Make A Gift to the School of Dental Medicine!



Three ways to make a gift to the School of Dental Medicine:



For more details about a few of the most pressing areas of need at the School of Dental Medicine, please click on one of the following:

SIU SDM Campus ImageSince 1972, the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine has continued to carry out its mission - to improve the oral health of southern Illinois and the region through education, patient care, scholarship and service.

Our students remain our top priority at the SIU School of Dental Medicine. We eagerly serve our students, helping them reach their fullest potential. As a result, they traditionally score very well on the National Board Dental Exams.

Managing over 34,000 patient visits last year, we are pleased that patients report a very high satisfaction rate with the dental care provided in our clinics in Alton and East St. Louis. We continue to incorporate new technologies into our clinical education program to better serve our patients and our students.

The faculty continue to mentor students in dental research and a number of students have presented their results at national scientific meetings. Collaboration among faculty on research projects within the University and with a number of other universities is flourishing.

The Community & Preventive Dentistry community outreach program continues to improve access to quality oral health for thousands of men, women, and children annually through educational programs, oral cancer screenings and/or oral health treatments. Each year, our "Give Kids A Smile Day" treats a significant number of area children, providing thousands of dollars worth of free dental treatment, including examinations, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, fillings and extractions.

We are proud of the achievements of our students and faculty. Their hard work and continued dedication has earned us an excellent reputation. This level of accomplishment is not easily achieved or maintained without the support of alumni and friends.

As state support to dental education decreases, private contributions to the School of Dental Medicine afford us the opportunity to achieve tremendous success in our efforts to continuously improve the quality of dental education we provide our students. Only through your generosity can we continue to help our dental students develop into excellent dental practitioners.

For these reasons and reasons personal to you, we ask you to consider giving back to the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. Please help us to continue to achieve excellence in dental education and patient care with a gift to the School of Dental Medicine.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
