Academic Partners

In addition to our community service, TCDC functions as a teaching facility for future oral health professions students.

TCDC maintains collaborative academic partnerships with:

UCLA School of Dentistry 

These partnerships have the dual purpose of: 1) delivering care to our patients in a “real world” setting, and 2) stimulating a social awareness among new professionals about the extent of oral and overall health discrepancies among our diverse population groups and the importance of “giving back to the community” to eliminate those differences.

In order to discuss the possibility of becoming an academic partner, please contact Dennis Young at 310.419.3000 or via email
