Advising & Clinic Observation

We encourage interested students to come and meet with us to learn more about UKCD and our holistic DMD admissions process. We find it very helpful to have conversations early in the decision making process so we can get to know one another, and also assist you in preparing your application. 

Certain times of the year are busier than others. Once our DMD application cycle begins, we only meet with current applicants if and when they are scheduled for an interview. Current applicants may email or call for status updates only.

Please review dates for various offerings below and check back often for new dates should these not work with your schedule. If you have any questions, please contact our Office of Admissions at 859-323-6071.
