The 2024 ADEA GoDental Recruitment Event is a FREE, in-person event that offers individuals interested in dentistry the chance to meet admissions officers from U.S. and Canadian dental schools and attend interactive presentations to help them be successful applicants.
This dynamic event is geared toward high school, community college, and four-year college students and others interested in dentistry.
Destination Dental School (DDS) is an eight-week, summer pathway program for individuals interested in a career in dentistry. This program prepares students who have been historically underrepresented in the profession to successfully apply and be accepted to dental school. DDS fellows participate in seven weeks of virtual Saturday meetings, and then visit the UB School of Dental Medicine for a one-week, in-person, intensive training program.
Through the DDS program, Fellows learn about the dental profession and dental school application and financing strategies, study for the Dental Admissions Test (DAT), participate in hands-on activities, conduct research projects, and network with faculty mentors, dental students and community leaders. DDS fellows receive Dental Admissions Test (DAT) study resources, reimbursement for one DAT, a waived application fee to UB SDM, and a stipend to cover the costs of travel and lodging for the in-person component. Please follow the link below to visit the Destination Dental School Website to learn more.
The mentorship program here at UBSDM serves as a way for pre-dental students to have a direct connection with a current dental student! The goal of the UBSDM mentorship program is to guide future pre-dental students through their journey to dental school (hopefully to UBSDM) and act as an additional resource they can utilize for any questions they have along the way. Each mentor is required to reach out to their mentee at least once every semester, to ensure that there is an open line of communication between the two.
Are you interested in having a dental school mentor from UBSDM? Do you have questions about applying to dental school, taking the DAT, undergraduate course requirements, interviewing, writing the personal statement, and/or life as a dental student?
Please fill out this form to be paired with a current dental student who can help guide you along the pre-dental process:
