The School of Dentistry offers Advanced Clinical Training Programs* (ACT) for graduates of foreign and U.S. dental schools in general dentistry and a wide range of specialty fields. Our ACT Programs are typically a one to three year commitment and expose trainees to practical hands-on experience.

Download our flier to learn more about our program offerings. After completion of the program, trainees will be awarded a certificate of completion. A majority of our ACT trainees return to their home countries and contribute to the improvement of dental care to various populations around the world.
