Office of Admissions

Rutgers School of Dental Medicine has prepared generations of students to excel in the many roles the dental profession demands: diagnostician, clinician, artist, engineer, architect, teacher, communicator and business manager. Besides mastering the clinical and technological skills necessary to become excellent practitioners, our students learn to become culturally sensitive to the needs of diverse patient populations. They also gain the knowledge to treat the complex needs of aging patients, many of whom are keeping their teeth for a lifetime. Our students are trained 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.
