White Coat Ceremony

Pitt Dental Medicine is happy to announce that the Class of 2024 White Coat Ceremony has been rescheduled and will take place on Saturday, March 5, 2022 at 11 am in Alumni Hall 7th Floor Auditorium.

Seating is limited, but students will be invited to bring up to 8 guests. All guest names and contact information will need to be submitted to the University to comply with Pitt's COVID protocols, and guests will be required to wear a face covering indoors and follow Pitt’s Health Rules.

The White Coat Ceremony is an important rite of passage as our students begin a new chapter of their lives.

To welcome the predoctoral students in the class of 2024, 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.
