Practice the future of dentistry!

As a school with a strong dedication to community, students at Kornberg have the opportunity to engage in a variety of service activities that enhance their work in the dental clinics. To put into practice the school’s commitment to inclusivity and service, Kornberg partners with a number local schools and community organizations to provide opportunities for student-dentists to build a lifelong enthusiasm for community outreach.
