Student Affairs

The mission of Student Affairs is to create a positive learning environment by advocating for all pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students and to serve as a “first-line” point of contact for those seeking assistance. Our support begins by promoting physical and emotional wellness and focuses on working proactively to address student issues. We are available to coordinate academic advising, for personal counseling, and to assist you with career resources in your journey through and after dental school. We hope that you engage in School-wide curricular and extra-curricular activities to enhance your experience at GSDM. We encourage you to explore your learning environment and engage your classmates, your professors, and the GSDM staff. These key people will enrich your overall experience immeasurably. We know that you will not only develop your skill as an oral health care professional but also grow as an individual.
