Fulfill Personal & Societal Goals

A faculty position that brings you into the NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine network is a unique career choice. Yes, you will take your place on an acclaimed staff dedicated to molding the next generation of successful, dedicated, and ethical dental practitioners. But you will also be doing your part to bring oral health care to marginalized populations, thanks to the pioneering education model established by NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine more than four decades ago.

NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine currently has over 650 full-time and part-time faculty positions at ADA-CODA accredited sites at community health centers, hospitals, mobile dental units and other clinical settings across the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. A wide variety of new positions continually arise to keep pace with our expanding networks and growing postdoctoral residency programs. Our preference is to operate our programs on a faculty to studient ratio as large as 3:1 faculty in many regions to enhance the quality of the didactic and clinical components of the educational experience for both students and faculty.

Many of our faculty members also own and run private practices, hold faculty positions at prestigious universities and dental schools, and are actively involved in dental associations and government-appointed policy-making boards. We are proud to count among our educators many who have received lifetime achievement awards, practitioner awards and are high profile advocates in governmental policy changes to provide equitable dental services worldwide.

As a faculty member, you will have the opportunity to receive advanced faculty development training leading to certification or a Master's Degree in dental education through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

You will also have the opportunity to sponsor and lead global dental mission trips with your colleagues and students.
