The University of Florida College of Dentistry Class of 2017 celebrated a major step in their education process during the 2015 Annual White Coat Ceremony on June 19 at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on the UF campus in Gainesville. The ceremony marks the transition from didactic learning and practicing skills in a simulation laboratory, to working with patients in the predoctoral dental clinics under faculty supervision.
There were hundreds of family members and friends at the ceremony to celebrate the accomplishment. Craig L. Oldham, D.M.D., vice president of the college’s Academy of Alumni and Friends, congratulated the class on behalf of alumni, and Ralph C. Attanasi, D.D.S., president of the Florida Dental Association, shared well wishes and words of wisdom.
