News and Events

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.

COVID-19 Contact Tracing

COVID-19 alert

Marquette University School of Dentistry is committed to protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We are carefully monitoring the developments related to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Nevertheless, COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus and the danger it can pose to vulnerable populations demands that we take precautions to protect all members of our Marquette community.

Call (414) 288-6790, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to speak with a representative or schedule your initial screening consultation. Patients of record with a dental emergency can contact their assigned student or the group coordinator.

Current patients that have an emergency outside of regular business hours may contact our After-Hours emergency service at (262) 521-4997.

Beginning Monday, April 12, we will begin our emergency walk-in service for people in the community who need emergency care. Patients may arrive after 8 a.m. (Monday-Friday) to receive one of the four available times for emergency care.  While we will generally see four patients per day, that number may vary depending on our availability.  Appointments will no longer be made for emergency services.

Please note, patients may not enter the building before 8:00 a.m. and may be asked to leave the campus if they attempt to do so.

  • Virtual Graduation - Class of 2020

  • Please see message and special tribute sent to the Class of 2020.

    Greetings Class of 2020. We are happy to share this special tribute to the Class of 2020. This is not how any of us envisioned your Marquette graduation celebration from the School of Dentistry; we all wish it could have been different. And, while this is not meant in any way to replace that celebration, we hope it will serve as a sincere reminder of your final dental school days.

    We wish you all the very best and hope we have an opportunity to reconnect with you, the Class of 2020 at future alumni events. Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving on behalf of the School of Dentistry.
