  • Dean's Welcome

    Welcome to the website of the University of Mississippi School of Dentistry. The School of Dentistry is one of six health professional schools at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. One of the nation's youngest schools, the school admitted its first class in 1975.

    Dentistry remains one of the most respected professions, and young men and women are seeking to enter dental schools in increasing numbers each year. Our student body represents an accomplished and diverse group of talented individuals from cities, towns and communities throughout this state.

    The School of Dentistry represents a leading site for the delivery of state-of-the-art dental care in Mississippi. Excellent oral health care is provided by student doctors in the school, by resident doctors in the school, University Hospital and Medical Mall, and by our full-time faculty in the school's faculty practice suite.

    This web site contains information on each of our educational programs, on our programs for patient care including faculty practice, and on the research that is currently being conducted by our faculty. We hope you will find the information you need somewhere on this site. If not, please feel free to contact my office at (601) 984-6000, and we will identify the appropriate staff member to assist you. The faculty, staff, residents and students at the School of Dentistry remain true to our mission and dedicated to meeting the oral and maxillofacial health needs of Mississippi.
