Division of General Dentistry

The Division of General Dentistry encompasses the disciplines of oral diagnosis, operative dentistry, fixed prosthodontics, and removable prosthodontics. It is the aim of the division to provide each student with a thorough understanding of both technical and clinical skills which enable comprehensive patient care.  The primary objectives of the Division of General Dentistry can be described on two levels: preclinical didactic courses and clinical education. The division also aims at instilling in each student an interest in exploring new frontiers in dentistry and in recognizing the need for a continued quest for knowledge.

The division houses the International Dentistry Program which is responsible for the management of preclinical and clinical education for students.
