The Reserved Admission Program for the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the UMKC School of Dentistry enables highly motivated, ambitious, talented Missouri and Kansas residents to pursue their dream of becoming a dentist. Admission to the UMKC School of Dentistry's DDS program is very competitive. Approximately 1,000 candidates apply every year for a limited number of seats. Reserved Admission Program students will have a reserved seat in a future UMKC DDS Program class.

As a Reserved Admission Program student, you can apply for admission directly to the School of Dentistry without going through the national computerized application service required of traditional DDS candidates. To be eligible for Reserved Admission you must have completed four semesters of college credit while being continuously enrolled in full-time course loads (a minimum of 15-18 credit hours per semester). Your science grade point average must be at least 3.60 in a degree-seeking program including prerequisite courses.
