Pitt's School of Dental Medicine has been providing reduced cost general and specialty dental care to patients from the region since it was founded in 1896. More than 55,000 patients from southwestern Pennsylvania, and from as far away as Montana, Arizona and California, have been treated in the past 5 years. We are the region's dental medicine experts with a focus on providing you with the best care possible.

The school’s Center for Patients with Special Needs provides dental care to adult and pediatric special needs patients.

The Multidisciplinary Implant Center is a major collaboration among several departments at the School and a focal point and center of excellence for the region. A network of integrated dental and medical specialties supports patient care.

Clinical outreach is provided through events held at the school, such as Give Kids a Smile Day, and through many established clinics across the Commonwealth.
