Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC Annual Report


DEAR FRIENDS, It is an honor to share with you our 2011 Annual Report. This new publication has been designed to provide all Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC community members a clear, multifaceted understanding of the state of our School. As the content in this report illustrates, the Ostrow School of Dentistry is a solid, influential institution and a vital part of USC. With a fully balanced annual operating budget of $105 million, the School ranks fifth among USC’s 19 academic institutions in financial size. Our faculty and staff are also involved in decision making at the University level, including the Budget Steering Committee and the dean search committee for the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. In the past few years, our School has undergone many positive changes, including a streamlined curriculum, an increase in our on-time graduation rate to more than 90 percent, dramatic improvements to clinical and educational facilities, and the recruitment of more expert faculty. Many of these great developments were made possible by the insight and support of alumni and friends. Guiding the Ostrow School of Dentistry is an immense responsibility that I and the other members of the School’s administrative team are privileged to bear. Thousands of alumni, current students, faculty and staff members, and friends of the School trust us to uphold this institution’s eminent reputation and prepare it for whatever the years ahead may bring. This enormous amount of trust further cements our commitment to transparency and clear communication at all times regarding issues and decisions that affect the School. I highly encourage all of you to stay in touch with the School; your questions, comments, and views are always deeply appreciated. I want to thank you for your involvement with and support of the Ostrow School of Dentistry as we continue on the path to a brilliant future.

This is a home For Visionaries.

Admissions We are privileged to entertain a large, dynamic pool of applicants. Our selection process is as much an art as it is a science. We look for potential, promise, and passion. We seek the scholar and the scientist, the clinician and the community health provider. We take extreme care to thoughtfully consider each application in its entirety using a whole-file review. In doing so, we want to learn what motivates applicants and what special gifts they might bring with them. We celebrate the full diversity of our students—variations in ethnicity, gender, and geographic background as well as thought, experience, and interests. Our goal is to ensure that all of our students are able to excel academically, socially, and culturally.

“I’m often asked what is so special about USC and the Dental School. The short answer—it’s the people. It’s our dedicated group of faculty and staff, our terrific alumni who bring us great distinction each day, and, of course, it’s our students who are so full of possibilities for the future.” Sandra Bolivar, J.D. Assistant Dean for Admissions, Minority and Student Life

IT IS OUR duty to provide care to underserved communities.

Community Health In the 1960s, almost 40 years before the Surgeon General’s groundbreaking report on dental health care disparities, the Ostrow School of Dentistry was already tackling underserved communities. What began as a single clinic in Watts, Calif. has grown to a fleet of mobile dental clinics, fixed satellite clinics such as the USC-Union Rescue Mission on Los Angeles’ Skid Row, and a variety of school-based programs teaching children the importance of proper dental care. It is with these programs that we have reached nearly 65,000 patients in the past year alone and plan to continue providing dental care as long as it eludes so many.

“My passion is caring for women and children, teaching them, and helping them in any way I can. I am a strong believer that knowledge is power, and the more you know, the better your life will be.” Carmen Diaz Promotora Health Educator Ostrow School of Dentistry Community, Oral Health Programs Diaz was the recipient of the 2011 DENTSPLY/Harold Slavkin Oral Health Science Education Award from the Friends of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

SEVEN Million

In 2011, our community-based programs provided dental care to nearly 65,000 patients. These services totaled more than $7 million.

10,000 Children

Our mobile dental clinics address the oral health care needs of nearly 10,000 children from urban and rural low-income communities each year.

With tens of thousands living on the streets of Downtown L.A., USC operates one of the only dental school-operated clinics in the nation specifically addressing the oral health care needs of the homeless.

Accessibility is the cornerstone of prevention.

PATIENT CARE At the Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC we provide a wide range of oral health services at affordable rates. From routine check-ups and cleanings in our dental hygiene clinic to in-depth dental treatment in our nine specialty clinics, the Ostrow School of Dentistry provides dental care to a population who might not otherwise have access to the dentist’s chair.

“CAD/CAM [computer-aided design and computeraided manufacturing] allows the dentist to perform true ‘digital’ dentistry. Pictures can be taken of a prepared tooth, or multiple teeth, and restorations can be fabricated in less than 20 minutes. CAD/CAM is the future of dentistry. We want to prepare our students not just for the present, but for the future.” Richard Lin, DDS ’02, PROS ’08 Assistant Professor of Clinical Dentistry The School has 27 CAD/CAM units, giving students the opportunity for substantial hands-on experience with the technology.

We are committed to investing every dollar strategically to have the greatest impact.

Even as higher-education costs rise, the Ostrow School of Dentistry is dedicated to curbing tuition increases to continue recruiting the best and brightest students. To that end, we rely on a greater variety of channels to cover the School’s operating budget. One area of targeted growth in 2012 is alumni giving. The reasons nearly 20 percent of our alumni say they financially support the school vary. Some want to support future Trojans. Others want to ensure we continue providing greater dental health care access to underserved communities. Whatever the reason, we strategically invest our resources to have the greatest impact on our school and its student clinicians.
