Our faculty, staff, student, and patient populations are growing rapidly as we live out our vision to educate the next generation of primary care dentists with a focus on serving rural and underserved areas of North Carolina.?

This 188,000 square-foot facility is named for its benefactor and retired Greenville orthodontist Dr. Ledyard E. Ross, ECU class of ’51. Ross Hall houses state-of-the-art learning halls, simulation labs, patient clinics, clinical research areas, and faculty and administrative offices.?

Across North Carolina

The State of North Carolina has funded the ECU School of Dental Medicine in building stand-alone dental facilities called Community Service Learning Centers (CSLCs) in eight rural and underserved areas across the state, including Ahoskie, Brunswick County, Elizabeth City, Davidson County, Lillington, Robeson County, Spruce Pine, and Sylva.?

Community Service Learning Centers are staffed by full-time and part-time faculty, residents, fourth-year students, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and business staff. The centers provide hands-on experience for advanced students and residents while also providing access to oral health care for more North Carolinians. ?


Apple Corporation named the ECU School of Dental Medicine an Apple Distinguished Program due to the innovative implementation of technology in student learning and teledentistry.
