Faculty and Staff
We work hard to build and maintain the most highly qualified faculty and staff. Our faculty comes to us from a variety of universities all with private practice experience. We have four full time faculty available to assist our students. We also have practicing dental hygienists and dentists as adjunct (part-time) faculty in our clinic. These faculty members are vital to the success of our program. They come to us with a variety of patient experiences and a plethora of knowledge in the field of dentistry. Students benefit from the diversity of backgrounds of our faculty and the experiences they bring to our programs.
The IU Northwest has an onsite Dental Education Clinic. Our Dental Education Clinic is open to the public and provides a rich clinical experience with over 500 hours of hands-on patient treatment time for each student. In our onsite Dental Education Clinic, students provide dental services to members of the Northwest Indiana community. The IU Northwest Dental Education Program has been in existence for over 40 years, graduating highly trained competent dental professionals.
