About the College

College Overview

Our college is the fourth largest public dental school in the United States and consists of ten academic divisions representing all major dental specialties. The divisions offer both patient care services and academic programs, allowing dentists to train as specialists. Also, our Outreach and Engagement activities include over 60 active programs and more than 42 extra mural sites, which continue to expand.

The College of Dentistry provides comprehensive patient care in an unparalleled learning environment with internationally recognized faculty and a supportive network of alumni and friends. In addition, our research programs provide students another dimension beyond classroom and clinical education. Students and faculty members are able to participate in both clinical and laboratory research in areas such as dental materials science, oral and maxillofacial pathology, hard tissue biology, microbiology, neuroscience, and immunology.

By any measure, our success is growing, and we’re excited about the opportunities that stand ahead.
