Starting your application

To create an ADEA AADSAS account, click “Create New Account” beneath the login information on the ADEA AADSAS homepage. You will be asked for a username, password, security question, DENTPIN, valid email address and your agreement to a release agreement to activate a new account and be assigned an ADEA AADSAS identification number. For security, do not share your password or account information with anyone.

You may only create one account per application cycle. Creating more than one account will lead to delays and difficulty in handling the receipt of your transcripts and letters of evaluation. If you create multiple accounts, your duplicate accounts will be terminated, along with any documents associated with those accounts.

You will need to complete the following sections of the application:

  1. Fee Assistance Program (optional)
  2. Applicant information
  3. Education
  4. Professional experience
  5. Personal statement
  6. Evaluators
  7. Release statements
  8. Dental school designations

You will need to submit the following documents:

  1. Official transcripts from every postsecondary institution attended.*
  2. Letters of evaluation.*

*Transcripts and letters of evaluation can be received before or after the application is submitted.

Dental schools may require supplemental information in addition to your complete ADEA AADSAS application. To ensure all the necessary requirements have been completed, be sure to review each school’s website, the supplemental table in the application and the school’s profile in the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools.

How do I reset my password?
The ADEA AADSAS staff do not have access to your password information. To retrieve your password, please click the “Forgot Your Password?” link under the login prompt, and an email will be sent to you prompting you to reset your login information. Please note that passwords and usernames are case sensitive.

When can I start my application?
The 2017 ADEA AADSAS application will open on June 1, 2016. Applicants should request all postsecondary transcripts as early as possible.

If I applied in 2016, can I apply as a reapplicant?
Yes, on the ADEA AADSAS homepage, select “Re-Applying to ADEA AADSAS?” to confirm your 2016 credentials to have information included in your 2017 application. Most of your application data can be carried over, including transcripts and coursework. However, letters of evaluation, updated transcripts, the personal essay and application fees must be resubmitted.
