Since its creation nearly a half century ago, the UCLA School of Dentistry has evolved into one of the premier dental schools on an international stage. Whether you’re a student, faculty, or staff, as part of our family you will be a integral part of an organization known for academic excellence, cultural diversity, world-renowned research, and an outstanding record of community outreach.

In the 2009-2010 fiscal year alone:

  • Faculty grants totaled nearly $20 million from the National Institutes of Health and other funding agencies.

  • We had over 120,000 patient visits.

  • We received nearly 1,900 applications for the 88 openings for the 2014 incoming class of DDS students.


Through teaching, scholarship, and public service, the UCLA School of Dentistry is dedicated to improving the oral health of the people of California, the nation, and the world.
