Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine Fast Facts
The mission of the College of Dental Medicine is to educate students as well as current practitioners of oral health care, to expand the body of knowledge about oral and related diseases, and to serve citizens of the state of South Carolina and the region by providing exemplary oral health care.
The curriculum is structured to allow for a balanced work load, time for remediation of weak students, a broadening of the student`s clinical experience, and an opportunity for the honor student to gain additional experience in areas of special interest. The first two years concentrate on preclinical dental science courses, but clinical observations and experiences are incorporated. The final two years concentrate on clinical practice.
In addition to the clinical facilities located on campus, dental students have an opportunity to participate in programs at the following South Carolina facilities: the Family Practice and Ambulatory Care Center at Richland Memorial Hospital and the Byrnes Medical Center/Crafts-Farrow State Hospital in Columbia, the Coastal Center in Ladson, and the Beaufort-Jasper Comprehensive Health Service in Chelsea.
