#IamADEA Is YOUR Story to Tell

We believe the dental education community is worth celebrating and showcasing. That’s what the #IamADEA initiative and social media campaign is all about.

The students, faculty and administrators in U.S. and Canadian dental schools or allied and advanced dental education programs, along with the many companies dedicated to advancing dental education, are shaping the future of oral health.  We want to celebrate the contributions you make every day and elevate your voice.

What would you like to say about dental education or this incredible community? Join us on social media, either with a short video or a photo of yourself and a quote.
