Georgia Regents University College of Dental Medicine
As Georgia’s sole dental school, the College of Dental Medicine provides education and training for over 300 dental students and 60 residents per year.
A ccredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation, most recently in 2012, the college is committed to growing in its mission areas of teaching, research, and service. Its programs are designed to prepare successful oral health professionals for practice in public, private, or educational settings.
Among dental schools in the U.S., the CDM leads the way in patient- and family-centered care. We possess that distinction and aim to build on it as we grow into the future.
In 2014, the College of Dental Medicine:
- Began a new journey with a brand-new leader at the helm – its 4th Dean, Dr. Carol A. Lefebvre.
- Will hold classes in a brand-new Education Commons building, with a state-of-the-art simulation laboratory, two large flexible classrooms for the CDM, a café, student lounge, and a variety of study environments to accommodate 1 to 300 students.
- Will educate 320 students total in all four classes – on the way to a goal of 400 total students by 2016. In the past 45 years, 2,254 DMDs have earned their degrees here.
Students begin treating patients as early as sophomore year, enjoying a seamless transition from lecture halls and laboratories to clinics. As they master new skills they practice them in the clinic, closely supervised by caring, committed faculty. The fourth year of education is devoted almost solely to patient care. Students also practice their skills in clinics and facilities throughout the state. To become a student, click here.
