The Association of Dental Alumni


With nearly 6,000 members living and practicing around the world, the College of Dental Medicine Alumni Association is truly a community of leaders in oral healthcare.

All graduates automatically become members of the Association of Dental Alumni. The Alumni Association offers a wide range of networking opportunities, events, and many other ways to stay involved with the exciting things that are happening here. Please make sure to update your contact information in the new Columbia Alumni Community portal and follow us on Facebook. We also regularly post career opportunities on our Alumni Job Board

Alumni support is critical to our mission and we hope you will consider giving back to the College of Dental Medicine. With your help, we will continue to educate and inspire the next generation of dental leaders, provide outstanding care for underserved populations, and conduct groundbreaking research that advances oral health worldwide.

We hope you will stay connected!
