You are required to provide two letters of recommendation as part of your application. Your evaluators should be professional sources who can provide an unbiased critical assessment of your abilities, skills, strengths, and weaknesses and comment on your qualifications for graduate dental study. Examples of professional and academic sources are professors and clinical instructors. Evaluations should not be requested from a nonacademic source unless you have extensive work experience with that individual and/or you have been away from academic institutions for some time.
On the Department Information page, provide the names and email addresses of your evaluators in the “Recommendations” section. Each recommender will receive an email with a link to an online evaluation form. Do not upload letters of recommendation to the online application.
Your personal statement should describe in your own words the experiences that have shaped your interest in the M.S.D. program. Outline your immediate and long-term professional goals. If you include any statements or quotes that are not your original thoughts, you must cite your sources. All personal statements are submitted to Turnitin to ensure originality and proper citation.
On the Department Information page, upload your personal statement in the “Personal Statement” section.
A CV is a type of resume, most often used in academia, that provides a summary of personal accomplishments, goals, professional achievements, employment history, research completed, and any research publications.
