About Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry

As a distinguished resource for dental education in Texas for more than 100 years, Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas is dedicated to combining higher education and research with community service.

The college opened its doors in 1905, was affiliated with Baylor University from 1918 to 1971 and spent the next 25 years as an independent, private institution.

In 1996, TAMBCD entered an entirely new era as a member of The Texas A&M University System. In 1999, the college became a founding component of the Texas A&M Health Science Center.

Educating Dental Professionals, Scientists and Academicians since 1905

Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry is a synergistic environment where students learn life lessons -- in addition to dental medicine -- from a diverse patient population. These patients help prepare HSC-BCD students for the real-life challenges and opportunities awaiting them upon graduation.

Enrollment for the 2009 academic year was 568. Approximately 90 percent of the dental and dental hygiene students and 55 percent of the postdoctoral/graduate students are Texas residents.

Since its founding, TAMBCD has graduated more than 8,000 dentists and dental hygienists. The college is known internationally for producing excellent clinicians. More than half of all the dentists in the Dallas/Fort Worth area received their dental education at the college, and nearly one-third of all dentists in Texas are TAMBCD graduates.

Dental hygiene degree and postdoctoral opportunities

The college also graduates the largest number of dental hygienists with bachelor's degrees in the state. TAMBCD recognizes the importance of making opportunities available for graduates to enter a post-graduate experience prior to licensure. Therefore, in addition to the doctor of dental surgery and bachelor's degree in dental hygiene, the college offers a variety of postdoctoral certificate and degree programs.

Continuing Dental Education

Contemporary health professions are marked by constant technological changes, innovations in health care delivery, new clinical procedures and an ever-increasing social awareness.

Such changes have accentuated the need for the professional to remain abreast of new developments by accepting the fundamental and lifelong responsibility for continuous study.

As a part of its obligation to the practicing profession, the Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry vigorously supports continuing dental education and offers a full range of programs.

Lectures, seminars and electronic distance learning about topics of current interest to dentists and dental auxiliaries are taught by TAMHSC-BCD faculty and other respected professionals.
