Through our efforts, the School of Dental Medicine (SDM) envisions itself a valued state resource and a leading institution in dental education, research and patient care. To accomplish this, we will be a model for how a dental school functions within an academic health center and for our interface with the School and profession of Medicine. Our students, faculty and staff will view the SDM as a welcoming, collegial and professional place to work and study. Our health care providers will have the highest respect for the patients they serve and our patients will appreciate the quality of the care received and for the manner delivered. Collectively, we will embrace excellence and innovation in all areas of our Mission and will aim for integration and synergy in our teaching, research, patient care and service/outreach efforts.
