Strategies

Impact

Pre-clinical Laboratory Renovation

Renovate the laboratory space for first and second year students

  • Demolish and reconstruct the current space
  • Purchase 110 KaVo simulation Units for students

With this update our students can learn in a state-of-the-art facility that will prepare them better to work on live patients

Periodontics Suite Renovation

Renovate the Periodontics space for our residents

  • Demolish and reconstruct the current space
  • Purchase new equipment

There are many structural and equipment updates needed in the building to teach our students in a manner that prepares them best for private practice

Oral Surgery Suite Renovation

Renovate the Oral Surgery space for our residents

  • Demolish and reconstruct the current space
  • Purchase new equipment

There are many structural and equipment updates needed in the building to teach our students in a manner that prepares them best for private practice

Second Floor Entry Renovation

Renovate the second floor entry to the school for faculty, staff, students, and patients ease and safety

  • Doorway renovations
  • New flooring and paint
  • Create a check-in desk for customer service and safety of those in the building

Half of the traffic into the building comes through the back entrance which can be difficult to navigate and confusing.  This would improve that situation and limit the number of people entering the building who don’t belong as well.

Faculty Support

Endowed faculty positions and faculty development funds secure the schools future

  • Secure Endowed Chair for two of our specialized departments
  • Increase our faculty development support

These gifts help us respond to the disparity between salaries in private practice and academia allowing us to recruit and retain top tier faculty

Diversity Initiatives

Enhance diversity in the dental profession through attracting students from diverse and underserved populations.

  • Secure funding for diversity scholarships
  • Fund University Academy Clinic

We will enable the school to deliver educational programs and funds to underserved areas and populations so we more closely mirror the community in which we live

Research Leadership

Assist the Oral and Craniofacial Sciences Department at the School of Dentistry

  • Support the faculty of Oral and Craniofacial Sciences
  • Support the Graduate Assistants of Oral and Craniofacial Sciences

We will be able to put more of our efforts toward laboratory research in biomaterials, bioengineering, and biomechanics in the hopes they will lead to new medical treatmens
