These garments signify their entry into the world of dentistry and embody the professionalism, responsibility and commitment they choose to embrace.

The event was held in its traditional location on July 29 within the institution’s Dr. and Mrs. James L. Holly Auditorium. Esteemed faculty, mentors, family and friends gathered to applaud each aspiring professional.
