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.
