Because she is enrolled on an ROTC scholarship, Angela will also be an Air Force captain and practice dentistry on a U.S. base. “Everything I’ve done through the Air Force has been awesome, she says. “I learned about strengths I didn’t ” know I had. Like jumping out of an airplane as part of ” her reserve training. Angela wanted to become a den- tist after seeing the impact her father has on patients’ lives.

  5. 5. Marquette University is at the forefront of dental education E very step you take in our four-year program will be guided by faculty and practicing professionals who uphold Marquette’s vision: to train highly skilled oral health care practitioners to bring top quality dental care to urban and rural communities across the country — and around the world. Our beautiful 120,000-square-foot dental school and clinic — Wisconsin’s only — offers the most advanced clinical resources and instructional technology available, supporting a dramatically different, one-of-a kind curriculum developed by our faculty to better prepare students for dental practice and patient care. What does all this mean to you? For starters, you’ll learn and practice in a patient-centered environment that resembles the real world of dentistry, one that will help you understand the link between oral and physical health. You’ll attend fewer traditional lectures because more of your time will be spent working with patients. You’ll participate in university outreach programs at urban, rural and special-patient clinics, getting firsthand experience in public health. You’ll begin refining hand skills your first year. You’ll also be immersed in a rigorous learning model that combines training in advanced dental practices with access to faculty experts committed to advancing dental knowledge through their own innovative research. Marquette University School of Dentistry Bottom line? You’ll be prepared to enter practice, immediately upon graduation. Another reason to consider Marquette University is our Catholic, Jesuit tradition. Marquette’s School of Dentistry is a professional school at the gateway of one of the country’s most reputable universities. We’re an urban campus, right next door to downtown Milwaukee — one of America’s most livable cities. 1

  7. 7. Our Dental School and Clinic O ur building reflects the way we want to train you. It’s designed and built to support our multidisciplinary curriculum, serving patients from the community we’re located in. It’s also a support center for dental professionals throughout Wisconsin. As a student, here’s what you’ll have access to: • Eight 12-chair practice operatories designed to resemble and function like small, private dental offices • A pre-clinical simulation laboratory where first- and second-year students practice their hand skills on high-tech mannequins • Specialty-care clinics designed for pediatric dentistry, advanced care, surgical services and graduate prosthodontic, orthodontic and endodontic programs • Leading dental researchers whose questions and discoveries are revealing new treatment options • Centralized clinics with adjoining teaching space for general dentistry rounds • Large lecture hall and adjacent break-out space offering the latest in presentation technology • Clinical-research and faculty-practice facilities • A technology-testing center exhibiting next-generation dental equipment and products • An information center used to develop the newest and best distance learning and teledentistry technology, connecting dental professionals worldwide to Marquette for lifelong learning Dental rounds room Orthodontic dentistry clinic 3 Pre-clinical simulation laboratory

It’s definitely an environment to grow in.” Dr. Christopher Okunseri Assistant professor and program director of public health, Dr. Okunseri is also a researcher whose interests include oral epidemiology, health service and behavioral science as they relate to racial and ethnic minority populations. Since Okunseri joined Marquette, his focus has been identifying the impact, severity and prevention of oral disease in the Hmong population. Why Marquette? “I saw a lot of potential here. It’s definitely an environment to grow in, he says. In addition to his research, Okunseri ” works at the faculty dental practice one day a week treating patients. He also is a member of several dental associations, is widely published and mentors post- and pre-doctoral dental students. Whether it’s patients or students, “I am constantly engaged in teaching, he says. ” 5

So after completing his undergraduate work in Los Angeles, the Phoenix native headed to Marquette to participate in courses offered by the university’s Health Careers Opportunity Program, applied to dental school, got accepted and hasn’t looked back. Passionate about business too, McGuire also plans to get an M.B.A. after his dental degree then go back home to practice. “There aren’t that many African American men in business, let alone the medical and dental professions,” he says. “I owe something to the community that raised me.” 8

  15. 15. “We want to make the clinic experience come alive for students.” Dr. Sheila Stover, Dent ‘97 Dr. Sheila Stover, director of rural outreach programs at Marquette University School of Dentistry, supervises third- and fourth-year dental students and postgraduate residents doing rotations at rural dental clinics throughout Wisconsin. And she travels anywhere from 200 to 650 miles four days a week to do it. An endodontist, Dr. Stover is also in private practice and a clinical assistant professor at Marquette. One goal of the program she heads is to introduce dental students to disadvan- taged patient populations in need of dental care. “We want to make the clinic experience come alive for students, she says. ” “Working at rural outreach clinics helps them expand on what they learn in the classroom by applying it. ” Marquette University Dental Outreach Clinic Affiliations Health Education Center Dental Clinic, Chippewa Valley Technical College Tri-County Community Clinic, Fox Valley Technical College Marshfield Clinic Ladysmith Dental Center Ministry Dental Clinic, St. Michael's Hospital in Stevens Point Marquette University School of Dentistry Clinic Isaac Coggs Community Health Center, serving a primarily elderly African American population Matthew Keenan Dental Clinic, serving a Hispanic population
  16. 16. “Because I’d had such a good experience, I wanted to give that back” Dr. Kate Gilson, Arts ’96, Dent ‘99 Dr. Gene Shoemaker, Arts ’83, Dent ‘89 Raised in Oshkosh, Wis., Dr. Gene Shoemaker began practicing general dentistry immediately after graduating from Marquette. A few years later, he bought a 2,500-patient practice in Waukesha, Wis. With the Wisconsin Dental Association, Dr. Shoemaker helped develop the Marquette School of Dentistry’s Mentorship Program, which matches dentists from around the state with Marquette dental students. That’s how he met Kate Gilson, also from Oshkosh, after becoming her mentor her freshman year. A few years after Dr. Gilson finished her residency, she became a partner in Shoemaker’s dental practice. “We’d known each other for seven years and I knew she had received an outstanding education, ” he says. “It was a natural fit. Today, Dr. Gilson herself is a mentor to ” Marquette dental students. “Because I’d had such a good experience, I wanted to give that back, she says. ”
  17. 17. Marquette University There are many facets of Marquette University that make this the best place to pursue your dental education.

  18. 18. Milwaukee, Wisconsin Two waterfronts W hether you’re on a bike, scooter, skates or your own feet, the parks and beaches of Milwaukee’s lakefront are the place to get away without having to go far. The lakefront is also the home to Summerfest, which, for 10 days in summer, is the center of the music world with thousands of acts from country and metal to hip-hop and pop. Just 10 blocks from campus, lazily winding its way through the city, is the Milwaukee River. Skirting its edges is the RiverWalk, where you’ll find brew pubs, parks and Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, a warehouse district converted into some of the city’s best new shops, restaurants and living spaces. Whether you’re catching big acts at Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival, or smaller ones at Shank Hall, a club on the city’s East Side inspired by the movie This is Spinal Tap, you’ll never run out of places to hear great music in Milwaukee. If musicals are your thing, head to the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, a regular stop of all touring Broadway shows. 14
  19. 19. Sit among hundreds of fluttering butterflies in the Milwaukee Public Museum’s butterfly exhibit. When you’re done there, head over to the museum’s giant IMAX theatre or Discovery World — The James Lovell Museum of Science, Economics and Technology, named by NBC’s Today Show as one of the nation’s top five interactive museums. Paris has the Eiffel Tower. New York has the Empire State Building. Milwaukee has the Quadracci Pavilion, designed by world renowned architect Santiago Calatrava. Nicknamed "the Calatrava," this $100 million addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum on Milwaukee’s lakefront looks like a giant bird unfurling its wings and has put Milwaukee The Quadracci Pavilion of the Milwaukee Art Museum on the world’s architectural map. Home to the Milwaukee Brewers, Miller Park opened in 2001 and was the site of the 2002 All-Star Game. Just eight blocks from Marquette is the Bradley Center, home of Marquette basketball, as well as the Milwaukee Bucks (NBA), Admirals (AHL) and Wave (MISL). 15
