Welcome to West Virginia University School of Dentistry, located in Morgantown, West Virginia. Founded in 1957, our mission is to provide the state with a nationally recognized oral health center for education, research and service while improving the dental and oral health of all citizens, especially West Virginians. One of the primary ways we accomplish our mission is to educate competent oral health care professionals for the state. Our first dental class entered in the fall of 1957, and our first dental hygiene class entered in the fall of 1961. Since that time, we have graduated over 1750 dentists and over 725 dental hygienists, and our graduates currently practice in 54 of the State`s 55 counties.
The predoctoral curriculum consists of eight semesters and three summer sessions. You are enrolled in courses designed primarily to prepare you for the general practice of dentistry. Your progress is monitored regularly by the Committee on Academic Standards and a team leader program that has been initiated to ensure that students have the appropriate learning experiences to achieve competency. The predoctoral curriculum has recently been revised to provide comprehensive and current course content that is sequenced in a logical manner by addressing how each discipline can contribute to the attainment of competencies that build upon one another.
The School of Dentistry is one of 14 colleges in the University and is part of a comprehensive Health Sciences Center, which also includes Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Allied Health, the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, and West Virginia University Hospitals. The Health Sciences Center campus is also the home for the new Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute, and construction of a new Library/Learning Resource Center is currently underway.
