Bringing a commitment to socially responsible education, patient care, research and the community, the Department of Public Health and Community Service fosters optimal health and quality of life through good oral health. Reflecting Tufts University’s mission of community service and citizenship development, the department not only provides comprehensive instruction and conducts research in a wide array of public health topics, but serves as a role model for future dentists through extensive outreach programs that bring quality services and preventive education to patients in need of dental care. The department consists of four divisions: Education, Advocacy and Outreach; Geratric Dentistry; Public Health Research and Analysis; Special Care in Dentistry.
