Why we need your support
Dental education is constantly changing. To adapt to the rapidly changing academic environment, we need the flexibility provided by gifts to our areas of greatest need. Your support ensures our future stability and helps us maintain our competitive edge.
How you can help
Contributing to one of our priority funds is one way to support the School of Dentistry.
As the phased renovation plans are approved and implemented, the much-needed renovations to Urgent Care and Patient Registration will give a new, fresh and modern look to the School of Dentistry Clinics and Urgent Care, improving efficiency and functionality.
Gifts support the School’s most pressing needs, such as student travel to conferences, research funds, technology and outreach services.
General Scholarship Fund
Dental school debt averages $170,000 for WVU students. Giving to the scholarship fund helps reduce student debt for dentistry and dental hygiene students.
Gifts to this fund are critical to recruit and support the much-needed position of chair of pediatric dentistry, in order to begin the approved Pediatric Dentistry Residency program. The fund also supports the greatest needs of faculty for retention and credential enhancement. These funds need your support, but with the ever-increasing need for private philanthropic giving, a gift to any department or program in the School of Dentistry will be greatly appreciated.
Your contribution — of any amount — matters.
Department of Orthodontics
This fund is for the educational benefit of the faculty, students and classified staff of the Department of Orthodontics in the School of Dentistry.
