School of Dentistry
Since 1953, the School of Dentistry has graduated competent and compassionate oral healthcare professionals who contribute to the Loma Linda University Health mission of providing their patients “whole person” care. The school offers the doctor of dental surgery degree; both bachelor of science and associate of science degrees in dental hygiene; and master of science degrees and certification in advanced specialty programs for dental anesthesia, endodontics, implant dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, and prosthodontics. In addition, an International Dentist program gives dentists who have been trained in other countries an opportunity to earn a DDS degree at Loma Linda University.
