The University of Mississippi Medical Center and its School of Dentistry (SOD) welcome applications from those interested in a career as a dentist.
The authority to select applicants for admission to the SOD is vested in the Admissions Committee and the Dean of the SOD. This committee is appointed by the Dean of the SOD and includes both clinical and basic science faculty, as well as representatives of the dental private practice. For further details, see Applicant Evaluation and Decisions.
More information about becoming a dentist can be found at the American Dental Association (ADA) website in Education/Careers and at the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) website in Information for Prospective Students.
The UMMC School of Dentistry is now a participant of the ADEA Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS). Applicants can apply at https://portal.aadsasweb.org/.
If you have questions, contact ADEA AADSAS customer service.
It is not necessary that an applicant complete the entire application at once. The applicant may save the application and work on it over a period of time. Once it is submitted however, only minor changes can be made online. Check with AADSAS to determine what information can be edited after submission of the application. Upon verification of an applicant’s primary application, the applicant will be provided with a link to complete the UMMC School of Dentistry’s supplemental application. The supplemental application fee is $50.
Application timetable (no exceptions to deadlines)
It is the applicant's responsibility to read, understand, and follow all ADEA AADSAS and school-specific instructions.
Do not send any materials directly to the School of Dentistry unless specifically requested to do so.
