Howard University College of Dentistry (HUCD) is the fifth oldest dental school in the nation, having been in existence, since 1881. The mission of the College includes the education of dental practitioners and dental hygienists and emphasizes service to the community. HUCD’s vision is to provide exemplary education, service, and research that promotes collaborative patient-centered care and advocacy, for the elimination of health disparities in the under-represented populations. Our primary goal is to remain a national resource for dental leaders, and a comprehensive education and research institution, which attracts highly motivated and academically accomplished students from culturally diverse backgrounds.
We are currently working on plans to create a state-of-the art dental clinic to be used for the HUCD Faculty Practice and as an extension of our group practice model for our pre-doctoral students. The College of Dentistry consists of 10 departments, 5 post-doctoral programs, and a dental hygiene program.
This tour will highlight the Research Laboratory, housed in the campus Multidisciplinary Research Building, the Medical Simulation and Clinical Skills Centers, and the recently remodeled media center. Space is limited.
