Reminder: Apply for the ADA Institute for Diversity in Leadership by April 30

The ADA is now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 class of its Institute for Diversity in Leadership. Apply by April 30.

The ADA Institute for Diversity in Leadership (IDL) is designed to enhance the leadership skills of dentists who belong to racial, ethnic and/or gender backgrounds that have been traditionally underrepresented in leadership roles.

Since 2003, the Institute program has provided a diverse group of dentists with opportunities to:

  • Enhance their leadership skills and gain leadership experience
  • Strengthen their professional network and build a lifetime of supportive relationships
  • Set new leadership paths within the profession and communities

There is no fee to apply and participation is open to all active, licensed dentists, residing in the U.S. regardless of their ADA membership status. Ideal candidates will have demonstrated leadership potential within dental associations or their communities.

Learn more on and apply by April 30.
