Dental Residency: How to Apply

Enrolled applicants must hold a degree from a dental school accredited by the ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation (United States, Puerto Rico or Canada) and be either a US citizen or permanent resident.

Applications are through the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) of the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) and applicants will be accepted through the National Matching Services.

All offers of appointment to CHA sponsored training programs are specifically conditioned upon a criminal background investigation and a negative drug test (uses workplace standards, including chain of custody, marijuana is excluded from the testing). Background checks will be carried out by an agency on behalf of CHA. By signing the background check release form, prospective trainees are consenting to a background investigation. The drug test must be completed within 10 days of matching (all costs are covered by CHA). It will be conducted at CHA Occupational Health for those residents within 20 miles of Boston. All others will be tested at an outside facility arranged by CHA.
