Community-based Education Model

ASDOH uses an educational model that relies on an exceptional cadre of motivated, experienced, learning guides (mentors) for our students in both the pre-clinical and clinical phases of the degree program. In addition to the issues of oral health and the skills of dentistry, students will learn from, and be encouraged to become caring, community-minded healthcare providers. We expect that our graduates will be leaders in their communities and managers of public, not-for-profit, and private sector oral health organizations.

The dental program features:

  • Innovative curriculum: integrating science, human systems, and clinical care
  • Simulation technology: accelerating skill development for clinical excellence
  • State-of-the-art facility: using a new facility and digital resources for the faculty and students of tomorrow
  • Needs focused: educating competent, compassionate dentists for underserved communities
  • Service education: coordinating student partnerships with communities of need
  • Leadership training: educating dentists to be community health leaders
