Regional Impact

The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is a significant contributor to the San Francisco economy and the overall character of the Pacific Heights neighborhood. The students, faculty and staff at the dental school live, eat, shop and work in the neighborhood, supporting the various local merchants who call Pacific Heights home.

According to an economic impact statement by Pacific's Business Forecasting Center released in 2010, the school is responsible for more than $129 million annually in economic activity in the San Francisco Bay Area. The dental school employs 500-plus people, and the school's expenditures sustain more than 1,000 non-dental school jobs.

In addition, our clinics provide approximately $500,000 of uncompensated dental care on an annual basis and another $10 million of care at substantially reduced prices to assist the culturally and socio-economically diverse population of the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Dugoni School has been serving the San Francisco Bay Area since 1896 and is committed to continuing its contributions to the Pacific Heights community and the greater Bay Area.

"I have long known and respected this dental school for its humanistic model of education and its strong commitment to patient care, research and clinical education."
