The Office of Academic Affairs closely oversees the various educational programs and supports academic excellence at the UNC School of Dentistry. A full and diverse array of programs is offered at the school: dentistry (DDS degree), advanced dental education (three certificate programs, nine Master of Science degree programs and two PhD programs) and allied dental health (dental hygiene and dental assisting). Office of Academic Affairs staff members often participate in the admissions process, implement curriculum reviews and accreditation, and manage school events such as white coat ceremonies and commencement.

In addition, the Office of Academic Affairs provides a variety of services for both current and prospective students. The office offers pre-admission evaluations for prospective DDS students, assists current students with any number of issues and advocates for the student body to ensure needs are met.
