Q: How do I update my email/mail address?
A: To change your e-mail address, log-in to
your ADEA AADSAS application. Go to "My Profile" in the upper left
corner of your application checklist. Select "Account Information"
and change your information.
You can update your regular mailing address and other contact
information in the Biographic Information section of the
application as often as needed while the ADEA AADSAS application is
open, June 3, 2013 through February, 2014. You can do this by:
- Logging into your ADEA AADSAS application
- Going to the Biographic Information section
- Entering your revised email or mailing address
- Clicking "Save" at the bottom of the page
Your changes will be automatically saved and transmitted to ADEA
AADSAS. The dental schools will receive your updated information in
the next mailing that occurs after you have made changes.
It is very important to keep your email address, mailing address,
and other contact information (including phone numbers) current to
assure that ADEA AADSAS and the dental schools can contact you.
Changes to your contact information after February 15, 2014
should be sent directly to the dental schools.

Q: Why haven't I received emails from ADEA AADSAS or my
designated dental schools?
A: ADEA AADSAS will email you about missing or
problematic application materials and important updates only. To
ensure timely receipt of any possible communications, it is
strongly recommended that you consistently monitor the status of
your ADEA AADSAS application by logging into your account. Make
sure your email address provided in the ADEA AADSAS application is
Some email messages from ADEA AADSAS are sent to multiple
applicants, which makes some email systems identify ADEA AADSAS
messages as "spam" or junk email. Some email providers use filters
to prevent users from receiving spam. Email filters may interpret
an email from ADEA AADSAS or a dental school as spam and
automatically delete a message to you about the status of your ADEA
AADSAS application. To avoid missing important ADEA AADSAS emails,
turn the "spam" or "junk" email filters off during the application
cycle. If your email provider does not allow you to turn the filter
off, you may have to access to a "junk mail file" that archives all
messages identified as sent to multiple addresses. Periodically
check your spam/junk email file for ADEA AADSAS or dental school
related messages. If you do not currently have an email address or
are unable to turn off the spam/junk filters described, please
establish a new email account.
These are a few free email services for you to consider. (This
is not a comprehensive list and does not reflect an endorsement or
guarantee of reliable service.)
Be sure to keep your email address current during the ADEA
AADSAS application cycle. To do so:
- Log-in to your ADEA AADSAS application
- Go to the Biographic Information section
- Enter your revised email or mailing address
- Click "Save" at the bottom of the page
