The Dugoni Experience

Message from the Dean

The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is committed to excellence in education, research and service; and to responding to our students' needs in their pursuit of knowledge and professional growth. Dugoni is one of the leading dental schools in the nation and has served the Bay Area community since 1896. Our dental clinics handle more than 135,000 patient visits a year, offering comprehensive and affordable oral health care to adults and children.

As the dental school enters its 115th year in San Francisco, we will continue to build upon our strengths as a leader in student-centered education and to provide quality dental services to a wide range of people throughout Northern California.

Our dental school is truly unique, providing a positive and meaningful experience for our students, faculty, patients and alumni. I'm confident that the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry will continue to graduate dentists who, by virtue of their diverse training, caring attitude and clinical experience, will be leaders in the dental profession.
