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
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
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.
