Funding Priority

Staying Ahead of the Curve

As one of the top dental schools for NIH funding, we advance research that pushes the boundaries of oral health. To prepare for the future, we must invest in state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge research. We must also secure unrestricted funds to augment state funding.

UNC Adams School of Dentistry

    Each technological advancement in the field of dentistry affects how we approach our educational instruction and how our alumni approach their individual practices. To prepare students for future advances in oral health science and technology, we must prepare them to quickly adapt to change — whether in advanced imaging techniques, diagnostic tools or surgical procedures.

    The UNC Adams School of Dentistry strives to lead future advancements in the field of oral health. As changes in technology accelerate, we seek to provide our students with the innovative tools they need to practice at the top of their professions. And we have the chance to progress in ways we’ve never progressed before. With your support, our school will continue to propel our local, national and global leadership in the field of dental education, investing in cutting-edge research, the latest technology and next-generation equipment.
