Founded in 1997, NSU’s College of Dental Medicine has the distinction of being the first private dental college established in the state of Florida, and the first College of Dental Medicine established in partnership with a College of Osteopathic Medicine in the United States. The high level of training provided depends upon the philanthropy of companies like Nobel Biocare, a pioneer in the field of implant-based dental restorations. Nobel Biocare recently provided $150,000 in addition to in-kind support, bringing their lifetime giving to NSU to nearly $1.5 million.
“The NSU College of Dental Medicine appreciates the long standing partnership with Nobel Biocare,” said NSU College of Dental Medicine Dean Linda C. Niessen, D.M.D., M.P.H. “This partnership has enhanced the pre-doctoral educational program, enabling dental students to increase their experience in providing dental implants for patients.”
The College of Dental Medicine Patient Care Center, located in Nova Southeastern University's College of Dental Medicine building, offers patients comprehensive dental care within a university setting. Dental care has also been expanded to our satellite dental clinic located in North Miami Beach. Pediatric dental care is provided at the KID dental clinic in Wilton Manors and the Joe DiMaggio Medical building.
Patients can choose from treatment options that include general dentistry as well as specialty care, such as, orthodontics (braces), pediatric dentistry (children's dentistry), endodontics (root canal therapy), periodontics (gum surgery, implants), oral surgery (extractions, jaw surgery, implants) and prosthetics (complete and removable partial dentures, crowns, bridges).
