Established in 2010, the UBC Dentistry Graduate Orthodontic Program alumni community has grown into a group of specialists brimming with passion and commitment to give back – supporting the continued success of the Program.

As trailblazers, you know first hand that student awards and recognition of achievements is something that greatly enhances the student’s experience while acknowledging the drive and commitment to succeed.

The establishment of the newly named UBC Dentistry Graduate Orthodontics Alumni Award is a great opportunity for our orthodontic alumni and community to come together and support graduate orthodontic students and strengthen the future of our profession.

Our goal is to endow the UBC Dentistry Graduate Orthodontics Alumni Award to ensure an ongoing commitment of support for current and future students. To do this, we must generate a minimum commitment of $50,000 capital investment.

Please consider making a charitable gift of $5,000 to match the commitment already made by several UBC grad ortho alumni. When you contribute to the UBC Dentistry Graduate Orthodontics Alumni Award, you become an integral part of our philanthropic community while recognizing the achievement of a future colleague.
