OHSU School of Dentistry

A new era begins on Portland's South Waterfront

The moment dental students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends have been long awaiting has finally arrived! On June 26, 2014, the ribbons were cut on the School of Dentistry’s new home in the Skourtes Tower, a 12-story facility located on the north side of the OHSU/OUS Collaborative Life Sciences Building. Patients were seen in the first week of July and the DMD Class of 2018 arrived in mid-August.

The Skourtes Tower facility is a new platform upon which to build the future of dentistry in our region, enabling the school to:

  • Teach students in a setting that reflects a modern dental practice, including 120-square-foot operatories
  • Serve more patients with expanded care
  • Stimulate research and clinical innovation
  • Create a sustainable funding base


We are closing in on the total $43 million fundraising goal for the new dental school building -- but we still have a lot of work to do. We invite you to join this historic effort by making your own philanthropic contribution. There are many naming opportunities  now available -- from clinics to state-of-the-art operatories. Investing in the OHSU School of Dentistry is an investment in tomorrow's dentists and the future of healthcare in Oregon and beyond. Please call (503) 552-0745 to schedule a tour of our new home and learn how you can support the next generation of dental health professionals in our region.
