  • Samuels Sinclair Dental Center Joseph S. Sinclair General Practice Residency Education Program

  • Applying for the Program

  • The program in advanced education in general practice residency is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. The commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. The Commission on Dental Accreditation can be contacted by phone at 312-440-4653 or by mail at 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60611.

    The commission has accredited the postdoctoral program in general practice residency; however, this education area is not one of the American Dental Association's (ADA) recognized dental specialty areas. Therefore dentists graduating from this program cannot announce that they are specialists, as recognized by the ADA.

    The GPR program participates in both the "PASS" and "Match" programs. Apply for PASS.
