Come Visit Us

We encourage any interested student to come and meet with us to learn more about UKCD and the admissions process for the DMD program.  We find it very helpful to have conversations early in the decision making process so we can get to know one another, and also assist you in making sure you have your “ducks in a row” for application.  Once the application cycle begins, we only meet with current applicants if and when they are scheduled for an interview.  Current applicants may email or call for status updates only.

Certain times of the year are busier than others.  Please contact us at least a week in advance to schedule a meeting by calling the Office of Admissions at 859-323-6071 or send email to:
