Columbia University College of Dental Medicine


Welcome to the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, a private dental school established at Columbia University in 1916, with roots dating back to 1852. Leveraging our position within a world-class academic medical centre at an Ivy League university, we advance dentistry’s practice, teaching, and scientific research.

One of our founders, William J. Gies, PhD, asserted that because oral health is inextricably linked to overall health, dental medicine is best taught within an academic medical setting. His words transformed our field, and their full expression is one of the college’s defining features today. In our classrooms, DDS students spend their pre-clinical years studying alongside medical students. In our clinical settings, scientific research and new technologies enhance care. In our laboratories, we advance the frontiers of science, often with students working under the mentorship of renowned research faculty.
