Starting your application

To create an ADEA AADSAS account, click “Create New Account” beneath the login information on the ADEA AADSAS homepage. You will be asked for a username, password, security question, DENTPIN, valid email address and your agreement to a release agreement to activate a new account and be assigned an ADEA AADSAS identification number. For security, do not share your password or account information with anyone.

You may only create one account per application cycle. Creating more than one account will lead to delays and difficulty in handling the receipt of your transcripts and letters of evaluation. If you create multiple accounts, your duplicate accounts will be terminated, along with any documents associated with those accounts.

Reapplicants to the 2018 ADEA AADSAS cycle will be required to complete a new application. No information from the previous application will be available. It is recommended that all potential reapplicants print a copy of their 2017 application in preparation for the 2018 cycle. Applicants will not be able to access their 2017 applications after May 1, 2017.

  1. Fee Assistance Program (optional),
  2. Add Programs, Submit Application and Check Status tabs,
  3. Personal Information,
  4. Academic History,
  5. Supporting Information, and
  6. Program Materials.

You will need to submit the following documents:

  2. Letters of evaluation.*

*Transcripts and letters of evaluation can be received before or after the application is submitted.

Dental schools may require supplemental information in addition to your complete ADEA AADSAS application. To ensure all the necessary requirements have been completed, be sure to review each school’s website, the supplemental table in the application and the school’s profile in the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools.
