Advanced Education in General Dentistry

AEGD Seminole bannerSeminole, FL – University Partnership Center

This 12-month Advanced Education Program is designed to provide advanced clinical and didactic training in disciplines of general dentistry beyond the training received in dental school.

The program is located in a facility at St. Petersburg College in Seminole, Florida that houses 17 operatories and is designed to model the private practice setting. This facility is a satellite clinic for the College of Dentistry. All the clinical disciplines in dentistry are covered. Patient treatment is frequently complex and challenging, with multiple opportunities for experience in dental implants, periodontal surgery, advanced prosthetics, oral surgery, orthodontics, and sedation.

The faculty, which includes specialists from all the dental disciplines and general dentists, provide continuous coverage in the clinic. Seminars, literature reviews, case presentations, and treatment planning seminars are part of the educational program. Practice management is an integral part of the program.

A stipend is available. No tuition is required.

To be eligible for admission, applicants must graduate from an American Dental Association (ADA) or Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC) accredited Dental School.

The AEGD-Seminole Program is NOT designed to prepare Internationally-Educated Dentists to practice dentistry in the U.S.

If you are an Internationally-Educated Dentist interested in becoming licensed to practice dentistry in the U.S. please check out our Internationally-Educated Dentist Programs.

All international students must secure an F1 visa prior to matriculation on July 1.

Application Process

Thursday, October 1, 2020 is the deadline to apply to this program.

We strongly encourage all applicants to have complete applications on file with PASS and UFCD prior to the deadline.

1. Apply to PASS

All program applicants must apply through PASS (Postdoctoral Application Support Service), which is sponsored by the American Association of Dental Schools (www.adea.org⤷). PASS is an application clearinghouse that provides uniform information to participating programs while relieving applicants of the burden of completing multiple individual applications. The PASS website opens for application in late spring/early summer. Participation in the PASS program is mandatory. We advise applicants to apply as early as possible.

    Please note: an Institution Evaluation Form (IEF) does not equal a PEF

All supplemental application materials (such as NBDE) should be included with the PASS application when possible.  Application materials that are not included with your PASS application should be emailed to GradAdmissions@dental.ufl.edu.  At this time, no materials should be mailed to our office.
