Doctor of Dental Surgery

The goal of the program is to graduate dentists who have a foundation in the scientific and biologic basis of dentistry, who are sensitive to the needs, values, and attitudes of the individual patient and to the community at large and who possess a variety of diagnostic, therapeutic, and health promotion skills for the delivery of patient care.

This goal is accomplished by a patient-centered educational approach in which biomedical, clinical and behavioral sciences provide the basis for the application of knowledge and skills to patient care.
