Fund the future of dental education at Ohio's only state dental school
Postle Hall was built nearly 70 years ago and we are finally in the last year of construction on the Postle Hall Phase I Replacement. The commitment and support from our alumni are helping to make our new building a reality. As Ohio's only state-supported dental school, this is the College of Dentistry's moment to shine and take its place as an important and leading oral health care provider.
Our Building on Strong Foundations campaign is about realizing the college’s enormous potential to expand our position as a national leader. The $25 million campaign presents the opportunity to accelerate our excellence, in partnership with alumni and friends, by helping to provide dental simulation clinics for our students. These simulation clinics provide life-like, hands-on experiences that familiarize them with the clinical situations they will face when caring for real patients.
By supporting the completion of this building project, you can ensure that our students have access to state-of-the-art training and facilities, leading to the best possible patient care. Your generosity will make a difference and will ensure the completion and opening of the clinics.
Our college and its alumni make a great and everlasting impact with our more than 11,000 living alumni making up nearly two-thirds of Ohio’s dentists and at least one College of Dentistry graduate practicing in every state.
The college makes a strong impact on the community as well. This can be seen as we treat more than 400 patients daily in our campus-based clinics. Our clinics have treated Medicaid patients from 84 of Ohio’s 88 counties and our mobile dental clinic travels to Columbus elementary schools, delivering dental care to children who have difficulty accessing care and have substantial, unmet oral health care needs. With faculty supervision, our fourth-year students spend 50 days working in community clinics, hospitals and private practices that provide care to underserved populations through the OHIO Project.
Give today to the Phase I Replacement of Postle Hall through the College of Dentistry Building Replacement/Renovation Fund. Your gift will help complete state-of-the-art facilities that support the future of dental education at Ohio's only state dental school!
