The Dental Clinic is part of the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, located on the campus of A.T. Still University off Baseline Road in Mesa. The Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health has been educating dentists and serving Arizona's oral healthcare needs since 2003. The School and Clinic use an educational model that matches an exceptional team of motivated, experienced faculty with students in pre-clinical and clinical phases of their training.
More than 75 faculty members and nationally recognized experts teach in their respective areas of expertise working very closely with students.
Our innovative dental education program is a four-year curriculum. In the first two years, students focus on health sciences, clerkships in general dentistry, and dental simulation exercises. In the third and fourth years, students provide care under direct supervision at the on-campus clinic and practice in community-based health centers. The school places special emphasis on patient care experiences through simulation, integration of biomedical and clinical sciences, and problem-solving scenarios to achieve clinical experience and includes a strong component of public health, leadership, and practice.
In addition to oral health issues and dentistry skills, students are encouraged to be caring, community-minded healthcare providers. Graduates are expected to become leaders in their communities and managers of public, not-for-profit, and private sector oral health organizations.
