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.
