School of Dental Medicine
Welcome School of Dental Medicine Alums!
To All of My Fellow Alumni Colleagues:
No matter how far you go in your career and in life, you will always be a part of the small elite group of School of Dental Medicine (SDM) alumni now numbered at nearly 1,200. We encourage you to keep close ties with your SDM classmates, professors, advisors, and fellow alumni.
This site is filled with useful information including an events calendar, a photo gallery from SDM events, current alumni benefits and so much more. You may also reconnect with your alma mater in many meaningful ways.
Perhaps you could:
- Serve as a mentor to one or more SDM dental students
- Sign up for one of our upcoming events or continuing education classes
- Volunteer to become a more involved member of the SDM Alumni Chapter
- Make a gift to support your Alumni Chapter, scholarships, dental outreach, or initiatives outlined in the Strategic Plan
I hope you join me in participating and strengthening the bonds between alumni, present students and the School of Medicine. Pride and tradition at Stony Brook School of Medicine starts with us.
