A key component of ATSU-MOSDOH’s mission is the development of Integrated Community Service Partnerships (ICSP) that place students in community settings to complete a portion of their fourth-year clinical training. Third-year dental students (D3s) complete their entire clinical education experience at the St. Louis Dental Center. Fourth-year dental students (D4s) complete four, four-week rotations at our affiliated community health centers, principally in Missouri, followed by an equal amount of time at the St. Louis Dental Center.

ICSP is a vital part of ATSU-MOSDOH’s unique educational program and provides our students with:

  • Exposure to a variety of community- and public health-based clinical environments and situations
  • An opportunity to be taught and mentored by skilled clinicians
  • A deeper understanding of the unique oral health challenges faced by many communities and an opportunity to learn first-hand how to address those challenges

MOSDOH has partnered with over 30 CHCs to provide training and treatment facilities for D4 students. Working in CHCs and developing a first-hand appreciation for the impacts of the care they provide will foster and deepen the students’ commitment to public health for which ATSU-MOSDOH strives.
