“As a fourth-year dental student, this scholarship has been a huge blessing in my life. I am so thankful for the generosity of the scholarship donors. Not only are they helping my family and me pay for my education, but their support also will improve the health of the thousands of underserved patients I plan to care for.”

Giving to make lives better

Support the School of Dentistry

Welcome to the School of Dentistry at UT Health San Antonio. For more than 50 years, the School of Dentistry has educated almost 6,000 oral health care professionals, conducted pioneering research, and successfully and compassionately treated tens of thousands of patients from San Antonio and South Texas.

Philanthropic support from alumni and friends of the School of Dentistry has helped the School earn national and international recognition for dental education, research, community service and patient care. Support from generous donors helps the dental school attract world-renowned faculty to educate the next generation of oral health care professionals, provide seed money for innovative research in order to attain substantial federal funding, and offer oral health care to the under- and uninsured in the community, especially children who would otherwise not receive preventative and emergent dental care.
