The Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (RSDM) is New Jersey's only dental school, encompassing education, patient care and community outreach. It's also the state's largest oral healthcare provider, treating more than 130,000 patient visits annually at its student clinic in Newark and three sites in South Jersey. Formerly the New Jersey Dental School, RSDM was established in 1956, as part of the Seton Hall College of Medicine and Dentistry, which later became the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). In 2013, UMDNJ integrated with Rutgers University and the dental school was renamed again. Known for its intensive clinical programs and close-knit, supportive environment, RSDM is one of the most diverse dental schools in the nation. It also has an ethnically and economically diverse patient pool, including many who are underserved. RSDM's special needs clinic is one of the only facilities in the region that provides dental care for patients with disabilities. Its Dental Specialty Center for post-doctoral students is equipped with cutting- edge technology and a design that fosters collaborative care. For predoctoral students, RSDM's match rate is consistently well above the national average and students routinely score above the 95th percentile on board exams. Research at the dental school spans clinical studies of dental disease and groundbreaking work that explores the potential of oral microbiomes to fight drug resistant pathogens and treat cancer and autoimmune disease. New research laboratories, totaling 25,000 square feet, were added in the fall of 2018. RSDM students and faculty perform community service and outreach in Newark and other New Jersey municipalities and embark on annual overseas dental missions. There are two trips to the Dominican Republic: one in the village of La Romana and another on the border of the Dominican Republic and Haiti, where patients from both nations receive care. Other missions include trips to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to treat patients with cleft palates and a summer mission to Native American reservations, where patients are treated at clinics run by the federal government. The school is extremely competitive, choosing about 100 students a year from a field of more than 2,000 applicants for its incoming DMD program. Many students are from New Jersey and several are among the first generation in their families to attain a college degree.
