Ice Cream Social
Sunday, July 15, ASDOH hosted an ice cream social for the incoming class members and their families. This provided the first opportunities for the students to meet each other and meet the leadership team of ASDOH. Students and family members took tours to experience a taste of ASDOH life.
White Coat Ceremony
ASDOH’s White Coat Ceremony is traditionally held on the first day of classes, encouraging new students to embrace an attitude of professionalism and collegiality from the start of the dental school experience.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Alan Finkelstein, is a nationally recognized dental leader who gave an inspirational talk to the class. His remarks were preceded by the National Anthem, played by Dr. Jessie McGuire on his trumpet. In addition, Dr. George Bluespruce gave an Indian blessing at the ceremony. As part of the ceremony, the students read and took the ASDOH oath to the profession, initiating them into dental school.
