In addition to offering an excellent curriculum, the UNLV School of Dental Medicine
provides quality, low-cost dental services to Southern Nevadans. Private support for these programs ensures our students are not only studying about dentistry but are also learning how to make a significant impact in their community.
As part of the university's comprehensive campaign, the School of Dental Medicine has identified the following key fundraising priorities:
Private funds will help provide state-of-the-art research and teaching laboratories for faculty and students in the School of Dental Medicine
Faculty are at the center of the school's excellent academic curriculum. Gifts to support continuing educational opportunities for faculty will in turn provide students direct access to professionals knowledgeable about trends in practice, research, and solutions for better oral health.
Annual tuition for dental students is typically greater than most professional schools. As students must carefully concentrate on their studies, privately funded scholarships greatly ease financial obligations incurred during the four-year program.
Students have many opportunities to enhance their academic experiences beyond the classroom and laboratory practicum, and development funds offer a route to expanded education at conferences, through research, or as participants in international programs.
Equipment, software, and database acquisition and replacement
The School of Dental Medicine trains students in a unique, paperless environment: All patient records and research materials — including textbooks — are stored electronically. Private support will help the school maintain this technological edge with the latest databases, equipment, and other resources for faculty and student research.
"Invent the Future"
Major support for the school will create endless opportunities for tomorrow's dental health care providers. In honor of a significant gift, a donor may name the School of Dental Medicine or endowed faculty chairs, professorships, or scholarships.
