About us

Professor with students and patient

The Department of General Practice at Virginia Commonwealth University exhibits the profile of a dynamic, experienced, devoted and diverse faculty. This department embraces the uniqueness of individuals and the belief that the learning process continues throughout life. This is based on a sincere love and respect for all.

We are dedicated to improving oral health while fostering the quest of knowledge and advancing the education process. This department is comprised of staff personnel, full time professors and the support of numerous community based adjunct faculty members committed to the pursuit of these ideals.

We value the experience of patient care clinicians as well as the commitment to research. Our teaching methods include the latest technologies and are as basic as the human touch with sponsorships of local and international humanitarian dental missions.

The Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene program administratively resides within the department.

The Department of General Practice believes that our strength comes from the composite of our experiences. We are dedicated to providing the best of care for our patients, the best of educational experiences for our students and the most stimulating and satisfying environment for our colleagues and staff.
