Admissions Overview

On July 1, 2013, RBHS-New Jersey Dental School became part of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Now known as the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, we continue to be a national leader in dental education.

We have prepared several generations of students to excel in the many roles the dental profession demands: that of diagnostician, clinician, artist, engineer, architect, teacher, communicator and business manager. Besides mastering the clinical and technological skills necessary to become excellent practitioners, our students also learn to become culturally sensitive to the needs of today’s ever-more diverse population. They also gain the knowledge to address the needs of an aging population, many of whom are keeping their teeth for a lifetime. Our students also learn to recognize systemic diseases that manifest in the oral cavity, as the link between oral health and overall health grows ever stronger. And they learn the latest technologies, so they can offer their patients every treatment option available.
