William K. Lobb, D.D.S., M.S., M.P.H.Welcome! I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Marquette University School of Dentistry website. The School of Dentistry has been a significant provider of oral health care to patients and an excellent clinically based dental education to dental students for more than 100 years. 

We are committed to providing the best comprehensive oral health care to our patients in a “patient-centered” environment, whether it is at our main clinic site or in any outreach site that our students and faculty provide care.  We are also committed to providing our students with an integrated, patient-based dental education that focuses on clinical excellence and reflects current knowledge, research and practice of dentistry.

We will continue to build on our strengths and serve the needs of our patients, students and alumni for many years to come. We believe that you will enjoy your visit with us and trust that it will meet all of your needs.
