Located on two downtown campuses in Richmond, VCU enrolls nearly 32,000 students in 205 certificate and degree programs in the arts, sciences and humanities.

MCV Hospitals and the health sciences schools of Virginia Commonwealth University compose the VCU Medical Center, one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers.

History of the School of Dentistry

The School of Dentistry was created in 1893 when the University College of Medicine opened with a dental department as one of its original divisions. The Medical College of Virginia inaugurated a dental education program in 1897, and in 1913 the two schools were merged to form the MCV School of Dentistry.

In 1968, by an act of the Virginia General Assembly, the Medical College of Virginia was merged with Richmond Professional Institute to form Virginia Commonwealth University. The School of Dentistry is located on the Medical College of Virginia campus.

Consistent with the University's mission, the School of Dentistry's programs are guided by the following Mission Statement:

The VCU School of Dentistry is a public, urban, research dental school, supported by Virginia to serve the people of the state and the nation. The school's mission is to provide educational programs that prepare graduates who are competent to provide dental care services; generate new knowledge through research and other scholarly activity; and provide quality oral health care to the public and service to the community.
