Led by Inaugural Dean Christopher Halliday, DDS, MPH, MOSDOH offers an educational model that relies on an exceptional cadre of motivated, experienced faculty for students in both the preclinical and clinical phases of the program. In addition to the issues of oral health and the skills of dentistry, students learn from and are encouraged to become caring, community-minded healthcare providers. MOSDOH expects our graduates to be leaders in their community and a resource for public, not-for-profit, and private sector oral health organizations.
The dental program features:
MOSDOH students spend the first and second year studying the basic sciences and are provided an introduction to clinic in the classroom setting as well as complete dental laboratory exercises in the campus simulation clinic. Third-year students work side-by-side with licensed dentists in our St. Louis clinic. Fourth-year rotations at community-based dental clinics may include experiences at a community health center, Indian Health Service clinic, and Veteran’s Administration clinic. Additionally, students who enter the program and do not have either a certificate or master’s degree in public health earn a certificate in public health with dental emphasis while enrolled at MOSDOH.
