Master of Public Health & Doctorate in Dental Medicine Track

Our MPH-Doctorate in Dental Medicine track allows students in the UNLV School of Dental Medicine to gain a deeper understanding of disease prevention, medical delivery, and health promotion at both an individual and population level within the field of dentistry. The program enables graduates to become leaders in oral health research, education, and community dental health promotion. After completing the dual program, graduates will be eligible to apply for a position within a dental public health residency program.

Students interested in applying for the DMD/MPH program should begin by applying for admissions to the UNLV School of Dental Medicine. Please see the School of Dental Medicine website for specific requirements and deadlines.

Current dental students interested in the dual-degree program are encouraged to submit an application for permission to enter the program to the UNLV School of Dental Medicine Assistant Dean for Admissions and Student Affairs. This request form must accompany the Graduate College application for admissions into the MPH program.

Completed packets will be submitted to the Graduate College for admissions to the Master of Public Health program.
