Creighton University School of Dentistry ranks No. 1 among private dental schools nationwide for the percentage of graduates from 2005 to 2014 who are practicing in rural communities across the United States, according to a report published in the October 2015 issue of The Journal of the American Dental Association.

Creighton dental graduates play a critical role in addressing the shortage of dentists working in rural communities. There are only 40 dentists per 100,000 rural Americans, compared to 60 dentists per 100,000 people living in urban areas of the nation, according to a national “Rural Healthy People” report.
