Saint Louis University


Welcome to the Saint Louis University Center for Advanced Dental Education (CADE), part of one of the most vibrant universities in the United States.

CADE has a proud tradition of excellence which strives to balance progressive excellence with the highest standards and the compassionate service of our Catholic, Jesuit heritage. Our graduates leave Saint Louis University prepared to be astute and aware clinicians using an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to caring for cranial facial and dental patient problems.

Patients in our clinics experience exceptional, innovative and multi-dimensional care with intervention of all dental specialties as appropriate, using the best available means in diagnosis, treatment planning, treatment technique and concept. CADE also extends its resources to the community to offer dental education and dental patient care to those in need.

Oral health care is a vital and challenging part of overall health care. As biomedical knowledge grows at an explosive rate, our faculty, staff and students are dedicated to maintaining CADE's integral role as a major contributor to the overall health care system.
