School Overview

School Info

The Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ASDOH) prepares caring, technologically adept dental students to become community and educational leaders serving those in need. The school offers students an experience-rich learning environment where health professionals approach patient health as part of an interdisciplinary team. The relationship of oral health to total healthcare is an essential component of the mission, teaching, and clinical experiences at ASDOH.

Curriculum

ASDOH students spend the first two years studying the basic sciences and clinical introductions in a classroom setting. Third-year students complete dental simulation exercises and work side by side with trained dentists in our campus clinic. Fourth- year rotations at community-based clinics may include experiences at a Community Health Center, Indian Health Service clinic, Veteran's Administration clinic, and military base clinics.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
