The University of Iowa College of Dentistry is committed to a welcoming and inclusive collegiate community for all students, faculty, staff and patients. Diversity allows us to embrace the unique qualities of an individual; enhances the educational environment for our future dental practitioners; and provides the foundation on which we can better serve our patients with cultural sensitivity and competence.
