DDS Program

Where state-of-the-art dental education meets a compassionate approach to patient care. 

There has been a paradigm shift over the last ten years in techniques and modalities for treating patients, and how we practice dentistry. As a new school, Touro College of Dental Medicine has designed its program to teach the latest techniques and technologies, utilizing the most advanced equipment and instrumentation in the field.

We offer a four-year dental educational program leading to the D.D.S. degree. Our goal is to graduate outstanding dental professionals who will utilize a complex knowledge base, sophisticated perceptual skills, and deliver excellent health care to diverse communities. Our basic and preclinical sciences curriculum - which includes biomedical foundational course work, preclinical dental simulation education, and behavioral science and practice management - combined with our two-year clinical program, lay out the pathway to accomplish this.

Housed on the campus of New York Medical College, TCDM has access to biomedical science facilities and laboratories, and to the NYMC faculty, with their many years of experience. Our basic and pre-clinical sciences curriculum is closely integrated with medical education.

TCDM's clinical program begins with the foundation in the dental simulation laboratory and then pairs students to treat patients in our modern clinic. Putting into practice what has been learned in the classroom, dental students create treatment plans for their patients and employ digital impressions, 3D scanning and printing, and other current technologies.
