Providing an incorrect email address will result in you not receiving important messages from ADEA AADSAS and/or the dental schools.

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 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 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.
