This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2021-2022 VCU Bulletin. This edition includes all programs and courses approved by the publication deadline; however we may receive notification of additional program approvals after the launch.

The vision of the VCU Department of Pediatric Dentistry focuses on the oral health of the growing and developing child and how oral health impacts the overall health of the individual, which in turn informs a multidisciplinary approach to prepare students and residents for a rapidly evolving health care environment. The VCU Department of Pediatric Dentistry is committed to clinical excellence, innovative educational initiatives and forging ahead with translational research.
