To provide content to your profile, log into the ADEA PASS Program Search Engine
at any time to make changes. As information is subject to change
without notice, program representatives are responsible for providing
up-to-date and accurate information on the program’s profile. All
applicants will be advised to contact the programs directly
if they have further questions or find discrepancies. ADEA PASS is
available for Search Engine profile support, but will not be held
responsible for inaccurate information. Additionally, information on
the Search Engine profile is not tied to the application and will not
prohibit ineligible applicants from applying.
Please contact Yolanda Jones at JonesY@adea.org or Emily Rhineberger at RhinebergerE@adea.org for assistance.
Program directors can register their advanced dental education programs with ADEA PASS by completing the new ADEA PASS Program Participation Form. There is no cost for programs to participate in ADEA PASS.
To be eligible to participate in ADEA PASS, advanced dental education programs must be accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation or be offered by a dental school that is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation.
If your program is inactive, please complete and submit this form to Yolanda Jones at JonesY@adea.org.
Grading Resource Guide
The Grading Resource Guide is a compilation of grading practices and policies from the nine U.S. dental schools that use a pass/fail scoring model. It is intended to be used by advanced dental education program directors as an aid in reviewing applicants from these schools. The Guide is updated as of May 2015.
