Where do I send
documentation of my experience hours?
ADEA AADSAS does not collect any documentation for the experience sections. If
any schools require documentation, it should be submitted directly to them.
What is my “title”? Who is
If you did not have an official title, enter the type of activity you did—for
example, “Dentist Shadow” or “Nurse Shadow,” etc. The organization is the
location where or for whom the work took place, and the supervisor is the
person who was responsible for you or was in charge of your activity.
I’ve begun my experience,
but plan on accumulating more hours before dental school begins. Can I include
In the experience sections, you may only document (in hours/weeks, etc.) the
time already completed. Once you submit your application, you may not update
your hours. However, in the text box under “duties,” you may clarify your
expected time commitment and send any updates directly to the schools to which
you are applying.
Where can I report my
publications or presentations?
There is no place on the application specifically for publications, as the
dental schools have not requested that this be documented in ADEA AADSAS. If
you wish to include this type of activity, you may be able to list them in the
“Achievements” section of the application, if appropriate.
I have plans to add
experiences after I submit my application. Can I add new experiences after I
No, experiences cannot be added after you submit the application. If you wish
to update this information after submission, you may send updated information
directly to the school(s) to which you are applying.
