About the College

Welcome from Dean Lloyd

Dean Patrick M. Lloyd

On behalf of all the students, staff, and faculty of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, I welcome you to our website. We are pleased to provide you with a comprehensive and in-depth presentation of all the things that make our College of Dentistry a truly distinguished institution for education and training, research, and clinical care.

Whether you are a patient seeking dental treatment, an undergraduate or graduate student looking for admissions materials, a potential employee who is exploring faculty or staff career opportunities, or a grateful alum who wants to know how to make a gift to the college, you will find what you need right here.

Regardless of the reason for your visit to our website, I encourage you to look around. We have structured our web pages so you can easily go from one section to another, learning all about our clinical operations, educational programing, and research. In short order, you will have a greater appreciation for the scope and quality of our work, and you will be better informed about any of the subjects or questions that may have brought you to our website.  

For those of you who are interested in knowing more about what’s new in our college, please consider reading the most recent electronic issues of our monthly newsletter, First Thursday, and our biannual alumni magazine, The Ohio State Dental Journal. These are some of our favorite resources for those who want to get informed about us and get connected with us.

I hope you find that the time you spend on our website is productive and insightful. I also hope you will share with others what you have learned about our college and the many things that make The Ohio State University College of Dentistry a great place to learn, to work, and to grow.

My very best regards,

Patrick M. Lloyd, DDS, MS
