At the UNMC College of Dentistry, our students undergo a comprehensive educational journey that equips them with the knowledge, skills and values they need to provide general dental care to patients in all stages of life.
The dental curriculum is meticulously structured to ensure a systematic progression of knowledge and skills, as evidenced by the attainment of specific competencies. These competencies encompass a wide range of complex abilities that are essential for a general dentist to begin practicing independently and without supervision.
Students develop a solid foundation in biomedical, behavioral, and clinical sciences, cognitive and psychomotor skills, and a commitment to professional ethics and values. We foster a human-centered learning environment where each dental graduate develops a profound sense of responsibility toward themselves, their community and the dental profession.
Our curriculum is designed to accommodate the unique backgrounds, interests and career aspirations of each student, allowing them to realize their full potential in their dental education journey.
