White Coat Ceremony

This August, we will welcome more than 100 students to the School of Dental Medicine. The White Coat Ceremony is an important rite of passage as our students begin a new chapter of their lives. To welcome incoming predoctoral, advanced standing, and dental hygiene students, each is presented with a personalized white coat to wear throughout dental school.

The White Coat Ceremony receives support in part from the Harry K. Zohn (DMD ’84) and Cecile A. Feldman, DMD White Coat Endowment Fund as well as contributions from our alumni and friends.

If you wish to send an incoming student some words of encouragement as they embark on a time of intense study and personal growth, please consider making a $75 donation to support the White Coat Ceremony and welcome our incoming students.

The class of 2025 will be receiving their coats on August 27, 2021 at 1:30pm in the Alumni Hall 7th floor Auditorium.

Due to current restrictions on gatherings, the size of the ceremony is still under consideration. We will update finalized information here on our website and in our social media as soon as plans are confirmed.


Thank you for supporting this Pitt Dental Medicine tradition!
