Dental School

A Welcome Message from the Dean
At the Dental School in San Antonio, we make lives better through innovative academic programs, quality patient-centered care and ground-breaking investigations by our nationally acclaimed scientists. While the Dental School has a focus on South Texas, where we have the most immediate impact, we embrace a national and global philosophy through our international training and outreach programs, scientific collaborations and the interaction of our faculty members with colleagues across the world. I hope you find this website to be useful in learning more about our efforts and supporting those programs you are passionate about.

About the Dental School
The Dental School at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio was founded in 1970 and graduated its first class of 14 members in 1974. Today, the Dental School graduates over 90 dentists a year, professionals who serve their communities and make lives better for their many patients. Though we are a young school, we have reached many heights in our 40 years and the best is still to come. With nearly 200 dedicated faculty members in 10 fields of study, we are on the cutting edge of both oral health research and delivery of patient care. The Dental School is a dynamic place where students, faculty and staff come together to share knowledge and skills that will benefit patients in Texas, the U.S. and across the globe.
