The ADEAGies Foundation/American Association of Dental Research (AADR) Academic Dental Careers Fellowship Program (ADEAGies/AADR ADCFP) provides dental students attending all North American dental schools with the opportunity to experience firsthand the benefits and rewards of teaching. The ADEAGies/AADR ADCFP encourages and prepares students to make informed choices about dental careers. In addition, the ADEAGies/AADR ADCFP shows dental school faculty how to function as academic career mentors for ADCFP Fellows and other students.
