The department of Diagnostic Sciences, Prosthodontics and Restorative Dentistry is committed to supporting the mission of the University and the School of Dentistry through teaching, research, service and patient care.
Our primary mission is to provide high quality didactic, preclinical, and clinical instruction that is contemporary and evidence –based.
The department's faculty members are actively involved in teaching dental students, offering instruction in both classroom and clinic settings. The departmental goals are to graduate competent dentists whose skills include:
- Diagnosing and managing oral-facial pain and oral diseases encountered in clinical dentistry
- Restoring form, function and esthetics through the application of fundamental, sound principles of fixed and removable prosthodontics
- Selecting and using appropriate materials to restore individual teeth while promoting oral health
