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.

The LLUSD Experience
LLUSD Patient Story: Deputy Alex Collins

Dentistry is an exciting field with many advances in technology and research. Hear from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry students, staff, faculty and administration to find out why they picked Dentistry as a career path and what makes our school such a special place.

It’s a story that made national news. San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy Alex Collins was shot multiple times during a gun battle with ex-police officer Christopher Dorner. Watch his story and learn about the LLU School of Dentistry doctors that helped save his life.

Loma Linda bleeds through and through and shines service. It’s not just a motto it’s a way of life for Loma Linda.
