Tufts Dental Fund

The Tufts Dental Fund supports the school’s mission of providing a patient centered education committed to excellence. Your support ensures that TUSDM has the resources necessary to fulfill its mission.  By providing critical financial support, alumni and friends like you make it possible for the dental school to offer state-of-the-art facilities and programs and provide much-needed financial aid. More than 89 percent of the school’s students seek financial assistance, and you play a crucial role in filling that need.

Annual gifts are put to use immediately to enhance the student experience here at TUSDM and address needs as they arise. Thank you for supporting our community.


You might say your own dental education was priceless. But we have to calculate the costs of what we provide, and they are considerable. The price tag for educating our students, supporting faculty research, and maintaining and improving our classrooms and clinical facilities is more than $50 million each year.

That’s why the support of the Tufts Dental Fund is necessary. The combined contributions of our loyal alumni and friends help us offer life-changing opportunities to deserving students who otherwise could not join our community. Our success depends on the involvement of alumni and friends like you, who consistently and generously offer your time, knowledge, and support. Every gift, no matter the size, gets us closer to our goal.

M Club

Alumni, who annually contribute to the Dental Fund or have served as a Reunion Co-Chair, have the opportunity to play a critical role at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine through involvement in the Dental M Club Executive Committee. Volunteering through this initiative gives the alumna/us an opportunity to connect with fellow alumni, faculty, parents and friends in an effort to meet the fundraising goals of Tufts Dental Fund each year.
