White Coat Ceremony

Students recite the oath at the 2013 White Coat Ceremony.

An annual event, the White Coat Ceremony symbolizes the beginning of our students' clinical experience and emphasizes their role as health care providers. The program focuses on professionalism in dentistry. Speakers from the dental school and medical community emphasize the professional values of integrity, ethical behavior, respect for all patients and responsibility to the community. Students are presented with personalized white coats, an alumni pin and certificate of recognition.
