WASHINGTON, May 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 2013 ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools is now available. The guide, published annually by the American Dental Education Association (ADEA), is aimed at anyone considering a career in dentistry or applying to dental school.

While the resource has, for decades, proven to be an essential resource for students, parents, and academic advisors in this competitive application environment, the 2013 edition of the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools proves timely in its release as dentistry is now ranked #1 in the U.S. News & World Report's 100 Best Jobs of 2013.

"The ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools is the premier guide to dental education available today," says Lori Provost, Past President, National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions, and Director, Health Professions, at Muhlenberg College. "It is an invaluable resource for anyone planning to apply to dental school or exploring a dental education."

With the 2013 ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools, prospective students and advisers can view profiles of two new dental schools, updated profiles and statistics for all U.S. and Canadian dental schools, a revised chapter on financing a dental education, and six new profiles on students from different regions in the United States. It also offers a wealth of useful data on academic and residency requirements, student demographic information, DAT scores, and GPAs.

The ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools is the only authoritative guide to dental education on the market, and is one of many resources ADEA offers for future dental students and residents. ADEA is also home to dental education's application services, including the ADEA Associated American Dental School Application Service (ADEA AADSAS℠), which allows applicants to complete one standardized application for submission to multiple dental schools.
