Is there anything more generous than giving for the benefit of those who follow in your footsteps? Alumni and friends of the college have done just that—with gifts currently totaling more than $500,000 to fund a transformative nine-month renovation of Clinic 1A into state-of-the-art periodontology and prosthodontics graduate clinics. The renovation is scheduled for completion in July 2012, just in time for the 2012 periodontology and prosthodontics residents to begin their graduate programs.

Started almost ten years ago, these projects gained traction with leadership from the Department of Periodontology and gifts from alumni and friends. Renovation plans include a redesigned clinic located on the first floor of the dental tower close to the specialty clinics of the newly established School of Advanced Dental Sciences. The new facilities will include surgical suites named for lead donors, including Gerald Kluft, D.D.S., and Geraldine Ferris, D.M.D. Their gifts, along with ongoing support from many other contributors and a $200,000 gift from Biomet 3I, made this project possible. The combined graduate clinics of periodontology and prosthodontics will enable interdisciplinary learning and will also include modern ceramic and removable labs. All contributors will be recognized in the renovated clinics and labs.
