Join a tradition of giving

The leadership giving society for Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, the Dean’s Circle was created to encourage annual giving. The Dean’s Circle recognizes loyal alumni, friends, faculty, and staff whose generosity drives the School of Dentistry to build on its status as one of the top dental schools in the country.

Become a Member

Membership in the Dean’s Circle is extended by invitation to those who demonstrate generous philanthropic support to the School of Dentistry. To qualify for membership, you must contribute a minimum of $1,500 to any School of Dentistry fund within a calendar year.

As a member of the Dean’s Circle, your investment will help meet the educational needs of our students, help the School take advantage of extraordinary opportunities; and meet new challenges in teaching, research, and service.

The School of Dentistry is strong because alumni, friends, faculty and staff are all working together. Your support is essential as dental professionals of tomorrow are educated at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry today.
