Academics & Admissions
Academics & Admissions
For 150 years, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine (TUSDM) has been a paragon of academic and clinical excellence. Our mission, education committed to clinical excellence, is embodied in each of our academic programs.
In our four-year Doctor of Dental Medicine program, students receive a comprehensive education that emphasizes the importance of didactic coursework, pre-clinical training, clinical experience, and practice management that prepares them to enter the work force as confident, proficient clinicians.
International Student DMD Program
The Dental International Student (DIS) Program at TUSDM began in 1956 to provide foreign-trained dentists with the education and experience required to practice dentistry in the United States. The program comprises five semesters (27 months) of coursework and clinical experience, and upon completion of the program students receive a DMD degree and are eligible for licensure to practice in the United States.
We offer twelve accredited graduate programs, three fellowships, three certificate programs and one internship that will prepare students to be leaders in their chosen specialty. These one, two, three, or four year programs focus on hands-on training, residencies, research, and mentorship.
Pre-Dental Non Degree Programs
The Tufts University School of Dental Medicine (TUSDM) Pre-Dental Non-Degree (PDND) program is designed to offer a unique opportunity for dental school applicants whose academic credentials are not strong enough for admissions to the TUSDM DMD program.
All programs offered at TUSDM are housed within one of our nine academic departments.
- Comprehensive Care
- Diagnostic Sciences
- Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
- Pediatric Dentistry
- Public Health and Community Service
Students enrolled in the DMD, the Dental International Student Program, and accredited post-graduate programs at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine can access a wide variety of both federal and institutional financial aid. Both merit and needs-based grants are available to those students who qualify.
