Healthy teeth and gums make for more than just a great smile—they can have a big impact on the rest of the body. With links between oral health and conditions like stroke, diabetes, and heart disease, UTHealth School of Dentistry (SOD) is a leader in addressing oral health to improve overall health.
As the first dental school in Texas, the School of Dentistry helped set the bar for dental excellence more than 115 years ago. Today, we strive to improve health throughout our communities by caring for common and complex dental diseases, providing world-class education, and conducting innovative oral health research.
Donors like you—who share our vision for healthier communities—stand behind each student we train, patient we serve, and discovery we make. When you make a gift to the School of Dentistry, you help the many faces of UTHealth meet today’s challenges while driving the future of oral health care.
