Dental Explorers Program

Every summer, the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC welcomes undergraduates interested in pursuing a career in dentistry to the Dental Explorers Program. The goal of this program is to assist in the development of a diverse pool of future professionals by introducing talented students, especially those from historically underrepresented, low socioeconomic and/or disadvantaged backgrounds to the dental profession. Priority consideration is given to college freshman, sophomores and juniors.


If accepted into the program, there will be a $40 fee to secure your spot.


Age Requirement:
All participants must be 18 years or older by July 1, 2023.


Applications will be available in mid-May
