Dental Schools in Missouri Dental Schools  

Dental Schools in Missouri provide the classroom training and hands-on experience required to become a Dentist, one of the best paying healthcare occupations in the United States. Dental Schools in Missouri provide laboratory and classroom instruction in anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, radiography, histology, periodontology (the study of oral disease and health), and related sciences integral to understanding dental health conditions. Dental Schools in Missouri supplement classroom instruction with extensive clinical practice where students work with patients under the supervision of a licensed dentist.

All nine dental specialties require dentists to complete additional training before practicing that specialty. They must usually take a 1- or 2-year residency in a program related to their specialty.

Dentists who want to teach or research full time usually spend an additional 2 to 5 years in advanced dental training. Many practicing dentists also teach part time, including supervising students in dental school clinics.

In addition, a dentist who wants to practice in one of the nine specialties that all states recognize must have a license in that specialty. This usually requires 2 to 4 years of additional education after dental school and, in some cases, the completion of a special state exam. A postgraduate residency term also may be required, usually lasting up to 2 years.
