Help our faculty thrive

In the School of Dentistry, our educators, researchers and clinicians continually take our teaching to new heights, forming practice-ready dentists in the Jesuit tradition.  

Strong faculty starts with hiring advanced and adaptable professionals. To bring them to Creighton, and retain them, we must continue to provide access to new technology, research methods and opportunities for our faculty to grow. 

Your support for the School of Dentistry Faculty Recruitment, Retention and Development Fund helps us hire passionate leaders who inspire our students to confront challenging times with that unbeatable mix of competence and compassion. 

Thank you for ensuring that our students are taught by some of the most talented dental educators in the nation.

More than 5,000 alumni. And counting. 

Since its founding in 1905, the School of Dentistry has prepared more than 5,000 dentists for lives of professional excellence, community leadership and compassionate care.  

Thousands of our tremendous alumni are now working around the world, with more Creighton dentists serving rural, underserved communities than graduates from any other private dental school in the country.  

In 2018, the school started a bold new chapter with the construction of a 200,000-square-foot clinic and facility, which has already driven significant growth in our educational opportunities and the amount of care we can provide our patients in the region.
