Scientific Day

OU College of Dentistry holds an annual Scientific Day where dental students, dental hygiene students, and residents present findings from their research projects or describe new and innovative clinical techniques. Delta Dental of Oklahoma Foundation is proud to sponsor the event and our staff enjoys the opportunity to meet the students and learn from their research.

Student Research Projects

The Foundation also provides research stipends for student reseach projects each year. This year's sponsored student was Srujani Gadusu (DS3) for her research on "Evaluating the Retention of Sealants in Young Permanent Teeth through Axium."

 

OU Legacy Project


The College of Dentistry building, located on Stonewall Avenue in Oklahoma City, has been home to OU’s dentistry students, faculty, and staff since 1976.  During that time, only minor renovations and technology upgrades have been made to the facility.

In 2013, Delta Dental of Oklahoma Foundation made the largest single gift ever to the OU College of Dentistry - a $3.2 million lead gift to the Legacy Project capital campaign for the renovation of the college's building. The renovations allowed the College to integrate a comprehensive and patient-centered clinical delivery system and helped to ensure that the College of Dentistry continues its tradition of providing an outstanding, challenging education and state-of-the-art training environment.
