Advisory Council


About the NYU College of Dentistry Dean's Strategic Advisory Council

The goal of the Advisory Council is to bring together national thought leaders from dental and related healthcare industries for the purpose of analyzing and acting upon pressing issues facing the dental profession. These include high student indebtedness, new players providing traditional dental services, changes in the dentist-payee relationship, our aging population and their increasingly medically-complex needs, and rapidly changing technology. All these issues affect our ability to recruit and educate the best students who in turn will help define the way dentistry is practiced in the future.

As the largest, most comprehensive, oral health education, research, and patient care center in the world, NYU Dentistry strives to play a meaningful role in addressing these diverse challenges. We seek to partner with our colleagues in the private sector, whose expertise we consider essential in devising solutions prepare the profession to meet current and future challenges.

Spring 2017 Meeting:
