The Power of Penn Dental Medicine

Penn Dental Medicine The Power of Penn Dental Medicine

Leading a Profession Poised for Unprecedented Change.

On the heels of the physical transformations made possible by the Evans Centennial Renaissance project, the Power of Penn Dental Medicine campaign will prepare our School to respond to the ever-changing opportunities and demands of the dental professional.

Through the incredible generosity of Penn Dental Medicine alumni, business partners and friends, The Power of Penn Dental Medicine campaign has raised more than $51 million toward a goal of $55 million by June 30, 2021. Gifts have renovated nearly all of the Thomas Evans Building, created a new Digital Design & Milling Center, enhanced care to children at the Saito Pediatric Care Center, and funded the new Care Center for Persons with Disabilities. Funds are still needed for student scholarships, to support community-based initiatives and care for vulnerable groups.

Through this campaign, Penn Dental Medicine will continue to distinguish our institution globally with advances that change the lives of practitioners and patients alike.

The Power of Penn Dental Medicine campaign is:

  • Investing in the research enterprise in support of our scientists to propel breakthroughs in oral health and interdisciplinary research. Learn more »
  • Producing the leaders of tomorrow through facilities improvements, digital innovation, and new scholarships and fellowships to support our students.
