Support Dentistry

Giving through WVUF

Private giving to the School of Dentistry, through the WVU Foundation, demonstrates unwavering Mountaineer spirit, passion, loyalty, and a commitment to improving the lives of others. The School of Dentistry counts on the generosity of supporters to assist in our efforts to improve oral health through innovation in education, patient care, research and service.

The support of alumni and friends empowers the school to create incredible opportunities including

• Renovations for the state-of-the-art educational facilities that enable our faculty to train students on the latest technologies.

• Scholarships that open doors for students whose talent and passion for dentistry may exceed their ability to pay tuition.

• Advancing pediatric dental care by expanding educational programs to teach the techniques and skills that enhance the patient experience.
