White Coat Ceremony

August 26, 2019  - Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall

This exciting celebration begins at 3 pm.

The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine White Coat Ceremony is an exciting part of the general assembly held at the beginning of each academic year. During this espoused tradition, incoming students are welcomed into the Pitt Dental Medicine family and receive their first white coats, signifying the beginning of their careers in dental medicine and dental hygiene.

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.

For questions about the White Coat Ceremony, please contact Nancy Poe at Office of Alumni Affairs, Salk Hall, Suite 400, 3501 Terrace Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15261.


Thank you to all 2019 donors; we can no longer accept donations for the August 26, 2019 ceremony but please consider making a donation next year.
