Dentistry experiential learning

Bringing Smiles to Our Community

Creighton’s School of Dentistry emphasizes the importance of clinical experiences for our students. A diverse clinical experience prepares you for challenges that lie ahead and provide learning opportunities for confidently managing all phases of comprehensive dental care. Students are introduced to clinical situations in their first year and develop the skills needed to provide care for patients in the Creighton Dental Clinic.

The Creighton Spirit of Service

Creighton students excel in the classroom and in clinics and are guided by principles of ethical living, service to others, the search for truth and have a passion for justice. Service provided at “Give Kids a Smile Day” or to underserved patients in the Dominican Republic are a couple of ways in which Creighton students work to create positive change in the world.

State of the Art

Students learn with cutting-edge technology at Creighton University. Technology of the 21st century, combined with an education in the Jesuit tradition, maximizes the effectiveness in the clinic and prepares students for the future of dentistry and their role in the community. Creighton School of Dentistry’s curriculum incorporates:

  • cone-beam computerized tomography

  • CAD/CAM technology in prosthodontics and orthodontics
