Dental—Degree Programs

Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degrees are accredited by the ADA's Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA). Programs take four years to complete with additional years for dental specialties. Over 50 dental programs in the United States exist, and admission is competitive. Most U.S. schools accept a single online application through the American Association of Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS). After completing the degree, students must pass National Board Dental Examinations (Part I and II) to practice in the U.S.
