasn't opened for the new cycle.
 
Do we have to submit our official NDBE sco res to the schools or PASS? I don't see a place for it anywhere on the application.
 
Sorry if this question has been asked before, but is there a list of programs that are more likely to accept new grads and a list that almost never accepts new grads? Thanks in advance!
 
Would you guys recommend submitting our applications before the Letter of Recommendations get in or wait till everything is complete and then submit?

No, there is no list. It varies every year. And it also depends on the new Program Director’s preferences.
 
My recommenders are telling me that the request they received is not asking for anything to be uploaded. They just have some drop down answers with an area for comments. Is this normal?

Yes, there is a series of questions and ranking that the recommender needs to answer. But there is also a box at the very end where a LOR can be copy pasted into. Only thing is that there is 3,600 character limit.

The images below is what one of my recommenders sent me last year of what their page looks like.

Do you submit application without LOR first, and when you get LORs, click the Update Submittion bottom?
 
Just submitted my Marquette Application today. This is the only program I am applying to. My stats are GPA 3.812 and rank 24/130. I have been running a private office solo in Wisconsin since graduation. My husband is running a practice that has been in his family for 3 generations and we just cannot relocate. How crazy am I ?

Do you know any of faculty at Marquette? If you know some people there, I would say you have a great shot. Otherwise, I would say your chances are as good as other candidates 🤷🏼‍♂️

For situations like this it helps to get to know the local faculty. If you’re not an awkward person try to get to know them and get on their good side. It may take a few years.
 
For those that submitted their apps to SLU and Tufts did you pay ADA to forward your DAT scores to them or did you just screenshot and send them to their respective admissions email?
 
For those who attended Canadian dental schools, do programs really require us to use the ECE transcript service? I figured that was only for non ADA-CODA certified institutions.
 
Can you submit the application before the LOR is entered?
Even if you submit without it first and update application after it is completed, is it valid?
Will the programs review your application without LORs?
 
How do you submit your ADAT score to ADEA PASS? I am on ADA Dentpin website but it only shows options for sending scores to each school.
