Leaders across New Jersey welcomed a new era in higher education July 1, 2013, as the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act became effective. The Act integrates most of the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey into Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, including University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Dental School (UMDNJ).
The dental school is now officially the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. The school’s leadership recommended the new name to reflect that dentistry is a profession founded in biomedical science. The new name more closely aligns with today’s dental education and practice.
