Congratulations to the Classes of 2010!
The College of Dentistry’s Convocation Ceremony was held June 6th in the Mershon Auditorium. The traditional ceremony honored the achievements of the Dental Hygiene and the Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) classes of 2010.
This year’s event featured a convocation address by Eric D. Fingerhut, Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, who spoke about the opportunities afforded by the state's higher education programs, which include the professional dental programs offered by the College of Dentistry. Fingerhut's keynote address was followed by the traditional hooding ceremony for D.D.S. graduates, and the presentation of awards and honors for Dental Hygiene graduates.
College of Dentistry Dean Carole Anderson presented awards and certificates of honor to members of the classes of 2010, which included 102 D.D.S. graduates, 35 Dental Hygiene program graduates, and one Doctor of Philosophy in Oral Biology graduate.
In her farewell remarks, Dean Anderson said to the newly graduated students, "This is both an end and a new beginning for you. Your days as students are over, and you're embarking on new careers as dental professionals. As you move forward to achieve your personal and professional goals, you have my heartfelt wishes for a future that includes a wonderful life and a career that is both successful and rewarding!"
