ADEA Resources, Projects, and Initiatives
American Dental Education Association

• ADEA Communities of Interest (through the ADEA Service Center on www.adea.org)

• Faculty Recruitment and Retention Compendium (in the publications catalog) • ADEA Benchmarking Toolkit • ADEA Trends in Dental Education (under “Publications” on www.adea.org)
• Academic Dental Careers Fellowship Program • ExploreHealthCareers.org (www.explorehealthcareers.org)

American Dental Education Association

Explorehealthcareers.org, recently acquired by ADEA, is a free, multidisciplinary, interactive health careers website designed to address workforce shortages in the health professions. The professions of dental hygiene, assisting, and lab technology are featured on the site. This ADEA website will provide us with the opportunity to address recruitment of allied dental students, with an emphasis on diversity.

Extensive information about these careers is provided; plus DH and DA are featured as 2 of the top 10 fastest growing careers. The mission of EHC is to help solve two urgent problems in American health care: the under-representation of minorities in the workforce, and the lack of health professionals in medically underserved communities.

ADEA Supports the Dental Education Community When Disaster Strikes
American Dental Education Association



ADEAassist was created as a way for ADEA to help schools and programs affected by Hurricane Katrina. In anticipation of Hurricanes Rita and Wilma, ADEAassist advised schools and programs in the affected areas of opportunities for ADEA to help in the event of damage or interruption.
ADEAassist capitalized a permanent fund to aid any ADEA Institutional Member who may be impacted by disaster.





Licensure Initiatives
American Dental Education Association





All ADEA initiatives related to national licensure include dental hygiene licensure. Although the wording may at times refer to “dental licensure,” it is well understood by the practicing, licensing, education, and other communities to include licensure of dentists and dental hygienists.

ADEA Supports the ADEA Council of Allied Dental Program Directors Through Advocacy
American Dental Education Association

ADEA is committed to pursuing its vision for the future of oral health care on Capitol Hill. During the 109th Congress our advocacy efforts led to:
Passage

of the National Institute of Health reauthorization with provisions offered by ADEA. of a stopgap measure to avert a federal funding crisis in the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. of the Ryan White CARE Act reauthorization including a new provision that designates oral health as a “core medical service.”

Passage

Passage

ADEA Supports the ADEA Council of Allied Dental Program Directors Through Advocacy Association American Dental Education



Oral health’s new designation as a “core medical service” ensures that more Ryan White CARE Act funding can be targeted to oral health care services. Academic dental institutions have been reimbursed more than $111 million from the CARE Act’s Dental Reimbursement Program for HIV/AIDS oral health care provided to patients. Despite the plans of the administration and some in Congress to discontinue the Community-based Dental Partnership Program, ADEA was able to preserve the program with no changes.

JDE Online bonus: Access to 1,000+ journals
American Dental Education Association 

The JDE is online through HighWire Press. HighWire hosts more than 1,000 other journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), and the Journal of Dental Research (JDR). A significant bonus to being an ADEA Member and JDE reader is what’s known as “Inter-Journal Toll-Free Citation Linking.” You may find an article in the JDE and want to pursue the references. If the cited articles are from journals hosted on HighWire, you can read the full text even if you are not a subscriber, provided you follow citation links from the JDE.
The converse is also true. Other journals on HighWire are linked with the JDE. So someone reading the New England Journal of Medicine or the Journal of the American Dental Association, for example, would have direct access to JDE articles cited in those journals.
