Answer:

Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) clinicals could be listed in the Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS) application as either academic enrichment or employment ( if it led to being an EMT).

You can list EMT clinical hours in the experiences subsection of the supporting information section of the AADSAS application. You can also list them as part of your transcripts, since clinicals are part of coursework. It is a good idea to check with the admissions department of the dental school you are applying to for information on were to place EMT clinical hours, and if in the experiences section, what category would be the best fit. It could be academic enrichment, since it is part of medical education, or it could be part of the employment category, since it is required as part of training/education to work as an EMT. EMT clinicals can not be used to satisfy the clinical requirements for dental school graduation, since those require clinical hours in specific subjects that are unlikely to be covered at all during EMT clinicals, and are very unlikely to be covered with enough experience to satisfy requirements.
