About Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine

The School of Dental Medicine is an active participant in meeting the general missions of the University. The school conducts an excellent educational program for its students, contributes to scientific knowledge through its active programs in research, and actively participates in community service through its programs in continuing education and its treatment center, which provides dental care to thousands of community residents each year.

The school is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Education and the State Educational Department and is a component school of the Health Sciences Center at Stony Brook. The school incorporates the disciplines of prosthodontics, operative dentistry, dental materials and radiology into a single department of general dentistry. Orthodontics and pediatric dentistry are combined into a department of orthodontics and pediatric dentistry. Other departments in the school include,periodontology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, dental medicine, oral biology and pathology and hospital dentistry and dental anesthesiology.

Dental students and medical students take the same courses in anatomy, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology and physiology. Small class size allows the student to receive highly personalized instruction. Didactic and clinical instruction is readily adapted to the needs of the individual student. The continued aim of the curriculum is to enable the graduate to readily enter into general practice, advanced training for specialty practice, public health, teaching and/or research.

The school offers the Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree, in addition to postdoctoral education in endodontics, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, general practice residency, dental anesthesiology and care of the developmentally disabled. Graduate Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees are offered through the Graduate School of the University and the school's Department of Oral Biology and Pathology.
