ADEA Aids Foreign-Trained Dentists in Preparing for U.S. Licensing

ADEA manages the application process for many international students hoping to study at American schools. In an article informing foreign-trained dentists about paths to licensure in the United States, U.S. News & World Report directed curious applicants to ADEA’s CAAPID® (Centralized Application for Advanced Placement for International Dentists) website. 

The application itself does not require National Board Dental Examination results, but many of the programs students apply to do require them to take the test. Additionally, ADEA CAAPID asks that students provide their Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) results.

ADEA processes around 2,200 ADEA CAAPID applications a year. Completing the ADEA CAAPID is an international student’s path to American dental schools and, ultimately, a U.S. dental license.
