About the School

Community Outreach

















The UMKC Dental School's commitment to meeting the oral care needs of Kansas City's underserved is evident through a partnership with a number of on-going community-based programs.

Patients who cannot afford or will not otherwise seek care from the school or private practitioners can receive care from a number of settings including: Kansas City Free Health Clinic, Richard Cabot Community Health Clinic, Sam Rogers Health Clinic, Swope Parkway Health Center, Seton Family Health Center, Southwest Boulevard Health and through other outreach services.

Other School of Dentistry extramural programs regularly reach out to patients across the states of Missouri and Kansas, including St. Louis, MO, Springfield, MO, St. Joseph, MO, Nevada, MO, Hickman Mills, MO and Olathe, KS.

In addition to outreach programs sponsored by the school, students, faculty and staff give generously of their time and resources to sponsor and/or participate in several programs for the underserved in other countries.
