Students and affiliate faculty

In our school’s new curriculum, students will benefit from significantly higher numbers of patients and procedures during third and fourth year. It also imposes greater demands on faculty coverage of clinics. To meet that demand, we ask alumni and other Washington dentists to volunteer as affiliate faculty members.


The need is especially acute for faculty coverage in the new fourth-year general practice model. However, dentists are also needed to cover the third-year diagnosis and treatment planning clerkship along with the prosthodontics-periodontics clerkship and the operative dentistry clerkship. More dentists are also needed to cover the Dental Urgent Care Clinic and the DECOD special-needs clinic.

While general dentists are sought for the most part, a need also exists for specialists including prosthodontists, periodontists and endodontists.


If you are a Washington licensed dentist who’d like to devote a half-day a week or more as a member of our affiliate faculty, please contact Christina Wee (cwee@uw.edu) in our Dean’s office. Join us and help shape the future of dental education at one of the world’s leading dental schools.
