Office of Alumni Relations

Detroit Mercy Dental Alumni

The goal of the Office of Alumni Relations at the School of Dentistry is to develop and implement outreach activities that will nurture lifelong relationships with and among our more than 6,600 living alumni. We make every attempt to offer programs of relevance and service to alumni.  Underlying all our efforts is the belief that the School of Dentistry provides an exceptional education for students, serves as a resource to the community, and is committed to integrity, diversity, and service.

As a graduate of the School of Dentistry, you are automatically a member of the Detroit Mercy Dental Alumni Association. 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.


We regularly host social and networking events to keep you connected to your alma mater and part of an alumni network. Please join us at our 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
