The ADEA Access, Diversity and Inclusion (ADI) portfolio recently concluded its summer round of ADEA Holistic Review Workshops. These workshops assist dental institutions with addressing and reviewing admission policies, procedures and practices. Holistic review—a flexible, individualized applicant assessment tool—provides admissions committees a balanced means of considering candidates’ personal experiences, attributes and academic credentials, along with qualities and characteristics that would prove valuable in both dental school and the oral health profession.
