Tufts University School of Dental Medicine offers one of the most forward-looking educational environments in dental medicine in the country. Since its founding in 1868, Tufts Dental School has been committed to excellence in education, research, patient care and community service.
By treating patients in the school’s teaching clinics and through a variety of externships at hospitals and government sponsored dental clinics around the country, Tufts dental students are not only learning how to apply science to practice—they are learning how to employ compassion in the treatment of human illness.
Tufts Dental Clinics offer a full range of high-quality general, specialty and emergency dental care at lower fees than private practices. At the Clinics, exceptional dental care becomes affordable because faculty-supervised pre-doctoral dental students or post-doctoral dental residents provide treatment.
At Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, research and teaching are complementary, producing professionals who possess the analytical capacity and the spirit of inquiry to deal with an ever-increasing knowledge base and rapid technological changes.
Whether it’s providing dental services to those in need, engaging in extensive outreach and education, or improving care and accessibility through cutting-edge research, Tufts Dental School is committed to giving back.
