Advisory Boards

Members of Penn Dental Medicine’s Advisory Boards help define and implement the School’s strategic mission and goals. The boards include:

The Board of Overseers

The Board of Overseers of Penn Dental Medicine provides volunteer leadership and maintains as its standing charge to embrace the overall mission of the School to be the preeminent leader in dental education. The board acts as an advisory resource for the Dean on matters of policy, direction, practice, and effectiveness, while stewarding the historic missions of both the School and the University. It supports the continuous achievement of excellence in matters of curricular development, clinical work, research, admissions, infrastructure, alumni relations, and public relations.

Each board member, selected for their commitment, expertise, and diversity of backgrounds, provides new insights and ideas to the leadership of the School. Each serves as a global ambassador by creating strategic connections and by communicating the School’s strengths and needs to all constituencies including students, faculty, alumni, parents, the dental profession, and corporate concerns, as well as to the University’s trustees, president, and provost. It is also the responsibility of each board member to play a leadership role in all fundraising efforts.
