A Culture of Service
At the heart of every Creighton dental school education is a hands-on, compassionate clinical experience. Our students gain competency in clinical techniques and learn valuable skills through their direct involvement with cutting-edge services and interaction with patients. Whether students are volunteering at OneWorld Community Health Centers in Omaha, participating in student table clinics, or helping to organize a local health fair, they are dedicated to making a difference in their local community and in the world.
