Georgia Regents University College of Dental Medicine
As Georgia’s sole dental school, the College of Dental Medicine provides education and training for over 300 dental students and 60 residents per year.
A ccredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation, most recently in 2012, the college is committed to growing in its mission areas of teaching, research, and service. Its programs are designed to prepare successful oral health professionals for practice in public, private, or educational settings.
Among dental schools in the U.S., the CDM leads the way in patient- and family-centered care. We possess that distinction and aim to build on it as we grow into the future.
In the past year, the College of Dental Medicine:
- Began a journey with a new leader at the helm – its 4th Dean, Dr. Carol A. Lefebvre.
- Began holding classes in the new Education Commons building, with a state-of-the-art simulation laboratory, two large flexible classrooms for the CDM, a café, student lounge, and a variety of study environments to accommodate 1 to 300 students.
- Increased enrollment to 320 students total in all four classes – on the way to a goal of 400 total students by 2016. In the past 45 years, 2,254 DMDs have earned their degrees here.
