Ways to Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved with the UCLA School of Dentistry. Whether you are an alumni, a donor, a community leader, or a dental professional, and wish to make an impact at one of the leading dental schools in the country, please contact us to see where you fit in.

  • Volunteer Faculty

    Volunteer faculty members play critical roles in the training of predoctoral students and resident dentists. These are individuals who are licensed dentists interested in making an impact on future dental professionals in the field. To inquire about becoming a member of our volunteer faculty, please contact the academic division where you would like to volunteer your time.

  • Dinner with Twelve Dental Students

    Beginning in the summer of 2013, the School of Dentistry began coordinating mini-events, coined "Dinner For 12 Dental Students". These events are modeled after the award winning “Dinner for 12 Strangers” program that the UCLA Main Campus has hosted since 1968, which brings together alumni, faculty and students from all generations to enjoy good food and great conversation.

  • 'Ask An Alum' Panel Series

    Come back to campus and share your dental school story with current students! Our first panel launched in February 2018 and was huge success. If you are interested in participating as a panelist email alumni@dentistry.ucla.edu!
