Dean's Circle

Donor Recognition Evening 2018

What is the Dean's Circle Program?

The Dean's Circle Program was instituted to recognize the commitment of our alumni, faculty and friends whose generosity exemplifies Dean Charles Bertolami's extraordinary dedication and commitment to the Dental College.

The Dean' Circle is NYU College of Dentistry's most prestigious donor recognition group and currently holds a membership of over 350 alumni, faculty and friends. It comprises a wide spectrum of dental professionals and leading global health corporations that constitute the Who's Who of NYU College of Dentistry alumni.

Why join the Dean's Circle?

Giving back is a NYU Dentistry alumni tradition, ensuring a quality education for today's students. As the largest dental school in the United States, it boasts a level of national and international diversity unmatched by any other dental school. The Dental College provides special occasions for Dean Circle members to meet throughout the year to network and celebrate the Dental College accomplishments. Members are invited to a variety of unique programs and continuing education seminars, which include marquee events focused on dental education, global health research and awareness, social gatherings, and receptions.

Dean Circle members will be listed in our award winning Nexus magazine on the "Donor Honor Roll" . In addition, members will receive an invitation to our prestigious Dean's Circle Reception, hosted by Dean Charles Bertolami.

Through the Dean's Circle, members provide the critical funding in support of student financial aid, state-of-the-art clinical, research and student life facilities, as well as the recruitment of new, nationally and internationally recognized faculty.
