#IamADEA Is YOUR Story to Tell

Despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, dental educators persist and rise to the occasion to innovate and to educate the next generation of dental and allied dental professionals. Current students, residents and fellows press on to fulfill longstanding and newly re-envisioned dreams.

We commend you all for pressing forward through the adversity, and we want to celebrate the contributions you make every day.

The #IamADEA initiative and social media campaign shines a light on the tireless and triumphant efforts of our ADEA community.
