Roseman Welcomes Second Class of Doctor of Dental Medicine Students

August 22, 2012

On Wednesday, August 15, 80 students began their orientation for Roseman University’s Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program at the South Jordan, Utah campus. Throughout the week students got an overview of what their four-year dental education will be like, an orientation for technology services available on campus, logistical details like emergency evacuation, name badges, and laptops, and a review of their financial aid options. In addition, they met classmates, faculty, and staff and had a chance to get to know one another before classes officially started.

The second year of DMD students, Class of 2016, includes 80 students selected from a pool of 1,538 applicants (a 26% increase over last year’s application rates). The class includes 28 residents from Utah, 49 from other U.S. states, and three international students from Korea (1) and Canada (2).

Of the 21 female and 59 male students, 74 have a bachelor’s degree, and seven have master’s degrees. They come from varied academic and professional backgrounds, including two dental hygienists and one mortician.

Classes for the DMD program began this week.
