History[edit]

Tufts College Dental and Medical Building 1907

Founded on June 3, 1868 as Boston Dental College by Dr. Isaac J. Wetherbee, a graduate of the first organized dental university in the United States, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery.[8] The college was incorporated into Tufts College in 1899 and was located at 416 Huntington Avenue in Boston. By 1929, Tufts Medical and Dental College began an affiliation with the Boston Floating Hospital for Infants and Children, as well as the Boston Dispensary. This merger resulted in the creation of an association known as the New England Medical Center (NEMC), which would be the name of the hospital attached to the current day Tufts Dental School until the 1990s. The union was partially caused by the fire, and subsequent destruction of the USS Boston Floating Hospital (ID # 2366), a mobile hospital for sick children on Boston Harbor.[9] In 1948, Tufts Medical and Dental College sold the Huntington Avenue buildings to Northeastern University, and relocated closer to NEMC at 136 Harrison Avenue. In 1954, Tufts Dental College became the "Tufts University School of Dental Medicine".[citation needed] The school would remain at the Harrison Avenue location until 1971, when it was moved to its current location, 1 Kneeland Street. The building was only 10 floors in height, but was designed with future expansion in mind. In 2009, the building was expanded by 5 floors, vertically. This was seen by the architectural world as unprecedented; the design and execution has won several architectural awards.[10] In 2013, the University announced plans to refurbish the third and fourth clinical floors, to match the newly renovated second floor.

Admissions[edit]

For the 2018-2019 application cycle, 4,094 applications were received for the 202 seats available in the Class of 2023. The DAT Academic Average was 20, and the Total Science was 20. [11]

While in the past international applicants were considered for admission to the School of Dental Medicine, for the 2012-2013 application cycle those applicants without US citizenship or permanent residency will not be considered for the DMD program.[12]

Student class profile[edit]

Tufts Dental Building in Boston from the South

There are approximately 4000 applicants each year and roughly 200 students enrolled per class, making it the second largest dental school in the United States. The Class of 2015 had an average age of 24; ranging from 21-38. The class was composed of students from 29 states.[5]

The School has over 7,000 alumni composed of individuals from all fifty states and thirty-nine countries.[13] Nearly half of the Class of 2015 identifies as Asian (45%) and 49% of the Class is female.[14]

Curriculum[edit]

The curriculum of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine (TUSDM) is a competency based curriculum. The D.M.D. program, which extends over a four-year period, consists of a series of:

  1. didactic (lecture and seminar)
  2. patient simulation (patient simulation clinic, introductory clinical experience, and workshop)
  3. clinical (group practice, rotations and Community Service Learning Externship) experiences.[15]

Facilities[edit]

In 2009, Tufts Dental completed a $68 million, five-floor vertical expansion. The vertical expansion houses two new clinical patient floors, a new 108-chair simulation lab and teaching facilities for students, as well as a Continuing Education conference center and administrative offices.

Tufts University School of Dental Medicine pre-clinical simulation laboratory

The design for the five-story expansion, by ARC/Architectural Resources Cambridge, integrates contemporary forms and materials within the framework of the existing building. In contrast to the heavier forms of the existing structure, the vertical addition uses a glass and aluminum curtain wall system and white metal panels, which is extended to the street level. The existing egress stair at the corner of the building has also been transformed into a glass beacon that marks the gateway to the Tufts Health Sciences Boston Campus.

The project includes updates to the entire building’s infrastructure, incorporating new elevators and updated life safety systems, as well as a new generator.

Tufts University School of Dental Medicine five-story Vertical Expansion

Additionally, the expansion has helped different departments work together more effectively with the use of two internal stairs, one connecting the clinical floors and a second connecting the administrative and Continuing Education departments.[16]

Research[edit]

Areas of research at Tufts Dental include: Bone Remodeling, Sjögren’s Syndrome: Dry Mouth and Dry Eye, Dental Materials, Division of Public Health Research and Oral Medicine, Public Health and Community Service, Craniofacial and Molecular Genetics, Integrated Tissue Engineering, Biostatistics, Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry, TMD and Orofacial Pain.[17]

Student organizations[edit]

The School of Dental Medicine has over 20 student organizations. Some of the organizations present at Tufts Dental include: Delta Sigma Delta (DSD), American Student Dental Association (ASDA), and the Bates Student Research Group.[18]

American Student Dental Association (ASDA)

The American Student Dental Association was established in 1971 to represent, serve and support the needs and interests of dental students. As a national professional organization, ASDA provides a forum for expression of dental student concerns. ASDA currently has more than 14,000 predoctoral members at each of the 55 U.S. dental school chapters.

Bates-Student Research Group

The Bates Student Research Group (SRG) is a student-run organization that promotes student research in dentistry and its related disciplines. Our main purpose is to foster an environment whereby students interested in enriching their dental education through research are encouraged to do so.

Dean of the School of Dental Medicine[edit]

Dr. Nadeem Karimbux has been named the 17th Dean of School of Dental Medicine on July 2019. Dr. Karimbux has been the associate dean for academic affairs and a professor of periodontology at the School of Dental Medicine since 2012. Born and raised in Nakuru, Kenya, Karimbux received his undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Harvard School of Dental Medicine. He also earned a Master’s of Medical Science in oral biology and Graduate Certificate in periodontology from Harvard School of Dental Medicine.[19]

Dental School Vlog: Interview in Boston (Tufts School of Dental Medicine)

Tufts University is laying off or furloughing nearly 20 percent of its dental school employees in the institution’s first staff cuts due to the pandemic.

Blaming a decline in revenue from its clinics, the dental school said Tuesday it will lay off 77 faculty and staff, put another 26 workers on furlough for four months, and suspend a dental hygiene program that it provides to low-income students in the Boston, Lynn, Lowell, and Lawrence public schools.

The Tufts dental school employs 560 faculty and staff. Before the pandemic, the school saw 625 patients a day in its clinics, but that was greatly reduced during the state shutdown, when only one clinic remained open to served 12 emergency patients a day.

Even as parts of the state have reopened, social distancing requirements and safety measures have continued to keep patient numbers down, Tufts officials said.

As a result, the dental school faced $22 million in losses, driven mostly by reduced revenue from its clinics. The school had closed its budget gap through previous cost saving measures, Tufts officials said, but a significant deficit remained, requiring Tuesday’s further cuts. 

“Although it managed to maintain emergency care for its clients — and indeed was the only dental school in the Boston area to do so — the loss of revenue from the clinics has been substantial,” Nadine Aubry, Tufts provost, and Mike Howard, the university’s executive vice president, said in an e-mail to staff.

Tuesday’s cuts are limited to the dental school, Tufts officials said.

Colleges in Massachusetts and across the country have been cutting staff and faculty this past summer. More layoffs are likely as a clearer picture emerges of how many students enroll in classes this fall, and how much room and board revenue institutions will lose because they have been forced to teach online instead of bringing undergraduates to campus.

In recent months, Boston University announced plans to lay off or furlough about 250 employees as part of its plan to close a $96 million budget gap. Springfield Technical Community College is eliminating seven entire programs, including biomedical engineering technology. The University of Massachusetts Boston informed as many as 325 lecturers that their contracts for the fall may not be renewed and furloughed about 50 staff and 30 administrators.

Dentistry in particular has been hard hit by the pandemic, said the school’s dean Nadeem Karimbux, in a message to the school’s staff.

“We were forced by the pandemic to close our clinics, with the exception of emergency care; to move some of our instruction to an online educational model; and to ramp down our research,” Karimbux said. “We all have worked to make sense of and adapt to a new understanding of our world.”

Meanwhile, the school also had to spend money on plexiglass barriers, significant changes to the heating and air-conditioning systems, more protective gear, and other safety measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, Tufts officials said.

The dental school decided to suspend at least for one year certain programs, such as the community clinics for at-risk students, because it anticipated that with some schools closed, it would be difficult to see the young patients.

Tufts, however, will keep the Boston-based Josiah Quincy community hygiene program in Chinatown open.

“Our priority throughout this process has been maintaining the quality of our core education, clinical, and research missions,” Karimbux said. “We are confident that the education and care we provide, and the research we conduct, will continue to be of the highest quality.”

Dentistry boston tufts

At least six of Ing’s male colleagues have been promoted to full professor since she was denied the opportunity, according to the complaint, which asserts that none were more qualified than her.

“This is a case in which Dr. Ing stood up for what she believed in, spoke up, fought back, and she was punished for that,” said Mitchell Notis, Ing’s attorney.

A Tufts spokesman, Patrick Collins, said the school couldn’t comment on the lawsuit, filed in US District Court, but said in a statement: “Tufts University prohibits discrimination, including sexual misconduct and retaliation for engaging in any protected activity, against any member of its community.”

Ing, a graduate of Tufts’ dental school and a faculty member since 2011, said she endured yearsof unwanted attention from Roland Vanaria, an assistant professor of prosthodontics. But his inappropriate gestures and comments intensified while he was going through a divorce, Ing said.

Ing’s supervisor told her that Vanaria wanted to ask her out, and when he did, she turned him down. But he persisted, asking her to “have monkey business” with him, waiting for her in the conference room adjoining her office at the end of the day, and staring at her body, according to the complaint. He told her, “Come on, lift up your lab coat,” and slapped his thigh as he said, “Come on, hon, why don’t you sit on my lap?”

Ing complained to her supervisor multiple times, and in June, the school began a “severely flawed investigation,” according to the lawsuit. In November, a month after allegations against the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein came to light, the Tufts investigator accused Ing of trying to capitalize on the fledgling #MeToo movement, the suit states, and said Ing complained only after finding out that another female faculty member had previously complained about Vanaria.

Ing said the investigator asked her inappropriate questions that seemed to downplay her allegations, including: “Was he staring at you from three feet away, six feet away, or 10 feet away?”

Vanaria, 72, who taught part time at Tufts from 2008 until 2019, when his contract wasn’t renewed, said the accusations against him were “all BS.” At the time of Ing’s allegations, Vanaria said, he had been going through an unhappy divorce, and Ing was also experiencing personal difficulties. “I just asked her out to dinner. She said no, and I never spoke to her again,” he said.

Vanaria had one 20-minute conversation with the Tufts investigator, he said, then never heard anything more. Last summer, Vanaria sold his dental practice of 30 years in Newton.

In 2018, Ing applied for the rank of full professor for the first time, and after a “hostile” review in which her supervisor told her he didn’t believe the number of extracurricular hours she worked and threatened to keep her from being Tufts’ representative at a conference where she gave a presentation every year, according to court documents, Ing was denied the promotion.

In 2019, she was prevented from applying for a promotion, the suit states, as requirements for full professorship “continually shifted” and the new department chair refused to endorse her, despite her extensive research on celiac disease and winning and being nominated for several teaching and leadership awards.

Ing said that after reporting Vanaria’s behavior, she was bullied and ostracized by her peers and by leadership. At one point, the department chair asked Ing how often she was attending sexual harassment therapy and said she “needed to go more often,” according to the lawsuit.

In academia, there is a “perceived tolerance” for sexual harassment, according to a 2018 report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, which notes an earlier study’s finding that 58 percent of female faculty and staff reported experiencing sexual harassment, the second-highest industry rate after the military. In science, medicine, and engineering — fields long dominated by men — female faculty who experienced harassment said that male colleagues’ inappropriate behavior was often ignored or minimized, particularly if they were part of the “old guard” whose conduct had been excused for years.

The Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, part of the National Women’s Law Center in Washington, arranged for a local public relations firm to promote Ing’s case as it seeks to spotlight cases that involve alleged retaliation and take place in heavily male environments, including in STEM fields such as dentistry, said director Sharyn Tejani. More than seven in 10 people who reported being sexually harassed at work said they faced retaliation, including being terminated or denied promotions, according to a 2020 report by the National Women’s Law Center,because they are often seen as troublemakers and complainers, Tejani said.

Ing, who said she has been on medical leave for more than a year due to stress and anxiety caused by the situation at Tufts, felt compelled to speak up because she knows she’s not alone.

“I feel like my experience is similar to countless other women in my field and other fields, and beyond, and we all really need to stand together and not let a powerful school like Tufts silence us,” she said. “This is a very lonely journey.”

Dental School Vlog: Interview in Boston (Tufts School of Dental Medicine)

Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston is laying off 77 employees — and slashing the hours for other workers — after the coronavirus pandemic caused a major budget shortfall, the school announced on Tuesday.

Altogether, 195 employees will be affected by the cuts that include layoffs, furloughs, fewer hours, reduced salaries, retirements and other departures.

It’s the latest Massachusetts school that has faced layoffs and furloughs amid the devastating coronavirus crisis.

Tufts’ dental school has been particularly hard hit by the impact of the virus, forcing the school to suspend its clinic operations in March, officials wrote.

Before the coronavirus shutdown, the clinics at the dental school served about 625 patients each day. But then during the shutdown, the only clinic open – the school’s emergency clinic — provided care to an average of 12 patients each day.

Clinic operations continue to be significantly reduced, partially as a result of physical distancing requirements and other safety measures, according to officials who anticipate that clinic operations will be reduced for some time to come.

Facing a significant budget deficit, the school took several cost-cutting measures — including hiring freezes, pay freezes, voluntary salary reductions by the dean and school leadership, and other steps. But it wasn’t enough.

“Today, with a heavy heart, I am confirming that TUSDM (Tufts University School of Dental Medicine) will be taking the necessary steps to address the drop in clinical revenues,” TUSDM Dean Nadeem Karimbux wrote to Tufts faculty and staff on Tuesday.

“For a school like ours — where our people are central to our mission of education, clinical care, and research — this decision was extremely difficult to even contemplate,” Karimbux later added. “We are a community that provides care to others, and that means caring about each other as well. It will be hard for all of us and will be hardest for those in our community who have to leave the school.”

The university is providing separation benefits for those who have been laid off.

As part of the reductions, the school is suspending its Community Hygiene Program, the Hygiene Center and the Dental Faculty Practice at least through this year.
