A Look Into MSSU’s MKEAP Dentistry Program

MSSU Dental Program

Amidst the vast options of Missouri Southern State University’s academic offerings, a groundbreaking dental program has emerged, ushering in a new era of young dentists. Mirroring the structure of the well-known MKEAP medical program, this MKEAP dentistry program allows for students to accelerate their undergraduate journey, completing their studies in a remarkable three years. However, unlike its medical MKEAP program counterpart, participants in the dental program will receive early acceptance to Kansas City University’s dental school, allowing a seamless transition from undergrad to KCU dental school.

The advantages of the new dental program extend far beyond its accelerated path. With automatic acceptance to KCU dental school and full tuition coverage for both in-state and out-of-state students, aspiring dentists are presented with an unparalleled opportunity for

academic and professional growth. Moreover, the program has a vast curriculum encompassing a diverse array of science and STEM courses, providing students with a full comprehensive educational experience. Access to innovative technology, such as the state-of-the-art human simulation center, further enhances the learning environment, offering students invaluable hands-on experience and research opportunities.

Victoria Rhodes, Director of MKEAP, expresses her enthusiasm for the program’s launch, highlighting the significance of early acceptance opportunities in dentistry. “I am thrilled as we have just finished interviewing for our first cohort for the MKEAP dental program,” she remarks. “Early acceptance programs for dental schools are few and far between, and I am proud that MSSU can offer students another avenue for a lower-stress route to dentistry. Our MKEAP model for medicine has worked well to prepare our students for success, and I believe this solid foundation will mirror the success we will see in upcoming years for our dental track. I am looking forward to seeing this program grow into a sought-after destination for aspiring dentists.”

With the inclusion of Missouri Southern State University’s New Dentistry Program, students will have access to the essential features and resources of the program as they begin their dental journey.
