Due to the circumstances with the Coronavirus, UMKC School of Dentistry is canceling all admissions events for the foreseeable future. The safety of everyone in the building is our primary concern and we want to limit any unnecessary exposure to students, patients, and faculty.  If you have registered for one of our events or visits we will be in communication with you regarding this cancellation.  

 The admissions staff is still accessible for questions and concerns by contacting us via phone and email here.  

We encourage all students interested in pursuing a Doctor of Dentistry degree at UMKC to visit the campus.  We think it’s important that students see the school, meet our faculty and ensure that they have the information they need before applying.  Visiting just prior to applying for admissions may limit an applicant’s opportunity to strengthen the application. Visits typically include discussion of an applicant’s desire to be a dentist, admissions criteria and expectations, overview of UMKC School of Dentistry, and a tour of our classrooms, labs, and clinics. Appointments are available Monday-Friday, 8:30-4:00 pm. To arrange a visit contact us at 816-235-2080 or
