“It feels really great to be recognized for my hard work. This makes me want to strive even harder. Receiving this award makes me think that, once I start my career, I also want to give back to help students succeed.”
Ahmed Alkholeidi, DDS '16, who received a Gaylord Scholarship
Our vision is to be the first thought in oral health care, education, and discovery.
The Department of Advanced Oral Sciences and Therapeutics seeks to bring together the clinical and scientific expertise of endodontics, periodontics, dental hygiene, prosthodontics, biomaterials and tissue engineering to challenge existing barriers to oral health. We do this through the alignment of shared expertise and scientific inquiry with clinical care and education.
