Help support the department
Please consider a tax-deductible gift that is meaningful and significant to you. Our current priorities include:
Scholarships help attract quality residents. The VCU Dental Care Periodontal Resident Scholarship provides scholarship support for periodontal residents. The funding created from this endowed scholarship is divided evenly among all residents.
The VCU Dental Care Professorship in Periodontics is the first fund of its kind for the department. Offering an endowed professorship enables us to compete nationally and internationally for outstanding faculty leaders. Income from this fund will help attract and retain the finest faculty in periodontics and support the efforts of the VCU School of Dentistry Department of Periodontics.
General resident and program support
The Periodontics Current Fund provides unrestricted support for the areas of greatest need within the periodontics residency program. The fund provides critical resources to support resident educational courses and materials, research projects, travel to regional and national conferences, and in-service exam fees.
Your unrestricted gifts provide the flexibility to address immediate needs and unbudgeted opportunities. We encourage alumni to consider a gift of the equivalent fee for one dental implant procedure per year.
