Southern Illinois University (School of Dental Medicine)


Since 1972, the SIU School of Dental Medicine has continued to carry out its mission — to improve the oral health of southern Illinois and the region through education, patient care, scholarship and service. During its 30-year history, the SIU dental school has trained over 1,300 dentists.




The school has 44 full-time and 43 part-time faculty positions offering a nationally recognized dental education to nearly 200 students, or approximately 50 students in each class year. Historically, students from the SIU dental school score high nationally on the National Board Dental Exams, Parts I and II. Passing the exams is a requirement for licensure in the United States and is a strong indicator of student preparedness to practice dentistry. Students graduate with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree as some of the best general practitioners of dentistry in the country.




The primary dental education and patient care facilities of the dental school are located in the historic City of Alton. Most patient care is provided in the Main Clinic in Alton, with 72 patient-care stations for student clinical experience. Rotations to the community-based East St. Louis Dental Clinic offer students an extra opportunity to provide dental care to patients in an underserved area. In addition, experience in diagnosis, treatment planning, surgery, and prosthodontic treatment for implant dentistry are all offered at the Implant Clinic on the SIU Edwardsville campus.




After more than a quarter of a century of achievement—regionally, statewide and nationally—the SIU School of Dental Medicine continues to foster a growing tradition of excellence. The school offers a premier dental education for the students it serves, and it offers quality oral health care for the patients it treats.
