ADEA CAAPID Application Instructions
What Is ADEA CAAPID?
The American Dental Education Association Centralized
Application for Advanced Placement for International Dentists (ADEA CAAPID) is
the centralized application service for foreign educated dental graduates who
wish to practice dentistry in the United States or Canada. ADEA CAAPID is the
place to research and apply to participating advanced standing dental programs
without having to go through traditional D.D.S./D.M.D. programs. Save time and
energy by completing one application for multiple programs. ADEA CAAPID is
open from March through February each year.
ADEA CAAPID applicants can locate programs by state or
program name before applying by using the ADEA CAAPID Directory. To access the ADEA
CAAPID Directory, please click here.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to read, understand and
follow all ADEA CAAPID and program-specific instructions.
