Student Story

"I chose UNMC because I was looking forward to learning about the complexities of hospital dentistry. Sedation and medical clearance have always been fascinating to me. I love that I get to work through complicated treatment plans, doing all aspects of care myself while having the comfort of my attendings to back me up every day. I feel lucky that I get to take this year to learn more about dentistry, and I have the pleasure of working with so many wonderful people!" - Jessica Murphree, DMD, GPR Resident
