Concurrent DDS & MPH Degree Program

The Program in Public Health at Stony Brook offers a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree, which can be obtained with the DDS degree.

Admission Requirements

Applicants who wish to be considered for admission into the concurrent DDS & MPH degree program must apply separately to both the School of Dental Medicine and Program in Public Health. Applicants will be reviewed and admitted to each program separately. Once approved by both the School of Dental Medicine and MPH Admissions Committees, the student will be designated as a concurrent degree candidate. The Program in Public Health strongly encourages students to apply after admission into the School of Dental Medicine.  The Program in Public Health will accept applications from DDS students at any time but applicants are strongly encouraged to apply to the MPH program no later than the end of their first year in dental school.

Applicants applying for admission to both the Program in Public Health (PPH) and the School of Dental Medicine (SDM):

  • The application process for the PPH is separate from the application to the Stony Brook SDM. Admission to one program is determined independently from admission to the other; and admission to one program does not guarantee admission to the other.
  • To avoid the need to send supporting documents to both programs, Stony Brook SDM applicants who also apply to the PPH can request in writing that the SDM provide to the PPH a copy of their support documents including DAT scores, official transcripts from all post-secondary schools, and letters of recommendation for their application for admission to the PPH.
  • SDM applicants who apply to the PPH must provide one additional reference that addresses the applicant's public health leadership potential.

A limited number of DDS students can be admitted to the MPH program and will be eligible for applicable tuition waivers. For more information about the MPH Tuition Waiver please speak with the Assistant Director for Student Affairs.
