The shift from an in-person event to a virtual conference provides the ADEA Council of Deans an opportunity to rethink the meeting from a point-in-time moment to an extended conversation about the future of dental education. This will be done through three half-day sessions over a three-week period.

Conference sessions have been be informed by questions and issues identified by the ADEA Council of Deans during Townhall Meetings this summer. The Deans’ Conference is a new way to learn from and support each other, and to make the most of the disruptions that have forced us to work differently.

Please note that the Deans' Conference is by invitation only.
