Ostrow School of Dentistry Statement on USC Athletics/Western Dental Sponsorship Agreement
28 Sep 12
On September 11, USC Athletics announced a sponsorship agreement with Western Dental. Sponsorships such as this are common in collegiate athletics and provide support for the enhancement of these athletic programs.
The sponsorship between USC Athletics and Western Dental is solely between those two entities, and does not involve the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC and its academic and clinical programs.

Questions may be directed to the Ostrow School of Dentistry Office of External Relations at (213) 740-0428.
