Register for the Match

Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program for Positions Beginning in 2018


Before You Register

Requirements

You should review the Rules of the Match and the terms of the Applicant Agreement before registering. You will also need your DENTPINĀ®, which can be obtained from the ADA web site, in order to register.

Participating Programs

ORTHO, PERIO, PROS, ANES and Canadian GPR programs participate in Phase I of the Match. AEGD, US GPR, OMS and PED programs participate in Phase II of the Match. Most (but not all) programs of these types participate in the Match. Programs of other types do not participate in the Match.

Many (but not all) programs that participate in the Match also use the ADEA PASS central application service. Registration for the Match does not constitute an application to any of the programs that participate in the Match.

Fee

There is a fee of $90 USD to register for the Match. The registration fee is non-refundable, non-transferable and irrevocable.

The Match registration fee covers participation in both Phase I and Phase II of the Match. Applicants who register for Phase I but do not obtain a position in Phase I do not have to register again or pay an additional fee to participate in Phase II.

Timing

It is recommended that you register for the Match by October 1, 2017. You must be registered in order to submit your Rank Order List and be ranked by programs. The final deadline to register to participate in each Phase of the Match is:

For Phase I (ORTHO, PERIO, PROS, ANES and Canadian GPR):
November 16, 2017
For Phase II (AEGD, US GPR, OMS and PED):
January 11, 2018

Most programs submit their Rank Order Lists for the Match well before the Rank Order List deadline. Therefore, to ensure you are able to be ranked by programs, you should register well before the final dates listed above.

Register Online

You must register online using the shared ADEA PASS/Match Portal. NMS and ADEA have implemented this shared portal in order to provide a single access point for applicants who want to use the Match or PASS, or both.

After you complete the registration process, your information will be transmitted from the ADEA PASS/Match Portal to NMS within 24 hours. You should receive a registration confirmation email from NMS within 3 business days from the time you register.
