University of Puerto Rico (School of Dentistry)

As the only Dental School in Puerto Rico, the School of Dentistry of the University of Puerto Rico has earned a reputation of excellence and commitment to serve the oral health needs of our community. Our mission is accomplished through three fundamental academic activities: education, research and service. General and specialty dental care clinics enable the School to offer dental services to the community.

Through classroom and clinical instruction future dentists and specialists are trained for practice in private offices, hospitals, academia, public agencies and research programs. Our School values life-long learning, critical thinking and social responsibility towards our patients and the community.

The School of Dentistry offers a Doctoral Program in Dental Medicine and advanced education programs in: Pediatric Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Prosthodontics, Orthodontics and a General Practice Residency, all fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association. Research activities are carried out in collaboration with other components of our University and through agreements with national and international universities. A solid continuing education program improves the quality and quantity of educational opportunities for all persons providing oral health care, and enables them to offer excellence in patient care.

Clinical Services, focused on patient’s overall well-being, are rendered at the School's modern clinical facilities. Carefully planned patient services, under faculty supervision, strengthen the academic program and support research initiatives of students and faculty. Patient services are offered at primary, secondary and tertiary levels in intramural and extramural clinics.
