The University of Utah School of Dentistry recognizes the vital role of research in the discovery, development, and eventual translation of new biomedical knowledge to identify and address oral health problems.
We are integrated with the University of Utah Health Sciences and their outstanding tradition of biomedical research and translational philosophy.
Our research program is designed to foster collaborative efforts with investigators and clinicians to optimize unique resources and scientific expertise for both dentistry students and faculty.
Few dental schools are located in a research-rich institution. To take advantage of these unique research opportunities, faculty members are encouraged to conduct interdisciplinary scholarly activity with established institutional programs like the Utah Addiction Center.
