​Integral to our school's success

​Fostering a collaborative work environment that empowers individuals to contribute to our mission

In the School of Dentistry, our people are our greatest asset. We are most successful when our people actively participate at all levels and know their ideas are valued.

Our staff are essential to the success of the UCSF School of Dentistry. Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Dan Lowenstein considers all staff to be equal colleagues in partnership with the faculty and students at UCSF. We embrace this philosophy in the School of Dentistry and strive to do everything we can to ensure every one of our staff members feels heard and valued. Each of us has an equally important role in helping the school achieve success.
