We require 75 hours of exposure to the dental profession through shadowing experiences.
At least 40 hours of shadowing must be completed with a general dentist.
The AADSAS applications are paperless and therefore we are not able to add extra materials to the applications for review.
Sending additional documents will delay the processing and review of your application.
You will be notified should we require additional information.
