Our Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree program prepares students to deliver the highest-quality oral treatment possible, with care and compassion, using the latest techniques and materials
Where Learning Inspires
At Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, we prepare students to excel in an oral healthcare landscape where technology is essential, and holistic, interdisciplinary care is standard. It’s also a world where shifting demographics require providers who can successfully treat patients from many different cultures and backgrounds, including those with special needs. Our intensive clinical program, where students work with patients every day and first and second-year students gain clinical experience as assistants, is known for producing dentists who are well-equipped to begin practice as soon as they graduate.

RSDM’s one-to-one program provides first-year students with a Microsoft Surface that’s already installed with all the settings and applications they’ll need to fuse academic and clinical learning with digital tools and content. They’re equipped to excel from the first day of class.
RSDM is committed to providing students with the deep knowledge of biomedical sciences they’ll need to treat a diverse patient pool, including those with complex medical histories. Faculty who teach biomedical sciences collaborate closely with clinical faculty, so students gain a deep understanding of the interaction between oral and systemic health.
Prepared for Success
"In my 25 years as both a faculty member and general practice residency director…I have found that the RSDM graduates come into the residency program with more clinical experience than graduates from other dental schools, which allows them to take on more complex cases earlier in their postgraduate year. An RSDM education prepares the students for success in their postgraduate programs and beyond.’’
