Destination Dentistry

West Virginia pre-dental college students considering a path to their future can experience what it's like to be a dental student for a day.

Oral Health Our Priority

The dental school fosters an exemplary learning environment that is supported by excellence in oral healthcare education, clinical experiences and research. Ultimately, our goal is to be the dental school of choice for students, faculty, staff and patients.

Faculty and students work with a child in the pediatric dentistry clinic.

Pediatric Dentistry

Developing a Residency

We are upgrading and expanding our pediatric dental clinic in preparation for a new residency program that will help meet oral health care needs for a growing number of Mountain State children.

Learning and Serving

Part of our goal is to reach as many patients in West Virginia as possible. Student dentists and student hygienists do that through school visits, health fairs and working with non-profit clinics.

Outreach and Advocacy

School of Dentistry students must accumulate 100 hours or more of community engagement work prior to graduation. They have opportunities to work with the school's more than 30 service projects that match their interests.
