Community outreach has been a cornerstone of the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) since its inception. Improving the overall health of the global population remains a key component of our School’s mission. At the same time, community service programs provide indispensable learning opportunities for our students. And opening the eyes of future health care professionals to health disparities in our nation and around the world is, we believe, a vital part of a complete education in dental medicine.
Effective, nationally recognized programs
GSDM’s Division of Community Health Programs (CHP) is dedicated to enhancing our students’ educational experience and improving our community’s oral health.
