WASHINGTON, DC--The 2008 ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools is available. The Official Guide has been published for more than 40 years and offers comprehensive and authoritative information on dental schools in North America.
"ADEA is proud to release the 46th edition of the Official Guide to Dental Schools and looks forward to assisting those interested in pursuing dental education," said ADEA President James Q. Swift, DDS.
The Official Guide is a resource for those interested in exploring dental education, advisors, and educators. The book offers information on how to choose the right dental school, the application procedure, financing, and an overview of the profession, including career and specialty options.
Individual profiles for all U.S. and Canadian dental schools have been updated for students entering dental school in fall 2009, along with at-a-glance tables with specific data on the admissions requirements and required academic preparation for and unique characteristics of each school.
The Official Guide is updated annually with assistance from the ADEA Division of Educational Pathways, formerly known as the Division of Application Services. ADEA DEP is the gateway to dental education and helps ensure the quality and diversity of the oral health care workforce.
Using the latest technology, offering the highest quality centralized application services, and through collaboration with others, the division facilitates the recruitment, admission, and retention of individuals into the dental education pipeline.
ADEA DEP creates community, advances best practices, and promotes ADEA's values by being an essential resource for prospective students, students in dental education programs, counselors, advisors, admissions officers, and dental educators.
Printed copies can be purchased for $35 each, or $29 apiece for orders of 10 copies or more. Online access to the Official Guide will be available later in the year.
