College of Dentistry
The college is proud to be a national leader as the home to the most diverse student body of any dental school in the nation, and is shaping the future of health care delivery, dental education and research to develop a bold new generation of exemplary clinicians, educators and scientists.
Offering an incomparable education experience for its students through programs that lead to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees and post graduate certificates, the college ensures its graduates are thoroughly prepared to practice dental medicine and serve as leaders in advancing the field and increasing patient access to oral health care.
With more than 100,000 patient visits annually, the dental college is the single largest provider of oral health care services in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, offering specialized patient care ranging from pediatric dentistry and orthodontics to periodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Serving a vital role in the community, the college’s impact reaches well beyond its campus near downtown Dallas. Its students and faculty provide care to more than 50,000 indigent, low-income, and medically-compromised adults and children through North Texas hospitals, community-based clinics, nursing homes, health fairs, detention centers, and public schools. More than half of all the dentists in the Dallas/Fort Worth area received their dental education at the college, and nearly one-third of all dentists in the state are Texas A&M College of Dentistry graduates.
