The Alpha Omega Dental Society, is over 100 years old with 100 alumni/student chapters in 10 countries. It has the distinction of being the oldest international Jewish medical organization. The society welcomes people from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, but it’s Vision, Mission, and Core values, are guided by the three tenets of Professionalism, Fraternalism, and commitment to Judaic values. Alpha Omega’s values are: Commitment; Integrity; Family; Global Oral Health; Inclusivity; Leadership and Social Justice. The foundational spirit of the Alpha Omega Fraternity is to heal the world through charitable endeavours.
The Alpha Omega memorial lecture started over 50 years ago, in memory of our departed fraters. It is an annual lecture that the fraternity provides to the entire dental community with no registration fee for attending Dental Health Professionals.
This lecture is one of two fundraising events that our local chapter holds to raise funds for our foundation. The Alpha Omega Foundation, Manitoba Chapter, is a charitable foundation that over the years has donated tens of thousands of dollars to local charities and organizations. The Canadian Museum of Human Rights; Siloam Mission; Christmas Cheer Board; Heart and Stroke; Diabetes; the Simkin Centre; the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, (which supports hundreds of charities), and the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, are amongst the many recipients of our foundation’s funds.
In 2016, an Argentinian dentist, who immigrated to Canada in 2003, passed her Canadian Dental board exams, qualifying for her Canadian Dental License. The Alpha Omega foundation, Manitoba chapter, helped support her financially, as she was going through the process of re-qualifying; we are very proud of her and thrilled our fraternity could assist her.
The Alpha Omega Foundation is proud of its history and heritage, understanding that every dollar donated makes a difference for someone whose life is less fortunate than ours.
Donations over $25.00 will receive a tax donation receipt. Thank you very much.
