White Coat Ceremony

New dental and dental hygiene students took part in a ceremony Aug. 22 to mark their entry into the profession. The 120 DMD and 30 dental hygiene students donned the white coat and recited a pledge accepting responsibility to patients, the profession, and the community.

About 900 people attended the White Coat ceremony, and 700 toured the school following the event. In addition to dental school faculty, staff, students and their families, two fourth year dental students from Poland attended as part of their dental exchange program experience.
