The Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry is the dental school of Temple University. It is located in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. It is one of several dental schools in the state of Pennsylvania. The average incoming class is 125 students.


The Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry was established in 1863 as Philadelphia Dental College and is the second oldest continually functioning dental school in the country. The dental school became part of Temple University in 1907.[1][2] Formerly known as the Temple University School of Dentistry, the school's name was changed in December 2006 after a $10 million donation by the estate of Maurice H. Kornberg. It is situated in North Philadelphia and is well known for its significant clinical experience as well as extensive community involvement. Kornberg is currently undergoing an extensive renovation process that has already provided a brand new Orthodontics department and will soon add a new Pediatrics department and completely renovate the entire restorative department. This is all due to the aggressive expansion efforts of the dean, Dr. Amid Ismael.[3]
