We invite all alumni to join us for a 2 day program of continuing education (9 CE credits) including the department's Graduation Day luncheon. We want to learn what our alumni have been doing and how they continue to contribute to the advancement of our specialty. Register here for the reunion >>>

Fundraising Efforts

In efforts to recognize alumni and colleagues who have made major contributions to the department we have unveiled plaques in our clinic with the names of our benefactors. Our fundraising efforts will continue with the goal of building a new state of the art orthodontic wing. Every contribution, small or large, will bring us closer to the dream of building a facility that will mirror the leadership, innovation, and great accomplishments of our department. We are counting on the generosity of our alumni, patients (we recently received a patient donation of $10,000), and our corporate partners. If you are interested in becoming part of the effort to achieve this goal please email us at:
