Gifts that make you smile

Child oral health

Over the past forty years the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine has strived to build a premier dental school, one focused on excellence in dental education, research, patient care and service for communities throughout Colorado and around the nation.

In that time we have made good on our mission to educate the profession's future and serve our patient community with the highest standard of care.  And yet there is so much more to be done.

Changes in population demographics, identified workforce shortages in rural Colorado, and increases in cost, leave some within our communities lacking access to the dental care that they need and deserve. But we can change that.

In partnership with our alumni, community and private dentists, faculty and students, we can create healthy smiles across Colorado, our nation, and even around the world.  And donor investments are critical to supporting these working relationships and expanding care.

Annually the School of Dental Medicine serves 82,000 patients within our school and community partner clinics.  Over $600,000 in dental care is donated to rural children through our mobile clinic. New programs like our adolescent clinic provide unique support and targeted care to these special patient populations.   Scholarship programs continue to grow with the goal of providing more student access to affordable, high quality dental education and training. These programs and services are made possible through generous donor support to our school.

Thank you for helping us to create brighter, healthier futures, one smile at a time.
