The mantra Dr. Dillenberg teaches all of his dental students and staff is, “There’s a person attached to that tooth, a family attached to that person and a community attached to that family,” says Dr. Jack Dillenberg the Inaugural Dean at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health.
The focus of his program is to expose students to the some of the most underserved in the U.S.
If there is one thing that you need to know about Dr. Dillenberg, it’s the importance of relationships. At ASDOH, the focus is on the relationships built between practitioners and students, students and patients, and staff and students. Dr. Dillenberg says, “We’re training health-care providers, not tooth technicians.”
It is the goal of the school to expose students to a variety of experiences and to expose them to some of the most underserved in the U.S. It is the hope that, “These students will go out and practice in underserved communities throughout Arizona and the country,” says Dr. Dillenberg.
