Starting your application

New Applicants

To create an ADEA AADSAS account, click “Create New Account” beneath the login information on the ADEA AADSAS homepage. You will be asked for a username, password, security question, DENTPIN, valid email address and your agreement to a release agreement to activate a new account and be assigned an ADEA AADSAS identification number. For security, do not share your password or account information with anyone.

You may only create one account per application cycle. Creating more than one account will lead to delays and difficulty in handling the receipt of your transcripts and letters of evaluation. If you create multiple accounts, your duplicate accounts will be terminated, along with any documents associated with those accounts.

Applicants Who Previously Applied to ADEA AADSAS

Applicants who created an ADEA AADSAS account in the previous two application cycles (2017–2018 cycle) and are applying for the current (2018–2019) admissions cycle are eligible to have some of their application carried forward as a reapplicant.

To reapply to ADEA AADSAS, applicants should not create a new account and should instead enter in the email address and password for the account used in the previous application cycle. Applicants will then be prompted to select between beginning a new application or using information provided in the previous cycle. If opting to reuse information from the previous cycle, applicants can select which pieces of information they wish to carry forward.

  • Application sections that can be carried forward include all data in Personal Information; Academic History information, including previously attended colleges, universities and dental schools and any electronic foreign transcript evaluations received; and data in Supporting Information.
  • Applicants will be informed by email when the process of carrying the information forward to the current application is complete. This process could take a few hours.
  • Please allow up to two business days for previously received Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) and World Education Services (WES) foreign transcript evaluations to show as received on the new application.
  • Personal statements, letters of evaluation and program materials cannot be brought forward and must be resubmitted for the 2019 cycle. A review of all information being carried forward is required, and applicants may update this information.

Dental schools may require supplemental information in addition to your complete ADEA AADSAS application. To ensure all the necessary requirements have been completed, be sure to review each school’s website, the supplemental table in the application and the school’s profile in the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools.

  • Safari: Safari is the default internet browser for Apple products. The ADEA AADSAS application is designed to support the Safari browser. However, if you encounter any difficulty with certain application features with Safari and have ensured you are using the most up-to-date version, we advise switching to the Firefox or Chrome browser.
  • Internet Explorer: ADEA AADSAS was originally designed to be compatible with Internet Explorer, however Microsoft, the maker of Internet Explorer, has decided to discontinue the Internet Explorer product. As a result, this browser is quickly becoming obsolete and you may have difficulty properly accessing the ADEA AADSAS application functions using even the most up-to-date version of this browser. If you are using Internet Explorer, we strongly advise switching to another browser to complete the ADEA AADSAS application.

Other web browsers: The ADEA AADSAS application is not designed to be compatible with web browsers which are not Firefox, Chrome, Safari, or IE.
