White Coat Ceremony

February 11th, 2014

Nearly halfway into their dental school careers, students of the Class of 2016 don a new look.

During a Feb. 7 ceremony at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, 103 second-year dental students received their white coats. The Baylor College of Dentistry Alumni Association purchased the coats, and Dr. Carmen Smith, alumni association president, and Dr. Celeste Latham, president-elect, presented them to students. The annual event, coordinated by the Office of Student Affairs, marks students’ transition to the clinical phase of their dental school education.
