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.

The Power of Penn Dental Medicine campaign will raise the additional $20 million of a $55 million goal ($35 million raised in the quiet phase) to:

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

  • Address unmet oral health needs of the community by expanding community-based teaching experiences to improve access to dental care for vulnerable individuals and build support for global initiatives. Learn more »
  • Amplify the Power of Penn Dental Medicine by building annual unrestricted funds for vital operations within the School. Learn more »

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