    • Thank you for your interest in the Advanced Education Programs of the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. 2
    • Advanced Education Programs For specific program descriptions regarding the graduate dental certificate programs, please refer to Chair, Advanced Education Committee: Jeffrey C. Nickel, DMD, MSC, PhD http://dentistry.umkc.edu/bec_student/AdvEdPrograms.htm. The School of Dentistry offers advanced education curricula leading to graduate certificates in four clinical dental specialty areas (endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, and periodontics), certificates in general dentistry, and master of science degrees in either oral biology or dental hygiene education. The School participates in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program through the Department of Oral Biology. Oral Biology's research focus areas are: Biomaterials/Bioengineering of Biological Tissues & Replacements, Mineralized Tissue Biology and Translational and Clinical Research. Dental Graduate Certificate Programs A graduate certificate program is offered in each of the following areas: • Advanced Education in General Dentistry • Endodontics • Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery • Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics • Periodontics Applicants applying to the graduate certificate program in graduate programs within Oral Biology or Dental Hygiene should not use this application and should contact those programs directly regarding their separate online application. General Nature of Programs Each certificate program curriculum is designed to prepare the student for specialty practice and to help the student meet the educational training requirements for examination by the appropriate American dental specialty board. All programs begin with the summer term (the first week of July) except for graduate Dental Hygiene education, which begins with the fall semester. Programs vary in length from 12 to 72 months. 3
    • Application Deadlines Application deadline dates for graduate dental certificate programs are as follows: Advanced Education in General Dentistry October 1 Endodontics August 15 The deadline for receipt of applications at the school is one year before anticipated enrollment in the program. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (International applicants must have a U.S. or August 15 Canadian D.D.S. or D.M.D. from an accredited CDA or CDAC program to be considered for advanced education programs, except for the Orthodontics programs in Oral Biology. International applicants must use the UMKC International Application for September 5 Admission. These forms are available from the Office of Student Programs of the School of Dentistry or at Periodontics August 15 www.umkc.edu/dentistry/assets/forms/advancededucation.htm.) Application Information for Candidates Applying to Advanced Education in General Dentistry, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, and Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics The graduate dental certificate programs in advanced education in general dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics REQUIRE submission of application materials through the Postdoctoral Application Support Services (PASS). (Submission of application materials through the below UMKC School of Dentistry advanced education application may be supported in special circumstances only for the advanced education in general dentistry program.) All application materials should be sent to PASS and UMKC should be listed as a designation. An 4
    • applicant copy of the PASS application should not be sent directly to UMKC. Be aware that approximately three weeks is required by the service to process PASS applications and deliver them to the designated programs. The length of this processing period should be considered by the candidate in order to meet relevant application deadlines. The graduate certificate programs in oral and maxillofacial surgery AND orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics participate in the National Matching Services (NMS / MATCH) process. For the 2011 admissions cycle PASS and NMS have partnered for the first time to provide a single access point for students applying to both services. Candidates apply through ADEA PASS and are placed by NMS. The NMS requires a completed Applicant Agreement and Rank Order List form to be submitted by the established deadline dates. There are two phases of the MATCH process, each with its deadline date for receipt of Rank Order List forms from applicants. The Phase I deadline (typically toward the middle of November) is for applicants to the orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics program. The Phase II deadline (typically in the middle of January) is for those applying for admission to the oral and maxillofacial surgery. More information may be learned about the PASS and NMS services at the links below: • ADEA PASS – www.adea.org • NMS (MATCH) – www.natmatch.com Orthodontic applicants must self-report GRE scores on the PASS application. Official GRE scores should be sent to UMKC School of Dentistry. The GRE code is 6872. Once applications are received at the UMKC School of Dentistry candidates will be notified to submit an additional UMKC application fee. The UMKC application fee is $45 if you mail a check or $35 if you submit the UMKC application and payment online (http://www.umkc.edu/admissions/umkc-graduate-professional.asp ). Checks should be made payable to UMKC. Undergraduate transcripts and official national board scores will be requested upon acceptance into the program. General questions concerning advanced education programs should be directed to the chairman of the Advanced Education Committee at the mailing address above or at (816) 235-6322. However, specific questions regarding any advanced education program should be directed to the pertinent program director. Graduate program directors along with their telephone numbers are identified in a subsequent section. Application Information for Candidates Applying to the Endodontics and Periodontics Programs 5

However, specific questions regarding any advanced education program should be directed to the pertinent program director. Graduate program directors along with their telephone numbers are identified in a subsequent section. Requirements and Procedures for Admission 6
    • Admission to a graduate dental certificate program is competitive. Primary focus is on the applicant's academic record while in dental school, including national board scores. Emphasis is also placed on information gathered from letters of evaluation and curriculum vitae (such as quality of professional practice experience, continuing education experience, research activities, leadership and involvement and participation in professional societies and community service). Another fundamental source of information is supplied by a personal on-site interview that is required of most programs and is by invitation. Applicants applying to a graduate dental certificate program must hold a D.D.S. degree or equivalent from a program accredited either by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CDA) or the Canadian Dental Accrediting Commission (CDAC). Admission The Advanced Education Committee (AEC) serves as the admission review board for each of the graduate dental certificate programs. Each program has its own admission review board. At a minimum, the admission review board consists of the respective program director and at least two other full-time faculty members. Each program's admission review board submits its recommendations for acceptance to the AEC for consideration. Recommendations for acceptance include those identified as prime candidates (equal in number to the number of available residencies in the program) and those who serve as "alternates." Acceptance or denial of each recommended candidate is made by the AEC. 7
    • Financial Assistance Eligible advanced education students (i.e., those who have earned a D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree from a Commission on Dental Accreditation or Canadian Dental Accrediting Commission accredited program or who hold valid licenses to practice dentistry in one or more states of the United States) in the graduate certificate program of endodontics, general dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, and periodontics receive an annual financial assistance based on patient treatment fees. Eligible graduate students in general dentistry, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, periodontics and endodontics, participate in an incentive-based clinical income sharing program; 33 percent of the net fees collected for clinical treatment provided by a resident in one of these programs will be paid to the student. Net collected clinical fees are defined as gross clinical fees collected less scheduled laboratory fees incurred as a part of the treatment procedures and less any waivers granted (except those authorized for payment to the resident by the assistant dean for clinical programs). Financial aid for advanced education students is also available in the form of a limited number of Chancellor's Non- Resident Awards or graduate research assistantships. The Chancellor's Non-Resident Award provides for the non- resident tuition only (i.e., the difference between Missouri resident and nonresident fees), while the graduate research assistantship includes a stipend plus an award equivalent to the basic education fees (at regular graduate student fee rate and not at the graduate dental student fee rate) for 6 hours of graduate credit for both fall and spring semesters. Both categories of awards are made on a competitive basis, with quality of academic record as a major criterion. History of research experience or potential for research in the graduate program also serves to identify candidates for the graduate research assistantship. Other forms of financial aid may be available from federal loan programs (depending on whether or not lending limits have been reached) or from other funding agencies.
