Public Health Dentistry

The College of Dentistry at the University of Kentucky has a statewide oral health mission and a rich tradition of involving student dentists and dental residents in community dental health programs.

Our goal is to help increase oral health care access for all Kentuckians by:

  • Educating the public about the importance of oral health
  • Reducing oral health care access barriers for underserved populations
  • Promoting the integration of oral and general health care delivery systems
  • Advocating for the benefits of oral health care with policy-making bodies and organizations

The College of Dentistry at the University of Kentucky has a diverse set of extramural, community-based activities and programs that address this goal in over 40 counties across the Commonwealth.
