Improving Oral Health
Defined by innovation in education, patient care, research and service, the WVU School of Dentistry fosters the development of clinically competent graduates. Both dental and dental hygiene students spend two years collaboratively treating patients in clinics on and off campus.
Robotics in Dental Surgery
Post-graduate students learn using robotic-assisted technology for dental implant procedures. WVU School of Dentistry is one of two U.S. schools using the Yomi, breakthrough dental-implant technology improving accuracy in surgery.
Both dental and dental hygiene students must complete at least a six-week rotation at a private, rural dental practice in West Virginia. The partnership, with more than 60 West Virginia dentists, provides students a close look at managing their own offices and treating patients.
Outreach and Advocacy
For even more hands-on experience and to improve the oral health of children and adults across the state, School of Dentistry students must accumulate 100 hours or more of community engagement work prior to graduation.
Your generous contributions enable our students to continue learning and touching the lives of people throughout the state of West Virginia. If you'd like to help advance the field of dentistry, please consider making a gift to the School of Dentistry.
