Why Give

Because you care
Since 1968, the LSU School of Dentistry (LSUSD) has been the only dental school in the state. The oral health of the people of Louisiana depends on our continuing to educate the highest quality dental practitioner.



Today, 70% of the dental health care providers in the state are graduates of LSUSD. Our graduation rate is 98.9%.

A look at the numbers
Many people assume that the dental school gets most of its funding from the State of Louisiana. In fact, less than 38% of our budget comes from the state general fund.

In addition, few people realize that the cost to educate a dental student is much higher than what tuition covers. A comparison of tuition costs at every dental school in the United States shows that LSUSD offers the lowest tuition for dental students nationwide.

We make every effort to generate additional sources of revenue through clinic income, hospital contracts, and private and public grants. Collectively, however, these revenue sources cover only the most basic operational expenses. That's why your support matters.
