For more than a century the College of Dentistry has served the citizens of Ohio, providing an oral health care workforce and caring for patients with complex needs from all parts of the state. The college has been recognized for decades by clinicians and scientists around the globe for the discoveries its faculty have made and their contributions to the published literature. The dental profession and the public at large have benefited substantially from the college’s productive and prosperous history.
As Ohio’s only state-supported dental school, our college’s responsibilities extend to all four corners of the state as we educate new and practicing oral health care providers, provide patient care, and conduct cutting-edge research. We are a state-wide resource that epitomizes how a college on the campus of a land-grant university should serve the citizens of its state.
In developing our five-year strategic plan, we engaged students, staff, and faculty across the college who contributed at all levels and helped to shape every aspect of the plan. We also aligned our plan with The Ohio State University’s to ensure that it supports the goals of the university. Our strategic plan reflects the aspirations of our college and the university community in creating a future we all can be proud of!
