Mission: The University of Michigan has a legacy of tackling critical health issues through research and action. The School of Dentistry will build on this tradition by generating novel approaches and partnerships that improve oral health and promote global health equity through research, education and service.

Vision: The School of Dentistry aims to embrace multidisciplinary collaborations, leveraging the strength and expertise of its members and partners to find and implement sustainable solutions that improve oral health and promote global health equity. Our international agreements are formed on the principal of valuing the wisdom and expertise of others. We aim to produce new knowledge that serves society and builds a collective capacity.
