Whether you called it the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery or the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, 2021 marks a milestone reunion year for you and your classmates. While much has changed over the years, one thing remains the same: the faculty at the School of Dentistry continue to be passionate about training the next generation of oral health professionals. 

As you celebrate this year, consider making a donation to the Dean’s Innovation Fund in honor of your reunion. Any gift of any size matters and is greatly appreciated. Your gift will ensure that students will share your milestone achievements, that faculty and researchers have the resources they need to make new breakthroughs in oral health education, and that patients are able to receive the care they need at a cost they can afford.
