Why the School of Dentistry?

Why choose the School of Dentistry?


The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry teaching clinics typically cost about 30% less than private practice dentists.

Our staff

Patients in the student clinics will be treated by third- or fourth-year predoctoral dental students, who are college graduates. These predoctoral students are monitored by our expert faculty, who oversee every step of every procedure, and supported by dental hygiene and dental therapy students. Our specialty and graduate clinics feature resident and faculty practitioners.


By choosing the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry for your oral health needs, you are helping educate the next generation of dental professionals who will translate their knowledge and experience into clinical practice. Improving oral and craniofacial health by educating clinicians and scientists is our mission.
