Dean's Message

The Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine faculty and staff believe our primary purpose is to educate and mentor students to become competent, compassionate and caring health care professionals and community leaders.

As a dental student in Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine, you will be a valued part of the newest and most up-to-date educational program in dentistry in the country. The campus of MWU is situated in Glendale, Arizona — part of the "Valley of the Sun" of the greater Phoenix area — and offers an outstanding educational experience, as well as an ideal climate and the opportunity for unlimited outdoor enjoyment.

The incoming first-year class (Class of 2012) matriculated in August 2008 and will have the rare opportunity for its members to be a part of an inaugural class at a University with a long tradition of providing outstanding educational experiences to students in medicine, pharmacy, and other health-related disciplines. Students will learn the interdisciplinary roles that are a part of the future delivery of optimal oral health as a component of overall general health.

The administration and faculty consists of leaders involved in contributing to the future of the profession and who are committed to excellence in education and patient treatment. The faculty will provide a collegial and positive environment for student learning in one of the most worthy and needed professional disciplines of our healthcare system.
