Be Inspired, Empower Tomorrow Self-reflection.

Embracing our purpose. Finding our footing among the rapidly evolving landscape exploding with AI and expanding technologies. Applying creative tools, new perspectives and innovative approaches to best prepare students for the future of collaborative practice. This new century for dental education is alive with opportunity, fresh energy and endless potential. The time is now to Be Inspired, Empower Tomorrow!

As members of ADEA, we must remember the tremendous impact of our work and all that our individual talents, unique experiences, mentorship and compassion offer to this community. We must continue to seek out and say yes to the opportunities in front of us―whether volunteering for a leadership position, voicing unspoken concerns or unconventional ideas, or recognizing a colleague for a significant contribution. We must model and cultivate moral courage and ensure that our students, residents and fellows carry this with them throughout their careers. We must create the lasting change we want to see in the future.

The challenges are many and we must continue to respond with new thinking. From recruitment and retention challenges to ethical disputes, from addressing institutional climate to the climate crisis, our institutions must respond with honest recognition and imagination. Together, we can illuminate new paths, create an authentic, empowered culture, and solve the greatest challenges facing oral health and dental education today, and tomorrow.

Join us for Be Inspired, Empower Tomorrow―the 2025 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition―on March 8-11 in beautiful National Harbor, MD, just minutes from the nation’s capital. Be Inspired by colleagues and expand your perspective as we Empower Tomorrow through four days of game changing moments with leading experts from inside and outside of academic dentistry and a bustling exhibit hall featuring the latest technologies, oral health partners and solutions providers.
