Marble Mementos from Dental Branch Building Available



The pink marble-clad Dental Branch building where thousands of dental careers were launched will soon be history, but alumni, employees and students can now own a small piece of it. The former home of The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston was acquired by UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and is slated for demolition, but a limited number of small keepsakes have been carved out of the marble exterior for the UTSD community. And by receiving a piece of the past, alumni and donors will help the school’s future by seeding the new UTSD Impact Fund. READ MORE
