50 Years of Innovation at the School of Dental Medicine

The School Celebrates this Major Milestone

The University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine turned 50 in 2023. CU SDM, formerly the School of Dentistry, was established in 1973 by an amendment to the state constitution and is the only dental school in Colorado.
In honor of our 50th anniversary, we will commemorate the year with a weeklong celebration in the fall.
