The College of Dental Medicine faculty have diverse educational backgrounds and experiences that have generated a scholarly educational environment beyond reproach. We expose our students to all aspects of clinical dentistry, as well as a broad range of research activities.
The Dental Clinics Building opened in the Fall of 2009. Its bold lines and innovative architecture have helped make this building a leading example for many dental schools currently building new clinical facilities. With over 118,000 square feet, all departments and clinics have enough room to expand as needed while continuing to deliver the highest level of dental care.
The Dental Clinics Building has 189 dental operatories and the full spectrum of ambulatory outpatient oral health services. In addition to undergraduate programming, the clinical facility also houses seven residency programs: Advanced Education in General Dentistry, Digital Dentistry, Endodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, and Periodontics. The facility also houses a stand-alone clinic for patients with special health care needs.
The mission of the College of Dental Medicine is to develop transformative leaders and oral health providers to improve wellness. Our commitment to education, research and patient care will be driven by a collaborative and entrepreneurial approach that will result in global impact on the profession.
