The application deadline is December 31st of the year prior to program admission. All information including recommendation evaluations and National Board scores should be submitted through PASS.


Some applicants will be chosen for admission interviews, which are required before acceptance.

Attending an AEGD program in New York does not necessarily allow students without a DDS/DMD from an ADA accredited program to practice dentistry in the US.  For more information about licensing issues, please contact the responsible State Department of Education or the American Dental Association
