hi i am 86 grad-dmd. Tufts has been known primarily for clinical excellence.Over the past 10 yrs or so they have been getting into some research. The reality of the situation is if you ultimately want to do dental research then you will have to get a masters or phd as well. Most of these folks are profs in dental school and most people dont go this route b/c there is very little monetary gain.

Tufts is definitely clinically focused. They emphasized that at my interview. They have a great clininc and good patient base. If you're lookoing for a strong clinical background, then Tufts is a great choice. Also, Temple has a VERY VERY strong clinical background, so I would recommend that school also if you are looking for clinical. Regarding research, the Ivy's are great and BU is also. I hope that helps. God bless. ;)

Also, tufts has a great board score history, so if you're interested in specializing, you'll do well there, too. They are also become more and more active in research. ;)

Tufts is a great clinical school. If you want to do research there, you will not have a problem. Most students there aren't interested and if you are, there will be ample opportunities for you. Tufts as access to research grant money for you to use (I did a few years ago) and you shouldn't have a problem getting it. Tufts is a good choice and you should feel excited to have to opportunity to go there.

All the information I got is from what I was told on my interview day by the assistant dean of admissions. the score information was given as a spreadsheet in a packet the school give you prior to the interview. unfortunately, the school's website is pretty bare bones; there almost no information about the school there, really. There are definitely opportunities for community service. You can do plenty if you join a student organization such as ASDA. There are many more. There are also school based community service such as educating kids on dental care, volunteering in various health related activities, and if i'm not mistaken, the school also has missions to foreign countries.
Personally, I liked everything about the school. The admissions staff were great and the presentation of information about the school was the most well structured that I had experienced.The faculty we met were eager to talk to the interviewees. The facilities are very nice and are well up-to-date with current technology. The students seem happy to be there. The curriculum is well structured. The board score history was great. The reputation of the school is excellent, especially in the northeast. The T stop right outside of the school is great too. I found it to be a great place to be. That's why I chose to be there. God bless. ;)
