2014–15 Deans' Briefing Book


The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) is committed to conducting research into systemic and emerging issues that can impact decisions in the dental education and policy-making communities. Each year, ADEA collects data on topics of interest to deans, program directors, faculty, students, residents and fellows.

The ADEA Deans’ Briefing Book offers timely, relevant statistics and other content to inform the daily work at our Member Institutions. This book and its accompanying online resources are intended to provide deans of dental schools immediate access to findings on discrete subject areas, as both snapshots and comparisons over time, to help them and their stakeholders better understand the academic dental profession and its role in health and health care.

The information in this 16-page report is taken from data compiled by ADEA, the American Dental Association and other sources. Downloadable charts, tables and reports containing the latest data can be found on www.adea.org/data.
