School of Dental Medicine Programs and Admissions

The School of Dental Medicine’s mission is to create programs of excellence in education, research, service and patient care. The dental school enrolls 80 dental students annually. In addition to our nationally recognized DDS program, our post-doctoral programs offer incredible learning experiences. Our orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics programs enrolled their first class of residents in August of 2004. Our pediatric dentistry program (a collaborative program with the Children’s Hospital) at the Healthy Smiles Clinic offers dental care to children who are medically underserved or indigent, and serves as an integral part of our children’s oral health initiative. Our Advanced Periodontal Therapies curriculum is a 36-month program in postdoctoral periodontics which enrolls three residents per class.

Consistent with our mission to increase access to education and care, the International Dental Student Program began in January of 2005, which offers qualified graduates of foreign dental programs the opportunity to earn a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

Research is an integral part of the School of Dental Medicine’s mission, and focuses on both basic science and applied areas of research that address issues related to oral health and disease, cancer research, biomaterials, bioengineering and craniofacial biology. Specific areas of research include developmental biology of the craniofacial region, cell and molecular biology of the oral facial tissues, oral pathology, neoplastic development and the development of polymer dental materials.
