Support the betterment of UB’s dental school through this fund.

Established by Dr. Barry A. Ruchlin and Dr. Earl I. Ullman, the SDM Endowed Chair fund is used to recruit and/or retain outstanding faculty for the betterment of UB’s School of Dental Medicine.

Specifically, the fund provides financial support, at the discretion of the Dean, to be used by the Chairholder for the betterment of the school.

The School of Dental Medicine is a pioneer in the field—a research titan, and a shining example of the best of dental education, community engagement and global leadership. Maintaining our lead is expensive. Increasing our lead requires a $43 million investment, more visionary donors and additional philanthropic support. But the payoff is immense: With your help, our world-class research, education, clinical facilities and experiences will better prepare our students, redefine and strengthen dental medicine, and improve the health of countless millions of people.
