Detroit Mercy Dental Alumni

The Office of Alumni Relations at the School of Dentistry develops activities and programs of relevance that will nurture lifelong relationships with and among our more than 6,600 living alumni.  

As a graduate of the School of Dentistry, you are automatically a member of the Detroit Mercy Dental Alumni Network. Alumni are invited to special events and receptions, can use our online career services, and receive our bi-annual alumni magazine, Leading Edge.

The University of Detroit Mercy Alumni Association is not only your connection to former classmates, but discounted continuing dental education courses, the School, the University, faculty and our ongoing traditions, and the future of the dental profession.


Please join us at our social and networking events as we love to learn what you have been doing.  It is also an opportunity for you to see new and familiar faces, and cultivate personal and professional relationships. 

Alumni receptions are held during state and national meetings, such as: 

  • Academy of General Dentistry Annual Session
  • American Association of Endodontists Meeting 
  • American Association of Orthodontists Annual Session 
  • California Dental Association Presents Anaheim
  • Chicago Midwinter Meeting
  • Michigan Dental Association Annual Session
  • Ontario Dental Association 
  • Yankee Dental Congress 

Local activities for alumni engagement, include: 

  • Alumni Achievement Spirit Awards 
  • Detroit Mercy Night at Comerica Park
  • Homecoming
  • Detroit Mercy Dental Alumni Day

    Sign-up to mentor a student!

    The goal of our student/mentor program is to match alumni (mentors) with students to provide guidance, knowledge and resources as they prepare for their professional careers. Once you've submitted your information and offer to mentor a student, Office of Alumni Relations will work to find the most suitable mentee,  based on data you've provided.
