Georgia School of Orthodontics is currently accepting applications for our Orthodontic Residency Program Class of 2026 and our Malaysia Fellowship Program.
We are now certified to enroll F-1 nonimmigrant students. Please see the “International Residents” section below for additional requirements for applicants who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
The Program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics earned the status of “Approval without Reporting Requirements” from the Commission on Dental Accreditation in August 2019. The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. For more information regarding this process, you may contact the Commission on Dental Accreditation at (312) 440-4653 or at 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611.
Georgia School of Orthodontics participates in the ADEA’s Postdoctoral Application Support Service Program (“PASS”). This is a centralized application service that can be accessed via the ADEA’s website at http://adea.org/pass. All applications must be completed on the PASS platform by our application deadline of February 1, 2023. Application received after the deadline will not be processed.
Those applicants selected for interviews will be contacted shortly after the PASS cycle closes, with interview to be held in mid to late February.
Georgia School of Orthodontics is now offering a four-week clinical orthodontic fellowship for dentists based in Malaysia. The curriculum will be presented in a live lecture format, with pre-course online lectures, that will provide fellows with a thorough knowledge of clinical orthodontics and patient treatment. Applicants that register by February 28, 2023 will have a reduced course tuition of only $20,000. Applicants that register after February 28, 2023 will pay a course tuition of $25,000.
To apply, please complete the Malaysia Fellowship Application and upload it onto the School’s Online Application Portal, which can be accessed via the “Malaysia Fellowship” button at the top left of this page.
GSO established its Fellowship Programs in 2020 due to the combined effects of the pandemic, the desire to study remotely, and the overwhelming demand for its residency spots. The online non-accredited Fellowship Program serves as an optional precursor to its Orthodontic Residency Program, and runs from October 1, 2022 through March 31, 2023.
The Fellowship Program is delivered through the School’s state-of-the-art online portal. GSO has an online resident portal that delivers an interactive experience through filmed course lectures, video conferencing with live demonstrations, online testing, faculty and resident discussion boards, and much more. Participants will also be required to complete wire-bending exercises that will be mailed back for evaluation.
The Fellowship Program permits students to complete an intense orthodontic curriculum with a guaranteed pathway to residency. Successful completion of all Fellowship coursework, passage of the GSO Fellowship Exam, and exhibiting proper professionalism and merit throughout the course of the Program will lead to priority review and acceptance into the School’s Orthodontic Residency Program for the Fall of 2024. However, acceptance will be contingent upon meeting all of GSO’s application requirements for the Orthodontic Residency Program, including completing an application and submitting all of the required documentation. All applicants must demonstrate financial resources adequate to cover the cost of the tuition, program fees, and living expenses for all three years. Because of this, we strongly encourage Fellowship applicants interested in entering the School’s next residency class to review the requirements for admission into GSO’s Orthodontic Residency Program. Fellowship participants who do not meet all of these admission requirements will not be accepted into the residency program.
Whether you are a graduating dental student or a practicing dentist reeling from the effects of COVID, GSO welcomes you to apply now and begin the first step to your career in orthodontics.
