Office of Alumni Relations


The Office of Alumni Relations at the School of Dentistry develops activities and programs of relevance that will nurture lifelong relationships with and among our more than 6,600 living alumni. As a graduate, you are automatically a member of the Detroit Mercy Dental Alumni Network.

The Alumni Network is your connection to former classmates, the School, University, faculty and our ongoing traditions, and the future of the dental profession.

    Sign-up to mentor a student!

    The goal of our student/mentor program is to match alumni (mentors) with students to provide guidance, knowledge and resources as they prepare for their professional careers. Once you've submitted your information and offer to mentor a student, Office of Alumni Relations will work to find the most suitable mentee,  based on data you've provided.
