A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH) was established in 2003 and is Arizona’s first dental school. ATSU-ASDOH was founded to address the disparities in oral healthcare in Arizona and across the nation. By graduating dentists who have an in-depth understanding of and a desire to serve communities in need, ATSU-ASDOH will help increase access to necessary healthcare services for underserved populations.
ATSU-ASDOH’s Doctor of Dental Medicine program features an innovative curriculum that includes state-of-the-art facilities and simulation technology, service learning experiences, and leadership training.
ATSU-ASDOH prepares compassionate, technologically adept dental students to become community and educational leaders who serve 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.
Upon completion of the four-year program, graduates receive a doctor of dental medicine (D.M.D.) and a certificate in public health. Students also have the opportunity to obtain their Master of Public Health degree while in dental school. In addition, ATSU-ASDOH offers an advanced education program leading to a certificate in Orthodontics.
