Essential Information

Individuals who wish to practice dentistry should look for schools that provide doctorate programs in the field. In Ohio, there are two schools that offer doctorate programs in dentistry. In addition, these schools provide students with various dental-oriented certificate and degree programs. Such dental programs include practicum requirements in addition to major classes; undergraduate degree programs also include general education classes. Students must earn an undergraduate degree prior to enrolling in a master's or doctoral program. There are a couple of additional schools in the state that offer pre-dentistry undergraduate programs.


Case Western Reserve University

Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland came to be when Western Reserve College and the Case Institute of Technology merged in 1967. The School of Dental Medicine houses the university's dental degree programs in general dentistry and specialized areas. With extensive clinical experiences, didactic coursework, a state-of-the-art Dental Simulation Clinic and a focus on the managerial and entrepreneurial aspects of being a dental practitioner, the Doctor of Dental Medicine program prepares future dental professionals for successful careers in dentistry. While enrolled in this program, students participate in the Healthy Smiles Sealant Program and a Preceptor Program, ensuring the most experienced individuals teach them. Program graduates exit with the ability to become clinicians and dental business managers.

The Doctor of Medicine and Certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program is open to individuals who have earned a Doctor of Dental Medicine or Doctor of Dental Surgery. This is a joint program with the university's own School of Medicine, allowing students to gain useful experience in all areas of clinical surgery. Students can also choose to enroll in one of the school's Master of Science in Dentistry programs. The school offers this degree in the areas of endodontics, orthodontics, or periodontics (with a certificate). The school also offers a one year Advanced Education in General Dentistry Certificate.

Ohio State University is located in Columbus. The school is home to more than 56,000 students annually. Ohio State University's College of Dentistry offers both pre- and post-doctoral training, including advanced options in all of the major dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. OSU offers residencies and other options in the areas of restorative and prosthetic dentistry, endodontics, orthodontics and periodontology. OSU offers applicants a preparatory DENTPATH program that involves three quarters of lecture and lab instruction, science review and mentoring with a licensed dentist.
