How to Apply

Pediatric Dentistry Residency

The Children's Mercy Pediatric Dentistry Program is sponsored by Children's Mercy in affiliation with the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. Each year, we utilize the PASS/MATCH system to match with either two or three candidates (alternate years) for positions in the program.

Our program participates in and only accepts applications through PASS/MATCH and is listed under Children's Mercy Hospital Kansas City, Mo. Please follow the information published on the ADEA/PASS website for the year of application.

Interviews provide the opportunity for candidates not only to meet our staff, but tour our excellent facilities and interact with current residents. Interviews are generally held during November and December each year.

For more information, please contact Toni Zaner, BA.
