Match Day: Recommendations for Success

Learning Objectives:  

After listening to this interview, dental students should:

  1. Understand what the Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program (i.e, the "Match") is, and what it could mean to them and their future dental specialty.
  2. Know the process of applying and participating in Dental Match Day.

This interview is designed to familiarize dental students with the concept and processes associated with the Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program. As explained by Matthew Ronconi (UCLA '12), the "Match" is a national program administered by National Matching Services, Inc. to place dental students within residencies to begin training in their selected area of expertise.  The Match is the mechanism used by some postdoctoral dental education programs to determine the final placement of applicants into positions. The Match provides an orderly process to help applicants obtain positions in the first year of training in postdoctoral programs of their choice, and to help programs obtain applicants of their choice.

*Matthew Ronconi is a Contributing Editor to the publications of the American Student Dental Association (ASDA), serves on the ASDA National Council on Licensure, and is a 4th-year dental student at UCLA.
