Since its beginning, the School of Dentistry Alumni has been an organization of graduates that share the goal of keeping alumni connected and involved with the various activities sponsored by the School of Dentistry and the Alumni Association.

In April 1961, a class meeting was held to vote on the Constitution and By-Laws for the organization, and the result was that the first class of the WVU School of Dentistry established the Alumni Association. In 1970, dental hygiene graduates also became affiliated with the Alumni Association. The School of Dentistry Alumni Association continues to sponsor many philanthropic activities.
