GKT Dental Alumni Association

The GKT Dental Alumni Association was established in 2002 with the aim to encourage and provide opportunities for past dental students and staff to meet and keep in touch with each other, current students, and staff at the Dental Institute.

The Dental Institute is proud of its alumni and is in regular contact with over 7,000 dental graduates from the current and former schools including Guy's Hospital Dental School, King's College Hospital Dental School, the Royal Dental Hospital Dental School and the United Medical and Dental Schools.

'Alumni are a valued part of the Institute's wider community', says Professor Nairn Wilson, former Dean of the Institute. 'Through its strong alumni community, the Institute is able to command its pre-eminent position in dental education, research and patient services, and in turn, alumni have all the more satisfaction of being part of the heritage and future of the Dental Institute as a truly world class centre of excellence.'

Dental alumni frequently return to the Institute for class reunions and social events and the Alumni Office is always on hand to help with these arrangements. Every year the Dental Institute holds a popular professional development event for alumni, the Dental Alumni Weekend.

The Dental Circle

The Dental Circle recognises alumni, staff, former staff and friends of the Dental Institute at Guy’s, King’s College and St Thomas’ Hospitals and the Royal Dental Hospital, who very generously help us to provide current students and staff with the best facilities and opportunities that they need to succeed through making gifts of £1,000 or more each year.

The Executive Dean, Professor Mike Curtis, acknowledges Dental Circle donors as advisors, who provide both intellectual and financial resources to the Dental Institute, contributing to its advancement.
