Seven U.S. dental schools are contributing to a database of oral health care information pulled from electronic health records. The "BigMouth Dental Data Repository," directed by Dr. Muhammad Walji and hosted at UTHealth, is a treasure trove for researchers.
Since its founding in 1905, The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston has graduated nearly 10,000 dentists, dental hygienists and postgraduate generalists and specialists. The school is part of UT Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), joining schools of medicine, nursing, public health, biomedical sciences and biomedical informatics.
The School of Dentistry offers 10 accredited programs: DDS, dental hygiene, two general residency programs and six specialty programs, including endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics and prosthodontics, plus dual-degree programs in partnership with the School of Public Health and McGovern Medical School. Preceptor programs are also available.
Our dental school has served Southeast Texas since 1905, providing a broad range of services, from fillings to reconstructive surgery. Patients are cared for by students and residents under faculty supervision.
Each year, we enroll 100 DDS and 40 dental hygiene students. UTSD students gain clinical skills at on-site clinics, hospitals, and through community outreach projects. Advanced and continuing education programs are offered as well.
UTSD excels in several areas of research, including the biomedical and clinical sciences, education, dental informatics, and much more. Our research programs benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and world-renowned faculty.
