Dentistry & Oral Health
ATSU’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ASDOH) offers a residential four-year program culminating in a Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree. The dental program prepares caring, technologically adept dental students to become community and educational leaders serving those in need. The school offers students an experience-rich learning environment where health professionals approach patient health as part of an interdisciplinary team. The relationship of oral health to total healthcare is an essential component of the mission, teaching, and clinical experiences at ASDOH.
ASDOH students spend the first two years studying the basic sciences and clinical introductions in a classroom setting. Third-year students complete dental simulation exercises and work side by side with trained dentists in our campus clinic. Fourth- year rotations at community-based clinics may include experiences at a Community Health Center, Indian Health Service clinic, Veteran’s Administration clinic, and military base clinics.
