Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Banner

The UCLA School of Dentistry is committed to providing a welcoming, supportive environment for students, trainees, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and ethnicities. Fostering a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion is central to our core values and integral to achieving excellence in our education, patient care, research, and service endeavors.

We also recognize the need for a diverse dental workforce in addressing the oral health disparities affecting our communities. Through mentoring and recruitment efforts such as the UCLA Dental Post-Baccalaureate and the Summer Health Professions Education Programs, we seek to enrich the diversity of our own student classes and the national dental school pipeline to meet this need.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Academic Leadership

The cumulative impact of our faculty members’ tremendous skills, experience, and accomplishments has elevated the UCLA School of Dentistry to the top tier of dental schools in the nation, and allows us to continue attracting the best and brightest students.

We welcome faculty from all backgrounds and seek academic leaders who reflect the rich diversity of the communities we serve.
