The School of Dentistry begins each year with SOD Research Day. This event presents an opportunity for the UMMC community, and students and colleagues from other institutions, to learn about the diverse types of research being done at SOD and hear a lecture by a leading scientist in dental research.
Dental students, graduate students, residents and faculty are invited to participate in poster presentations. Dental students are also eligible to compete for sponsored awards and recognition.
