For a Transformative Education, we welcome you to the Howard Family!
The Howard University College of Dentistry (HUCD) offers programs that prepare students to become leaders in dental education and deliver for the local and global communities. The Howard University College of Dentistry is a teaching and patient care institution and is the fifth oldest dental school in the nation. Our dental clinics, since 1881, have provided quality patient care and service to the community. Through our clinical modules, students are paired with peers on their clinical level and closely work with supervising Faculty to provide patient-centered, evidence-based care in a team based approach.
Our Mission is to provide educational opportunities for those socially, economically and culturally disadvantaged students, particularly African American students, who may not otherwise have an opportunity to acquire an education. Our mission includes the philosophy that education, research, and service are inseparable constituents of a modern dental education. The College's primary goal is to remain a national resource for dental leaders which attracts highly motivated and academically accomplished students from culturally diverse backgrounds.
