Dental Alumni Association


The Dental Alumni Association (DAA) was founded in 1954 by 34 members of the first graduating class to support the mission and purpose of the school. Through the years, the association has provided financial support for UNC dental students through annual scholarships and by subsidizing various student activities. The DAA also provides beneficial opportunities for alumni to gather throughout the year, including spring reunions, fall football weekends, and activities coinciding with the Hinman Dental Meeting and the North Carolina Dental Society Annual Session.


Dental Foundation of North Carolina, Inc.


The Dental Foundation of North Carolina, Inc. was chartered in 1950 as a 501(c)(3) charitable not-for-profit organization. Today, The Dental Foundation is responsible for encouraging private support of the School of Dentistry, including scholarships, fellowships, professorships, departmental operations, and capital campaign projects such as the current construction of the Dental Sciences Building.
