2021 ADEA Call for Reviewers

The best way to understand the peer-review process is to become a volunteer reviewer. Serving as a reviewer provides valuable insight into the proposal process and an understanding of what separates successful proposals from those not chosen for programming at the 2021 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.

In addition, reviewers are exposed to the latest and best ideas emerging in dental education.

All dental, advanced and allied dental faculty and students are encouraged to volunteer.
