About Advanced Dental Therapy

Due to a lack of accessible dental care, in 2008 the Minnesota Legislature authorized licensure of the Advanced Dental Therapist. To prepare individuals for this role, Metropolitan State University developed the Master of Science in Advanced Dental Therapy and opened the clinic in January 2012.

Upon graduation, Advanced Dental Therapists agree to work for the following patient populations:

  • Underserved patients
  • Low income patients
  • Uninsured patients
  • Patients residing in dental health professional shortage areas
