School Overview

School Info

Now in its second century, the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry has a proud history of providing exceptional dental education and service to the community of Lincoln, the state of Nebraska, and the Great Plains region.

Curriculum

The College of Dentistry strives to create a learning environment in which each graduate is instilled with the determination to provide conscientious care to patients, along with a sense of responsibility to self, the community and the profession. The curriculum for students of both dentistry and dental hygiene provides an orderly progression of knowledge and skills, reflecting the interdependence of biological, behavioral, and clinical sciences. At the same time, the curriculum is flexible, permitting variations in background, interests and career aims and allowing for the development of each student`s potential.

Facilities

Because the College is located on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and is affiliated with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha, we enjoy the benefits of both campuses and are involved in both communities. Whether you are a prospective student, a patient, a dental or dental hygiene practitioner, or you are just interested in the College, we invite you to explore our Web site.

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.
