It’s one of the most important events of the year in the Faculty of Dentistry. The excitement and emotions in the room are always palpable. And this year was no different. Students, their loved ones, donors, faculty and staff gathered to honour the third year dental class through the donning of white coats and celebrate the passage from the classroom to the clinic. The evening is also a recognition of the excellence and talent in the Faculty.
Highlights of this year included the introductory message given by Dr. Samer Abi Nader, the keynote's speaker Dr. Miriam Boillat, a student address made by Estelle Azzi, DMD '19, and Chrissa Zarafonitis, DMD '18, and a tribute to the donors made by Marie-Chantale Farhat, DMD '18.
Dr. Laura de Vreeze graciously accepted the honour of the Dr. Ralph Siverstone Teaching Award. To finish off the evening the DMD Class of 2019, donned with their white coats gave their pledge led by Dr. John Blomfield.
