As highlighted in the October 2018 ADEA Policy Brief, the dental faculty landscape is undergoing
significant change. With 2015-16 data indicating that over 40% of faculty at
academic dental institutions are over 60 years old, creating opportunities and
interest in academic dentistry careers has taken on elevated importance. The
time to address the future shortage of dental educators is now.
A critical part of the solution is dental faculty engagement—their efforts to inspire and mentor students to become future educators can provide students with a first-hand understanding of the value and rewards of academic dentistry.
