Please join us for Our Anniversary Celebration: 
50 Years of Achievement

Scientific Symposium & Dinner
Saturday, May 6, 2023
Dugoni School & Intercontinental Hotel

2023 will mark the 50th anniversary of our first graduating class (Class of 1973) and we have so much to celebrate with you! 

As we look back over the last half century, it is amazing to see how much has been accomplished.

 

Our more than 300 alumni have made their mark on the profession and on people’s lives. I would like to personally thank all members of our Dugoni School orthodontic family — your ongoing support has made our many success stories possible!

With this anniversary celebration, we hope to bring everyone together to create a greater sense of community and to generate support for the future of our program. We hope you’ll join us for this event — and for the next 50 years!

Dr. Dugoni
Support Our Students with Scholarships

Your gift can make all the difference for students at the Dugoni School.

Our late Dean Dr. Art Dugoni had a dream of providing scholarships for every student and resident, and so in 2017, he established the Orthodontic Resident Fund, recently renamed in his memory as the Arthur A. Dugoni Orthodontic Endowed Scholarship. Following Art’s lead, Dr. Robert Boyd established his own endowed scholarship upon his retirement in 2019.

 

Thanks to the leadership of these amazing faculty, former chairs and leaders in dentistry, these two funds have raised more than $1.4 million between them to help support ortho residents who would not otherwise be able to be part of our vibrant, diverse Dugoni School community. Please join us in supporting future generations of Dugoni School orthodontists, reducing the burden of their student debt and solidifying our position as the best ortho program in the world. Your gifts are the cornerstone of a strong Dugoni School education. 

Together, we can embark on a great journey toward achieving our — and Art’s — dream of providing our exceptional orthodontic residency program tuition-free. 

Our immediate goal is to build up a large enough endowment so we can reduce tuition to less than half the current cost. The members of the Class of 2023 have become the first recipients of the Endowed Scholarship.
