#IamADEA Is YOUR Story to Tell

The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) marks its Centennial year in 2023 by honoring its past, supporting and celebrating its members today and committing anew to the future of dental education. Founded in 1923 as the American Association of Dental Schools, ADEA is “The Voice of Dental Education” dedicated to preparing future-ready oral health professionals. With 100 years of achievement in developing better scholars, faculty and academic leaders in dental education, ADEA is bringing new thinking and innovation to the next century and beyond.

We want to celebrate our students, faculty and administrators in U.S. and Canadian dental schools and allied and advanced dental education programs and the many companies who support dental education and the future of oral health through our Centennial-focused version of the #IamADEA campaign. That means you!

Join us on social media, either with a short video or a photo of yourself and a quote discussing ADEA, dental education and the benefit of being associated with ADEA.
