Helping Our Future

The UTSD Alumni Association has created a Tooth Collection Program to assist UTSD Dental Students in obtaining appropriate teeth to meet their program requirements. We are asking Alumni to save extracted teeth in jars the association will provide, free of charge. Dental students need help in collecting teeth for lab practicals, mock boards, Boards, and various other restorative and endodontic activities.

The Alumni Association will also coordinate drop off and pick up of the jar(s) from your office.Contact Dr.Joe Piazza at jmpiazzajr@gmail.com or Kathy Zwieg at kathy.zwieg@gmail.com for more information.Please help our future alumni with this important requirement!
