ADEA Snapshot of Dental Education, 2016–2017
The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) is committed to conducting research into contemporary and emerging issues that are likely to impact decisions in the dental education and policy-making communities. Each year, ADEA collects data on topics of particular interest to dental school deans, program directors,
faculty, students, residents and fellows.
The resulting ADEA Snapshot of Dental Education presents findings on discrete subject areas to help the ADEA membership and related stakeholders better understand the academic dental profession and its role in health and health care.
The information in this 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
