60th Anniversary
Student Wellness Fund

Faculty of Dentistry

Help our students reach their full potential as future oral health care professionals

At UBC Faculty of Dentistry, students are at the heart of what we do. Being a university student can be challenging and now, more than ever, supporting our students to thrive is top priority.

That’s why to celebrate our 60th anniversary we are establishing the Dentistry Student Wellness Fund to support students’ mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.

UBC Faculty of Dentistry has a long history of prioritizing our students’ wellbeing, including offering our own Faculty-based counselling services. This fund will provide a mechanism for extra support through our counselling program and will be open to all dental hygiene, doctor of dental medicine and graduate students, to help them tackle real-time issues such as food insecurity, improving physical health and mindfulness.

While we have several student awards recognizing academic achievement and bursaries to assist those with financial needs, this will be the first fund geared entirely towards student wellbeing.

The UBC Dentistry Student Wellness Fund is an important step towards helping our students reach their full potential as future oral health care professionals, researchers, educators and community advocates. Thank you for your commitment to making a difference.


FORWARD, the campaign for UBC, is advancing healthy lives, creating solutions for the planet, and shaping thriving societies. Donors and alumni are the catalyst making it happen.
