Special information from this dental school:

Send these materials directly to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry at the same time you send ADEA AADSAS materials:

Only complete applications to our DDS program will be reviewed. Interviews start in September and run through January. Candidates are encouraged to submit completed application earlier in the cycle to increase their chances of being granted an interview between September and January. A complete DDS application to the University of Minnesota includes the following:

  • ADEA AADSAS application.
  • UM School of Dentistry supplemental application; refer to our website for instructions on completing and submitting the application www.dentistry.umn.edu.  
  • Three letters of evaluation:
    • Two from science or math faculty or reaching assistant from who you tool a classroom course or lab that was not a research course or mentorship.
    • One from an employer volunteer supervisor. A letter from a dentist you shadowed counts as an employer or supervisor letter ONLY if the letter indicates that you worked or volunteered under this supervisor in a non-shadowing role as well. 
  • Official DAT scores sent through ADEA AADSAS are considered official. It is acceptable to send a copy of the unofficial DAT score report to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry for addition to the application file notes while you wait for your official scores to appear in your ADEA AADSAS application.
  • Official TOEFL scores for all non-native English speakers.

Note: Only complete applications to our DDS program will be reviewed. Interviews start in September, and run through January. Candidates are encouraged to submit completed applications earlier in the cycle to increase their chances of being granted an interview between September and January.
