ADEA recently released the annual data report and interactive charts for the U.S. Dental School Applicants and Enrollees, 2022 Entering Class. The data report provides a comprehensive view of the applicants and first-time, first-year enrollees in the 2022 U.S. predoctoral dental school entering class. 

The report analyzes data from ADEA AADSAS® (ADEA Associated American Dental Schools Application System) and TMDSAS (Texas Medical & Dental Schools Application Services). Users can also access trend data for applicants and first-time, first-year enrollees for 23 years from 2000−2022.

The routinely published, spreadsheet-style report and a series of interactive graphics analyzes trends for applicants and first-time, first-year enrollees, including characteristics such as gender, race and ethnicity, state of residence at the time of application, academic credentials (GPA and DAT score) and major field of study. 

The 2022 edition also includes an analysis of data for historically underrepresented race and ethnicity (HURE) applicants. ADEA members may find the 2021 HURE analysis in the ADEA U.S. Dental School Applicants and Enrollees, 2021 Entering Class and the corresponding 2019 analysis in the ADEA publication, Slow to Change: HURE Groups in Dental Education .

The data report and interactive graphics are available for free on the ADEA Data, Analysis and Research webpage. The interactive graphics can be accessed directly here.
