  • School of Dentistry

    The School of Dentistry is one of six health professional schools at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. 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.
