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.

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

School of Dental Medicine Mentoring Program

Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine alumni have served as mentors to dental students throughout the years. It is the goal of the Alumni Chapter and the Office of Strategic Planning and External Affairs to introduce a formal mentoring program soon.

This program will connect our students with specially-selected alumni mentors allowing our students to learn first-hand about different career paths, leadership skills, styles and strategies. Mentors and students will be matched based on personal and professional interests.

Alumni Award of Excellence

In 2006 at the dedication of the "Alumni Wall" twelve members of the School of Dental Medicine Alumni Board, in appreciation of their outstanding dental education, endowed this award to recognize a year-four student who has demonstrated community service, leadership and a vision for the future of the School. The recipient will receive a monetary award and will have the opportunity to serve a one-year term on the School of Dental Medicine Alumni Board.

The selection announcement is made at the annual School of Dental Medicine Awards Ceremony in May.
