Clinic induction ceremony signals transition from classroom and lab work.

The West Virginia University School of Dentistry Dental Hygiene Class of 2020 celebrated entry into the patient care portion of their program.

The 22 rising juniors have successfully completed two years of academic studies.

Over the next two years, the students will work toward their Bachelor of Science degree completing patient treatment, didactic, laboratory and research work.

On Friday, May 18, the Department of Dental Hygiene hosted the students and their families for a "White Coat" Ceremony marking the next step in their dental school career.
