The ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools consists of an online directory of dental schools (the ADEA Dental School Explorer) updated yearly and a PDF publication (ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools 2021-2022 for Students Entering in Fall 2022 or Fall 2023) updated every two years (the next update will be released in 2023). Even if you’re not applying to dental school in the next year, the information can help you get an early start on your research and preparation..

The online ADEA Dental School Explorer provides data on U.S. and Canadian dental schools. The information—which can be viewed on your computer, tablet or smart phone—is searchable by key word and filterable by institution type, predental program and location (state, territory or province). The online tool also allows you to make bookmarks and notes, compare profiles from up to four schools and add your own deadlines to an interactive calendar.

Each dental school profile includes:

  • Curriculum highlights.
  • A table of required and recommended courses.
  • Information on community college and advanced placement coursework accepted.
  • Dental shadowing requirements/recommendations.
  • Admission cycle timetables.
  • Fee, deposit and cost-of-attendance schedules.
  • 2020 applicant and entering-class data, including demographic information, mean DAT scores and mean GPAs.
  • International Dental Graduate programs.
  • A listing of available predental programs.

  • The PDF book (updated every two years) contains a wealth of information, including:

  • An introduction to the dental profession and what you can expect as a dental student.
  • A chapter on the importance of access, diversity and inclusion.
  • Tips on navigating the application process.
  • A section on the holistic (whole file) admissions process.
