At this time, our clinical care partners in community-based sites are no longer able accepting exemptions for religious or philosophical reasons. Students with exemptions for religious and philosophical reasons will no longer be able to attend off-site clinical rotations, effective immediately. In alignment with healthcare providers nationwide, effective immediately, the School of Dentistry will require COVID-19 vaccinations for students.
