The Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health will educate dental students to provide comprehensive patient care in an environment of scholarly engagement and inquiry. Graduates will become community and educational leaders, serve those in need, and promote life-long learning. The program will produce graduates with a strong foundation of critical inquiry, evidence-based practice, research, and cultural proficiency, an orientation to prevention and interprofessional and interdisciplinary healthcare experiences. We will promote the delivery of optimal patient care and foster the transfer of newly acquired knowledge, skills and technology to the profession and to the community. The curriculum will intertwine the humanist qualities of compassion, altruism and community-focus with the traditional educational components of oral health competency, ethics, integrity, leadership, service, professionalism and excellence.
MOSDOH students spend the first two years studying the basic sciences and clinical introductions in a classroom setting. Third and fourth year clinical education will be based in St. Louis, which will provide an adequate population base of patients in need of dental services. At least half of the fourth year clinical experiences will be distributed in Community Health Centers (CHCs) and other safety net clinics in Missouri and the Midwest Region, including our partner in Kirksville - the Northeast Missouri Health Council.
The dental simulation clinic is located on the first floor of the IPE building and serves as an innovative learning environment where MOSDOH students learn the dental sciences with the best technology available before advancing to the MOSDOH patient-care setting in St. Louis. The 7,000+ square foot simulation clinic has 48 student workstations, each equipped with a KaVo Mannekin Simulator, LED dental light, dental instruments, and a flat screen display monitor. An instructor's station at the front of the clinic provides space for faculty members to demonstrate techniques which can be broadcast directly to each individual student station. In addition to student and faculty work stations, the simulation clinic houses four dental operatories with digital x-ray units, a sterilization center, a dispensary and a wet lab consisting of eight sinks and stainless steel work space.
