Safety Net Dental Certificate Program

Key recommendations from student focus groups suggested that the James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine should offer a program that instills business and practice strategies unique to the safety net, medical-dental infrastructure, and public health approaches. As a student-informed learning priority, The Division of Population Oral Health, in partnership with the DentaQuest Institute have developed an 18-credit hour, online, certificate degree in Safety Net Dental Practice (SNDP) including, experiential learning with our local community partners. With a total of four elective courses, each course is embedded within the SNDP certificate program has been designed as an online, asynchronous course.

Safety Net Dental Research Club (SNDRC)

The SNDRC began to cultivate opportunities to better understand safety net dental opportunities, discuss evidence-based research in oral health, explore, and develop dental research opportunities of interest for students. This group is a diverse group of dental students from each year of training. We aim to support student research interest and mentorship around underserved populations.
