The University of Washington School of Dentistry is dedicated to excellence in education, research and community care. As the leading provider of dental care in the Pacific Northwest, we educate three quarters of all dentists practicing in Washington.
Our primary mission is to educate a progressive oral health workforce, develop community collaborations, and bring advances in science to address the pressing needs of our state, the nation and the world. We do this by preparing our students to be competent oral health care professionals.
But accomplishing this mission requires your participation. By directing your gift to an area or department that is most meaningful to you, you contribute to the advancement and reputation of the School in any number of areas:
The School’s Current Fundraising Priorities include:
- Dentistry Dean’s Fund for Excellence and Innovation
Gifts to this fund support new initiatives and areas of greatest need at the School of Dentistry.
- James C. Steiner Fund for Student Services and Support
Gifts to this fund support dental student services and activities. Funds may also be used for student tuition, books, travel and other educational expenses that may occur while pursuing their degree.
- Dental Faculty Support Fund
Gifts to this fund support faculty in all departments within the School of Dentistry. Funds may be used for recruitment, retention, recognition or training and career development.
Thanks to the generosity of many alumni and others, the School has already made great strides. Join us as we build on a foundation of excellence to create an even brighter future in oral health for our faculty, students and the communities we serve.
