We need your help again!

November 19, 2018

Hello former donors!


The UNCW USNDA Chapter (formerly UNCW Pre-Dental Club) has launched another fundraiser for the St. Mary’s Health Center Dental Clinic. Thank you for your support last year, and we hope that you would be kind enough to check out the link below and make a donation for this years project which run's through the end of November.


A few updates for this fundraiser—funding will again go towards dental supplies, in an effort to help the clinic offset money to purchase a digital X-ray in the future! Going digital would help the efficiency of the clinic and help our clinic be more environmentally friendly. Please click the link below, donate, and share with your friends!


With endless gratification,


Thank you for helping us reach our goal!

Thanks to you, the UNCW Pre-Dental Club has a big reason to smile! We achieved our goal of raising $2,000!


Every dollar will be used to help us purchase supplies that are in high demand at St. Mary's Health Center, a non-profit dental clinic in Wilmington, NC. Your gift will help enhance our clinical experience and together, we'll be making a difference for someone in the community. Thank you to everyone who shared, supported and donated!  We look forward to keeping you updated on how we put your gift to use. 


We could not have done it without your personal contribution! 


With great thanks,

UNCW Pre-Dental Club

Thanks for inspring us!

In addition to our clinical experience at St. Mary's Health Center, the UNCW Pre-Dental Club was able to travel to the UNC SNDA Dental Impressions Day this past weekend and I wanted to share a little about that experience with our donors. 

It was a worthwhile opportunity to have heard seminars on the importance of health promotion and prevention campaigns that acknowledge the impact of access, quality, and equity in health care. That general health and oral health are one. And most importantly, that through dentistry you can reverse health disparities by taking a seat at the table of interprofessional learning.

It's donors like you and these types of experiences that encourage us as aspiring dentists and with your help, we can continue to do great work in partnership with St. Mary's to help those in need.

We still need your help to reach 100% of our goal! 

Please continue to support our efforts by sharing our project page to help us spread the word. Every gift supports a learning opportunitiy for us and helps a member of the community live a better life.

Thanks to your support, we're 30% toward our goal!

Watch this short video message from project leader Arthur Taguchi. Your support in the early stages of our project has shown others that this is a cause worth supporting. Your gift will help us continue to provide emergency dental care for those in the Wilmington community that need it most. 

Thank you for helping to bring a smile to someone's face. We can't wait to share all that we are able to accomplish!
