DDS Program
Touro College of Dental Medicine

In 2016, Touro College of Dental Medicine (TCDM) became the first dental school to open in New York State in nearly 50 years. Combining cutting-edge technology with an academic environment that is rigorous, engaging, and vibrant, TCDM is preparing the next generation of dentists for rewarding careers in a demanding field.

Students begin their training at TCDM’s state-of-the-art simulation laboratory and then transition to provide patient care at Touro Dental Health, the college’s modern, 32,000-square-foot dental training facility. TCDM students, under the supervision of experienced faculty, receive hands-on training while providing comprehensive oral healthcare to adults and children — including patients who may not otherwise be able to afford necessary dental care.

Graduates can pursue careers in numerous specialties, including hospital dentistry, research, public health dentistry, private practice, international healthcare, and more.

Detailed requirements can be found on the TCDM website.
