With a rich history — and a promising future — the UB School of Dental Medicine plays a critical role in advancing oral health in Buffalo-Niagara and around the world.
Established in 1892, the School of Dental Medicine continues to educate general practitioners, specialists and biomedical scientists in the art and science of oral health through our comprehensive accredited programs:
Education programs are provided to some of our 5,700 alumni and others through Continuing Dental Education offerings.
As a proud member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), the University at Buffalo is committed to discovery, both basic and applied research, development and scholarship particularly related to oral health and disease. Efforts are facilitated through our collaborations within UB especially among the four other schools (nursing, pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences, medicine and biomedical sciences, and public health and health related professions) that comprise the Academic Health Center. This rich environment offers students and faculty an extraordinary opportunity to partner in multidisciplinary research, scholarship and creative activity.
Each year, we receive over 140,000 patient visits for a wide range of oral healthcare needs, including general check-ups, emergency treatment, and specialized care. Our patients have access to care at our general and specialty clinics, located in the Squire and Biomedical Research Buildings on UB's south campus, as well as at our partner hospital locations and mobile dental vans serving Erie, Chautauqua, and Allegheny counties.
We take pride in our commitment to community outreach and education. Our faculty and students participate in school programs, health fairs, and community clinics both locally and internationally, providing quality care and educational opportunities to the public. By doing so, we are improving healthcare accessibility and promoting oral health awareness in our community.
