Applicants must be in good standing in their fourth year of dental school or must have successfully graduated from dental school prior to applying.

The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency participates in the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) system for postgraduate dental specialty programs and in the National Matching Services dental match process.

When applying, all applicants must include their current curriculum vitae, personal statement, dental school transcripts, three letters of recommendation, a letter from your dental school dean and an official transcript from all undergraduate schools attended.

We encourage interested applicants to consider doing an externship in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Mayo Clinic to better understand how the residency is structured and to determine if it's a good match for their interests.
