Producing Dental Leaders

Producing Dental Leaders

Through the Power of Penn Dental Medicine campaign, we are enhancing our ability to produce the dental leaders of tomorrow through facilities improvements, digital innovation, scholarships, and funds to support diversity.

Schattner Clinic

The renovation of the Main Clinic (now the Robert I. Schattner Clinic) and the construction of the Schattner Pavilion (a two-story addition to the Robert Schattner Center) were possible in great part through support from the late Dr. Robert I. Schattner (C’48), one of the School’s most accomplished and devoted graduates, who contributed $15 million toward these projects before his death in January 2017. Opportunities remain to enhance both spaces and ensure they remain state-of-the-art facilities for students now and in the future. Support the projects »

Take a Seat

The William W. M. Cheung auditorium, formerly (B-60) in the Evans Building, is one of the most heavily used academic spaces in the School. The Take a Seat Campaign was created to secure resources to fund crucial upgrades to the lecture hall. Enhancements directly respond to the needs articulated by current students and faculty: better seating, digital connectivity, and improved aesthetics. Add your name to a seat for $1,000 »

Digital Innovation

We will establish Penn Dental Medicine as a leader in integrating new digital technologies in education, research, the clinics and the dental laboratory by securing state of the art equipment, implementing efficient new workflows, and creating a digital footprint for every patient. To learn more about digital innovation or opportunities for support, contact Maren Gaughan, Associate Dean for Leadership Giving, at gaughan@upenn.edu or 215-898-8952.

Dean’s Scholars

Penn Dental Medicine provides nearly $4 million in scholarship funding each year through the selection of Dean’s Scholars. These scholarships, offered at the time of admission, continue to recognize outstanding students based on academic as well as nonacademic achievements, from extracurricular activities and research experience to community service and leadership qualities.

Diversity Scholarships

Penn Dental Medicine is committed to increasing the diversity of the student body. To help meet this goal, the $1 Million Diversity Scholarship Challenge was established, building scholarship support for underrepresented minority and disadvantaged students. Support diversity

Fellowships, Doctor of Science in Dentistry (DScD)

To meet the needs of post-graduate students, we will expand fellowship offerings in each of the graduate dental education programs, as well as support for the Penn Dental Medicine DScD program.

Dental Hygiene Research & Innovation Fund

Through the creation of this Fund, Penn Dental Medicine is issuing a call to action to our dental faculty to explore the many ways dental hygienists contribute to patient wellbeing and can be partners in improving dental practice and outcomes. Learn more & support the program »
