OHSU School of Dentistry

We're launching a new era on Portland's South Waterfront

The moment dental students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends have been long awaiting has finally arrived! In Summer of 2014, the School of Dentistry will begin moving to its new home in the Skourtes Tower, a 12-story facility located on the north side of the OUS/OHSU Collaborative Life Sciences Building.

The Skourtes Tower facility will create 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 have already raised more than three quarters of 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.
