Service can transform the World

Community service and outreach are cornerstones of our mission and caring is a mindset here. Through community partnerships we continue our long history of providing care for underserved populations. In addition to providing free dental services and screenings at outreach events throughout Southern California, our student dentists and trainees have the opportunity to interact with people of all ages and backgrounds, and experience the needs associated with diverse groups in the community.

Designing Our Future

The School of Dentistry benefits from our relationship with the people and institutions of Los Angeles, and service is a value we continue to uphold and instill in everyone who receives training at the School of Dentistry. 

Whether out in the community providing free dental care at a health fair, orpromoting oral health for kids, veterans, or the homeless, our faculty, studentdentists, staff, and alumni strive to uphold the ideals of our founding, altruistic principles.
