Message from Dean Denise Kassebaum, DDS, MS

Dean Denise KassebaumWelcome!

The University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine (CU SDM) is an amazing research-intensive, comprehensive dental education institution with state-of-the-art clinical care facilities, located on the Anschutz Medical Campus.

The School of Dental Medicine believes dental health is critical to overall health, and we are dedicated to integrating dentistry and the other health professions through our innovative educational programs, real-world research, exceptional patient care, and life-changing community outreach initiatives. Believing that there should not be a distinction between dental and systemic health, the SDM emphasizes our intention to integrate “dental” to improve health.

I'm inspired every day by the wealth of diversity and talent that is present at the CU SDM. I’m excited for you to take a look around our website and discover the education, research and clinical programs that are shaping tomorrow’s dental workforce, creating new knowledge and providing patient-centered care.

Whether you are a prospective student with an interest in building your future, a potential faculty or partner who wants to make a difference by working with us, I am confident you will discover why the SDM is one of the most selective US dental schools and is powering the future of integrated health.

Thank you for your interest in the work we do.


Dean's Signature
