On May 28, 2014, the Pacific Dugoni family gathered to showcase and celebrate accomplishments in research, clinical dentistry and community service. The 16th Annual Pacific Research Day and 14th Annual Clinical Excellence Day consisted of poster presentations, case presentations featuring patients, a keynote speech and an awards ceremony. For the first time, this year's Excellence Day featured a student, Deborah Chau '14, as the keynote speaker who spoke about research from the student perspective.
Excellence Day is a long-standing tradition that allows the Pacific Dugoni community to share their projects with colleagues, friends and family. Although there is a competitive component, Excellence Day is a collaborative celebration of the multi-dimensional interests and talents of the Dugoni School of Dentistry.
