About Contact Point

Contact Point Online is the website of the award-winning alumni magazine of the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. This online publication is a platform to discuss issues in dental education, recognize our outstanding alumni and provide updates for our constituents about dental school happenings. We encourage you to read the stories, explore the links to additional content, browse our photo galleries and provide comments and feedback online.

Although Contact Point and Contact Point Online do not include class notes (i.e. awards, marriages, births, personal announcements), we encourage alumni to submit class notes and photos to Dugoni Online, the online community specifically for alumni. Visit http://www.dugonionline.org to share the latest events and achievements in your life. Be sure to log in or register as a new user so you can post your class notes.

About the Alumni Association

The mission of the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry Alumni Association is to foster lifelong relationships among its members and with the dental school. Our statistics tell us 40% of our more than 6,000 living alumni are active dues-paying members, an unheard-of testament to the positive feeling our graduates have for their alma mater. Each year, more than 1,500 members and guests attend the Alumni Meeting in March, and members also gather at regional reunions held throughout the country. In addition to our graduates, we welcome professionals in the greater dental community to join us as Associate Members. Learn more ›
