Our mission is to provide events and resources to help students cope with the adjustments and stresses of dental school. Our goal is to take care of the physical, emotional, intellectual, occupational, and environmental wellbeing of the student body, so that everyone can make the most of their experience at UB Dental.
Dogs are available to play with during lunch hours for students throughout the academic year. Dogs can help reduce stress; after students visited and played with these puppies they left energized and relieved for their afternoon classes.
MASSAGE THERAPY - FREE
Massage therapy is offered to give students an opportunity to relax after class. It is held after school in a quiet atmosphere.
STEP OUT FOR WELLNESS
The Step Out for Wellness Challenge helps students ensure they are keeping track of their physical health and well-being by calculating their daily steps.
Stop by our student lounge to take a break and play some board games with your peers!
Yoga is a very helpful way to keep the mind relaxed. This past semester, 12 sessions of free yoga was offered to help students better their physical and mental health. Yoga allows participants to move around, check in with their bodies and release tension.

Fruit and healthy snacks are distributed in the Student Cafe and Student Lounge twice a week for the dental students. Bringing fruit to the students helps healthier eating habits and provides snacking alternatives throughout their school day.
FINALS STUDY BREAK
Finals time is very stressful for all students. Here at UB Dental we offer study breaks with refreshments and a variety of veggies and dip, Greek yogurt, granola bars, and fruit juice. This encourages students to take a wellness break while studying for finals.
