ADEA recently released the annual data report and interactive charts for the U.S. Dental School Applicants and Enrollees, 2023 Entering Class. The data report provides a comprehensive view of the applicants and first-time, first-year enrollees in the 2023 United States predoctoral dental school entering class. The report analyzes data from ADEA AADSAS® (ADEA Associated American Dental Schools Application System) and TMDSAS (Texas Medical & Dental Schools Application Services). Users can also access trend data for applicants and first-time, first-year enrollees for 24 years from 2000−2023. 

The annually published, spreadsheet-style report and a series of interactive graphics analyze trends for applicants and first-time, first-year enrollees, including characteristics such as gender, race and ethnicity, state of residence at the time of application, academic credentials (GPA and DAT score) and major field of study. Similar to the previous two years, the 2023 edition also includes an analysis of data for historically underrepresented race and ethnicity (HURE) applicants.
