Support the James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine

Since opening its doors in 1967, the MUSC College of Dental Medicine has grown into one of the top dental colleges in the country, by almost every measure. Academically, its students consistently rank in the top quintile on their national board exams. As South Carolina's only dental school, the college is an important source of dentists in a state that is currently under-served in terms of dental care. About 75 percent of the college's graduates have chosen to remain in South Carolina, and over half the dentists now practicing in the state are MUSC graduates. Meanwhile, the college has rounded out its instructional and clinical programs with a greater emphasis on research, a step that is sure to put the college on the cutting edge of dental treatment and training.
