Students walking up the stairs

Since its founding in 1868, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine has been committed to education, research and patient care. Today it is the second-largest dental school in the country and its reputation for excellence in dental education and patient care extends around the world.

Changes in dental technology, methods of teaching and the dental-health-care delivery system mandate a continuous critical review of curriculum, programs and research efforts to ensure that the school develops in tempo with these changes and continues to lead the profession. Changes also require financial support. Only with the support of alumni/ae and friends can the School of Dental Medicine meet the challenges of rapid change and an ambitious agenda for the future.

As a result of COVID-19, our emerging, top priority is supporting our hard-working dental students, who face sudden and immediate financial burdens, including housing, food security and unforeseen travel. If you are able to make a gift of any amount, your support will mean a great deal. Please visit

Why Give

The price tag for educating our students, supporting faculty research, maintaining and enhancing Tufts Dental’s classrooms and clinical facilities is considerable – more than $50 million each year.

In this context, it is hard sometimes to believe that individual giving can make a difference, but it can – and at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, it does. Think of it this way: one gift at a time, one student at a time. It all adds up.
