Find your path

Our Dental Academy removes some of the burden of deciding a future career path. We strive to recruit talented West Virginia high school students who have a desire to become dentists.

Participants join our dental students and faculty in an academic setting that includes seminar and hands-on laboratory experiences.

By the end of the day, Dental Academy members should be able to determine if they have a passion for clinical care, oral health and transforming the lives of patients. 

Qualified recruits

If you are a high school student from West Virginia who is a rising 9th through 12th grader, the WVU School of Dentistry Dental Academy is for you.
Each student must be accompanied by at least one parent/guardian. 

There is no registration fee and lunch will be provided at no cost.  However, workshop participants are responsible for their transportation to this event.

Space is limited to 20 participants.
