School Overview

School Info

The purpose of the School of Dentistry is to educate students who can demonstrate the attainment of competence and the progression toward proficiency in providing for the oral health needs of society. This education is designed to be comprehensive in nature and to challenge students to reflect on transcendent values as well as instill caring, ethical, and moral components in their professional lives. This educational experience will enable the students to manage with confidence all phases of comprehensive dental care. It will also prepare the students to evaluate and implement new knowledge and to accept their responsibility of service to one?s community and profession.

Curriculum

The predoctoral educational program is, for the most part, traditional in structure. The curriculum is, however, continuously reviewed and modified as necessary to accommodate societal needs and changing concepts. Within limits of time and resources, a degree of flexibility is incorporated into the curriculum to provide for the particular needs of the student. Courses are arranged over a four year period to provide a sequential progression from competency in the basic sciences to the demonstration of competence and the movement toward proficiency in basic clinical procedures and total patient care.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
