Application Links to Programs in Dental and Allied Education
The ADEA Division of Dental Education Pathways serves as the gateway to dental education. We are an essential resource for predental students, students in dental education programs, counselors, advisors, admissions officers, and dental educators.
ADEA directs four centralized application services:
, the Associated American Dental Schools Application Services, for students pursuing a doctorate (D.D.S. or D.M.D.) in dentistry.
, an application service for advanced placement predoctoral programs for dentists who have degrees earned outside the United States or Canada.
, the Postdoctoral Application Support Service for students pursuing advanced postdoctoral dental education.
, the centralized application service for dental hygiene programs.
More than 14,000 students and 500 dental education institutions annually rely on ADEA to provide uniform information about applicants in a standardized format.
ADEA membership is not a requirement to apply through ADEA's application services. However, if you are a current student at an ADEA member institution, you do qualify for a FREE ADEA membership.
