We are prepared for your return
We have implemented several safety precautions to help stop the spread of Covid-19. Please view a message from the dental school’s dean, Dr. Paul Krebsbach, to hear about our new protocols, which include pre-appointment health screenings, mandatory face coverings, increased personal protective equipment, and physical distancing.
We look forward to seeing your smiling faces and thank you for your patience during these challenging times.
In the first year of my deanship, I found myself surrounded by faculty, students, staff, and fellow academic leaders wanting to introduce me to the beauty of this campus, this city, and this outstanding dental school – UCLA Dentistry. I have been warmly welcomed by the entire community to what has now become my home.

“Most people are surprised when I tell them that saliva can reveal as much, if not more, than blood or urine can. We have made it our mission to make saliva testing a clinical reality to detect for serious diseases. And we’re getting very, very close.”
