Building the Future
One of four dental schools in the U.S. that combine dental education with a medical school curriculum, the College of Dental Medicine is uniquely positioned to bring dentistry into the age of precision medicine. We have long recognized the relationship between oral health and systemic health, and as the boundaries between them disappear, we are looking ahead to a future where care will be tailored to specific populations and individuals. Our DDS students are at the forefront of this change.
Our students are taught by board-certified dental specialists, and half of our graduates go directly into specialty training upon completion of the DDS degree. Countless opportunities for participation in research, community service, and global health prepare our students for leadership careers in oral health. And there is no better setting for future health leaders to prepare than in New York City, with its vibrancy, diversity, and endless possibilities.
