Honoring the DDS Class of 2022, IDS Class of 2022 and DH Class of 2021, the White Coat Ceremony symbolizes the beginning of our students' clinical experience and emphasizes their role as health care providers. The program will focus on professionalism in dentistry. Speakers from the dental school and medical community will emphasize the professional values of integrity, ethical behavior, respect for all patients and responsibility to the community. Students will be presented with personalized white coats, an alumni pin and certificate of recognition. White coats are generously provided by the Alumni Association and Development.
