The US has some of the best dental schools in the world.
Here, we'll go over some of the best dental schools in the US based on overall rank.
The ranking system was based on notable faculty, research funding/grants, average GPA/DAT score of admitted students, number of students who get accepted to speciality programs, and more. Just because a dental school is ranked highly, it does not mean it's the best school for everyone. After all, there isn't an objective way to rank schools based on practice-ready graduates or how successful they will be at treating certain patients or running a private practice.
Here are the top dental schools in the US:
1. University of Michigan School of Dentistry
2. UCLA School of Dentistry
3. University of Washington School of Dentistry
4. Harvard School of Dental Medicine
5. University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine
6. University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Dentistry
7. University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry
8. Columbia University College of Dental Medicine
9. New York University College of Dentistry
10. University of Florida College of Dentistry
