Dean's Circle

The University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry recognizes its supporters through various donor recognition levels based on type and amount of giving. These levels provide us with an avenue to thank donors for their generosity and to show how their gifts make a positive impact in the lives of students, individuals and entire communities.

Donors who make annual contributions of $1,000 or more are automatically enrolled as members of the Dean’s Circle.  Each year, these generous donations make a significant impact and allow us to achieve major goals and benefit the student experience on an incredible and grand scale.  Dean’s Circle members are celebrated each year with invitation-only opportunities including exclusive events and Continuing Education courses.

Thank you for supporting Detroit Mercy Dental!

Your gift allows us to carry out our mission to develop scientifically based, socially and ethically sensitive oral health professionals through excellence in teaching, scholarship and service.  From small class sizes, courses taught by exemplary faculty, emphasis on hands-on learning, and a commitment to nurturing leadership and service, a Detroit Mercy Dental education is a prestige accomplishment.  

Thanks to your support, we continue to graduate qualified, practice-ready dental professionals that you can be proud to call colleagues. We are grateful for your gift.  You make a difference in the lives of our students.
