Message from Dean Carol Lefebvre, DDS

If you were among the hundreds of alumni who visited us in April for Alumni Weekend (and we sure hope you were), you saw firsthand how dramatically the DCG landscape is changing. Our building is now a stone’s throw from two new Augusta University residence halls and the cutting-edge resources of the adjacent Harrison Education Commons. We continue to grow to serve our students’ needs. DCG is expanding right along with the campus, continually adding new programs, facilities, equipment and innovations to ensure a second-to-none education for our students and excellent treatment for our patients.

Of course, we also recently changed our name to better reflect the breadth and scope of our role as Georgia’s sole dental college, and we have introduced a new seal to complement the name change. We are very proud of this visual symbol of our college and are excited to move forward with our strongest-ever identity and sense of purpose. Along those lines, our students spearheaded the creation of a class ring, which is available both to students and alumni. How proud you’ll feel to recognize your fellow classmates at a glance wherever you travel. And how pleased we are to make this available to you.

Our magazine has received a facelift as well. The new design offers the same great content you’ve come to expect – feature articles about our exemplary students, residents, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as documentation of DCG news and events. But the new look, echoing our other changes, provides a larger landscape to publicize our critical mission in leading the state’s commitment to excellent oral health.

We hope you enjoy the changes and welcome your feedback for ongoing improvement. Let us hear from you!

Message from Alumni Association President Michael E. Pruett, DMD

I am extremely excited to be the new president of The Dental College of Georgia Alumni Association. The DCG Alumni Association is an organization of over 2,000 members worldwide. Our goal is to help DCG alumni connect and stay in touch with each other as well as with their alma mater. Our experiences as graduates connect all of us in a very special way, so I hope you will use this website as a means to keep that connection current, no matter where life takes you.

Hugs at the 50th Dinner Membership in the Alumni Association is free and takes effect the moment you graduate. Membership offers many benefits, as your relationship with The Dental College of Georgia should not end at graduation.  There is much the DCG can do for you throughout life and much that you can, and are encouraged to, do in support of your alma mater.

During my tenure, I would like to ask each of you, as alums, to do just one thing: Come back. Come back to see, hear and feel the atmosphere of your alma mater. Come back to see the beauty of our new building with our state of the art teaching facilities on campus. Come back to feel the pride that the newest students on campus feel at being part of such a prestigious institution.

Come back because it is still your University, and never has there been a better time to renew your pride in all that it represents to our local community, to the nation and—these days, with the extended travel and accomplishments of our students—to the world. If it’s been a while, let us know you’re coming and we will welcome you.

GolfSo I invite you to return to campus for Reunion and Homecoming, help us recruit talented students to the DCG or simply send a note to let us know of any big changes in your life. Your classmates will be happy to hear from you.

In closing, our Alumni Association is only as strong as the sum of its parts. You have a dedicated Board of Directors, poised to serve your interests. Let us know what you see, hear and feel about The Dental College of Georgia, and we’ll do our best to represent you.

Thank you for visiting the Alumni and Friends website. Please re-visit this site often for updates on alumni news and events. When you return to Augusta please stop by the DCG and visit, I’ll be looking for you on campus.
