Welcome School of Dental Medicine Alums!
To All of My Fellow Alumni Colleagues:
No matter how far you go in your career and in life, you will always be a part of the small elite group of School of Dental Medicine (SDM) alumni now numbered at nearly 1,200. We encourage you to keep close ties with your SDM classmates, professors, advisors and fellow alumni.
This site is filled with useful information including an events calendar, a photo gallery from SDM events, current alumni benefits and so much more. You may also reconnect with your alma mater in many meaningful ways.
Perhaps you could:
- Serve as a mentor to one or more SDM dental students
- Sign up for one of our upcoming events or continuing education classes
- Volunteer to become a more involved member of the SDM Alumni Chapter
- Make a gift to support your Alumni Chapter, scholarships, dental outreach or initiatives outlined in the Strategic Plan
If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact Kristin Matthews at (631) 632-6130 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I hope you join me in participating and strengthening the bonds between alumni, present students and the School of Medicine. Pride and tradition at Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine starts with us.

School of Dental Medicine Mentoring Program
Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine alumni have served as mentors to dental students throughout the years. It is the goal of the Alumni Chapter and the Office of Strategic Planning and External Affairs to introduce a formal mentoring program soon.
This program will connect our students with specially-selected alumni mentors allowing our students to learn first-hand about different career paths, leadership skills, styles and strategies. Mentors and students will be matched based on personal and professional interests.
Alumni Award of Excellence
In 2006 at the dedication of the "Alumni Wall" twelve members of the School of Dental Medicine Alumni Board, in appreciation of their outstanding dental education, endowed this award to recognize a year-four student who has demonstrated community service, leadership and a vision for the future of the School. The recipient will receive a monetary award and will have the opportunity to serve a one-year term on the School of Dental Medicine Alumni Board.
The selection announcement is made at the annual School of Dental Medicine Awards Ceremony in May.
There are a variety of options for you to support Stony Brook's Alumni Funds:
Dental Graduate Alumni Activity Fund: To help support SDM alumni chapter activities and initiatives such as the mentor program
Dean's Fund for the Future: To help support teaching, special projects, equipment, research endeavors, patient care and service initiatives
SDM Alumni Award of Excellence: To further support an annual award given each year to a graduating dental student who has demonstrated leadership and a vision for the future of the School of Dental Medicine
International Dental Outreach Fund: To provide funding to support the purchase of supplies, equipment and travel costs for students and faculty to travel abroad to provide dental care to those most in need
