Is there a way to perform class verification on dex or smali files before the apk is pushed to the android device?

The only way I'm aware of is to build art for the host and load/run the dex file with that. I don't have specific steps/info handy, but the android build process normally builds a host build of art, for dex pre-oating, and you should be able to use that to verify your dex file.
