Why should you give back?
Since its founding in 1896, the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine has become an international premier dental educational and clinical facility.

Learn about the many ways that you can give.
Contributions from alumni and friends have been generous and have become vital to address many needs including improvements in our clinical facilities, classrooms, public areas, and students' lives. The cost of a dental education is staggering and a limiting factor to entry into the profession. Debts in excess of $250,000 upon graduation are common. Scholarships and awards are essential to our students, the school and our region.
Your support to the School of Dental Medicine has made many accomplishments possible, such as:
- Providing student support with need and merit based financial assistance
- Providing continuing education programs for dental professionals
- Attracting and retain the finest faculty and researchers
- Providing quality and affordable oral health care for the community
To accomplish these goals your participation is crucial. By directing your gift to an area or department that is most meaningful to you, you contribute to the advancement of our work and enable the school to attract the best and brightest students to the region and keep our mission of caring and compassion in our community alive. We have many ways for you to support the school. For more information about giving to the School of Dental Medicine please contact Matt Iannazzo at 412-862-7429, or make your gift online.
