Letters of Recommendation

letters of recommendationThe Committee on Dental Recruitment and Admissions strongly prefers to receive a recommendation package from the applicant’s institutional pre-professional committee and a letter from a general or specialized dentist documenting at least 100 shadowing hours.

If no such committee is available, letters of recommendation from one science professor may be substituted. There are no substitutions for the letter of recommendation from a general or specialized dentist. 

Letters of Recommendation must be included as part of the application materials submitted to AADSAS. Letters must be on official letterhead and bear the recommender's signature. The Office of Admissions will not accept any letters of recommendation sent directly. 

Currently AADSAS allows four letters of recommendation, so please ensure that the required letters are included in your application packet.
