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.
