ADEA Sections

A Section is a group of ADEA members with similar professional specialties who come together to exchange ideas and keep themselves informed about current and discrete developments in the field of dental education. The activities of a Section are planned by its members and elected officers and provide a clear indication of the diverse interests and needs of its members.

Through participation in a Section, you can help design what, in essence, are small professional organizations within the association. Only ADEA members can belong to a Section, though each member can belong to as many Sections as desired.

You can join a Section by logging in to your ADEA membership profile. Once you have joined a Section, you are automatically opted in to the respective Listserv for the group. You will remain on the Listserv until you have opted out or until your ADEA membership expires. Learn more about using ADEA’s Listserv lists.
