Doctor of Dental Surgery University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Dentistry
UTHealth School of Dentistry (UTSD) is located in the Texas Medical Center (TMC), the world's largest medical complex with 48 member institutions dedicated to the highest quality in patient care, research, and education. The most advanced equipment and educational technology are available in UTSD. For example, our Clinical Simulation and Learning Center was the first in the world to incorporate electronic patient records, multi-media, and mannequins in an actual clinic setting. Before treating real patients, our students train with virtual patients complete with demographics, medical histories, diagnostic images, photographs, and even digital models. The School of Dentistry admits 105 predoctoral dental students each year. The school year consists of two 18-week semesters and one eight-week summer session.
