Dental students in the classroom

Support the James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine

College of Dental Medicine


Since opening its doors in 1967, the MUSC College of Dental Medicine has grown into one of the top dental colleges in the country, by almost every measure. Academically, its students consistently rank in the top quintile on their national board exams. As South Carolina's only dental school, the college is an important source of dentists in a state that is currently under-served in terms of dental care. About 75 percent of the college's graduates have chosen to remain in South Carolina, and over half the dentists now practicing in the state are MUSC graduates. Meanwhile, the college has rounded out its instructional and clinical programs with a greater emphasis on research, a step that is sure to put the college on the cutting edge of dental treatment and training.

Where your help is needed

Dr. Arthur L. Haisten Scholarship: Honors the late dean emeritus of the college who served as a leader in the early planning of the college. This fund will provide merit-based scholarships.

The prestigious McTeer scholarship, named in honor of our first black graduate, provides financial assistance to deserving students. We recently endowed this fund but hope to grow it to $1 million to offer a larger tuition award, which will ensure our ability to recruit the most talented aspiring dentists who otherwise might be unable to attend.

Harry H. and Adela N. Tetrick Scholarship: Honors a beloved maintenance supervisor. This scholarship will support students with a demonstrated financial need.
