Message from the Dean

The tremendous international reputation of the UCSF School of Dentistry owes a great deal to the dedication and generosity of our alumni.

We are well represented by you throughout the profession and throughout the world, embodying the excellence of our School in your practice, and providing an example to tomorrow's dentists and dental scientists. You show them - as you show all of us - how to serve, and how to give back. Read more.

Message from the UCSF Dental Alumni Association President 


Hello alumni and friends,

The UCSF Dental Alumni Association (DAA) is a vibrant organization of dentists and dental hygienists. Established in 1882 to meet the desire of alumni for a continuing relationship with their school, the DAA supports fellowship among our alumni and the School through student outreach and a host of other alumni activities. We maintain our ties by facilitating a means for us to remain in touch with the School and each other through our annual signature events.

This year we proudly celebrated our 121th annual UCSF DAA Scientific Session at Alumni Weekend 2017 – it is an outstanding two-day Scientific Session filled with CE Courses and networking events for all dentistry insiders. As part of the Scientific Session, Class reunions are coordinated by the Office of Alumni Relations.

We also host four board meetings throughout the year, provide scholarships to students, sponsor many events catered at promoting camaraderie amongst alumni and the dental school, and welcome students and new members such as our annual DAA Bear Bash and Thirsty Bear Alumni Reception.

As your DAA President, I am humbled and honored to serve you. My goal is to increase membership and continue to provide a strong network for new graduates and alumni and use the DAA as a resource for communication between dentists, dental hygienists, and all other dental professionals.

We are always looking for alumni interested in getting involved with our UCSF family. To attend our meetings, or to share your expertise, please contact

 We look forward to your participation and support! 

Respectfully Yours
