About us

Student with faculty member

Our mission is to educate students in the art, technical science and practice of both fixed and removable prosthodontics including the restoration of dental implants. In addition, the Department of Prosthodontics maintains the responsibility for the Dental Service Lab. Furthermore, we are dedicated to expanding our knowledge and increasing our effectiveness through both prosthodontic and educational research.

Core values


We are honest. We do what we say we will do. We meet our obligations in all that we do.


We treat all people with respect. We value their opinions, wants, and needs. We practice the "Golden Rule".


We are committed to do the right thing in all our actions. We meet our responsibilities without question or excuse.


We strive for excellence in all that we do. Good enough is simply not good enough. We acknowledge the inherent difficulty in this pursuit but affirm the striving for excellence as fundamental to all that we do.


We are here to serve the needs of our students and patients as well as the university community and the dental profession.


We carefully manage our finances, resources and the workforce to ensure stability and longevity within the School of Dentistry and the university.
