For more than 40 years, CU Dental has been educating competent and compassionate dentists through quality educational experiences personalized for each of our successful graduates. Through combining classroom and clinical training, students master the skills required to deliver comprehensive dental care and become leaders in their field.

CU Dental students have learned to expect and enjoy the school hallmarks that make us unique including:
  • ​Rotating through our Advanced Clinical Training Service (ACTS) program - a nationally recognized service learning program allowing 4th year DDS students to provide dental services for eight months in an underserved community in 30 clinics across the state of Colorado. 
  • Participating in campus-wide interprofessional education programs​, including our national award winning Frontier Center program, which aim to increase collaboration across health disciplines and improve patient outcomes.   
  • Giving back to our military veterans by providing free dental care at the CU Heroes Clinic, a clinic designed specifically for military veterans enrolled in a degree program at the University of Colorado.
  • Taking advantage of our research opportunities where dental students help address issues related to oral health and diseases, cancer research, biomaterials, bioengineering and craniofacial biology.
