Applicants are reviewed on a competitive basis, with successful candidates typically having a strong interview, positive letters of recommendation, a Pass on the National Board Examination and a multifaceted extracurricular background. The applicant's dental degree must be conferred prior to the July 1st start date.
Those qualified for admission will be invited to Nova Southeastern University for a personal interview and a psychomotor skills (bench) test. Further information will be provided to those invited to interview.
The AEGD program at Nova Southeastern University does accept qualified foreign trained dentists. The applicants must provide all of the same materials as above, must have passed part I and part 2 of the National Dental Board Examinations by the close of the application cycle, received a score of 80 or higher on the TOEFL (no more than two years old) if their native language is not English, and have a valid status in the USA.
After the application deadline, the admissions committee reviews all applications. Those candidates who qualify will be invited to interview. When the interviews have been completed, the program director will notify all candidates of their selections. Typically, applicants are informed within a few weeks after the interview.
