At the University of Maryland School of Dentistry (UMSOD), we are committed to fostering a culture that is enriched by diversity and inclusion, in the broadest sense, in our thoughts, actions, and leadership.

At UMSOD, we strive every day to create and sustain a welcoming environment for all. As a place of learning, we place great emphasis on being an open institution that serves our city, state, nation, and the world at large. By cultivating an inclusive atmosphere at our school and throughout campus — and by  living up to the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s (UMB) Core Values — we can work together to realize a community and society that honors our common humanity.

Our Mission

The University of Maryland school of dentistry is not only an educational institute, it delivers quality dental care to the greater Baltimore, and surrounding areas of Maryland. We value our diverse faculty, staff, and student body, who also provide dental care to a diverse community of patients. We are committed to ensuring an environment of inclusion, equity and equality for minority faculty, patients, staff, and students. This is essential to achieving our goal of excellence and innovation in education, patient care, research, public service, and global engagement.
