Become a Preceptor


About Extramural Rotations

For over thirty years, the College of Dentistry has been sending fourth-year dental students into established dental practices with a preceptor (a professional dentist who acts as a mentor and directs students in their practice) for firsthand experience in running a private practice. These students complete three-week rotations: one rotation in a rural private practice and one in a public health clinic.

The UNMC College of Dentistry is a state-supported school with it’s first priority being to provide dentists for the state of Nebraska. As a regional dental school, we also accept students and preceptors from Wyoming, South Dakota and Kansas for student rotations.
