ADEA CAAPID Application Instructions

Criminal Background Check

ADEA CAAPID℠ provides a service to dental schools that wish to obtain a criminal background check on admitted students through Certiphi® Screening. Applicants can view schools that participate in the ADEA criminal background check by visiting the “Dental Schools Designation” section of the application or by contacting the dental schools.

Once accepted at a participating dental school, Certiphi® Screening will send an email to the preferred email address entered in the ADEA CAAPID℠ application. This email will provide access to a secure online form where the applicant provides basic identifying information and consent for this report to be obtained. Applicants can review the final report prior to its distribution.

Tip: The criminal background report will not be released to any party other than the dental schools requesting it. ADEA CAAPID℠ does not have access to this report.
