More than just teeth and gums, proper oral health can have a dramatic effect on the body—from preventing dangerous bacterial infections to detecting oral cancer. At UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry, we recognize that the mouth serves as the gateway to the body, playing a crucial role in overall health.
Each year, roughly 20,000 patients come to our clinics for screenings, preventive care, and treatment. Our experts provide the highest standard of care to patients of all socioeconomic backgrounds, train the future dentists and hygienists who will serve our communities, and make discoveries that lead to better oral health for patients everywhere.
With your gift of any size, you can help us continue the excellence in oral health education, research, and community outreach that changes lives for the better.
