Why You Should Join the Alumni Association

Pay Membership Dues

Membership levels
Active Membership

Active members are alumni who support our Association by paying membership dues each year. We rely on our members' dues payments to support the Alumni Association's mission and goals. Annual dues are $210 per year. Dues notices are sent to all alumni each December. Members attending alumni events (i.e. Annual Meeting, CDA receptions or regional events) are expected to be current in dues payments. All graduates and associate members receive every mailing from the Alumni Association, regardless of dues-paying status.

Associate Membership

Dentists who are not graduates of our dental school are invited to join the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry Alumni Association as associate members. For the same annual membership dues of $210 per year, non-graduate dentists receive all mailings and benefits, and are listed in our directory as associate members. To join the Alumni Association as an associate member, please contact our Alumni Office at 415.351.7108.

Young Alumni

Classes of 2015, 2016 and 2017 are $105 per year.


Alumni and associates who are dental hygienists are $103 per year.

Dugoni School Family

Faculty and staff can join the Alumni Association for $103 per year.


The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry Alumni Association organizes several annual and biannual events designed to help you stay connected with your classmates and the dental school family.

Our events include:

  • Alumni receptions during the California Dental Association (CDA) Spring Scientific Session in Anaheim and the CDA Fall Scientific Session in San Francisco. 
  • Our Annual Alumni Meeting where members can earn continuing education units by attending various lectures. We invite commercial vendors to showcase their products and hold a reception for all participants at the end of the first meeting day. This two-day meeting is usually held in late winter on a Friday (full day) and Saturday (half day). 
  • Regional breakfasts, lunches, receptions and/or dinners held during various western states' annual dental association meetings or during national meetings such as the ADA or ADEA.
  • The annual Alumni/Graduate Banquet held each June to welcome the graduating classes into the association.
