2015 White Coat Ceremony
Saturday, August 8, the UTSD Alumni Association sponsored the 20th Annual White Coat Ceremony. Several alumni participated as "coaters" to help welcome the next generation--some sons, daughters or staff--to the beginning of their journey into their dental careers. One first year dental student was coated by his father and grandfather, both dentists, marking three generations of dentistry in their family. Dr. Kenneth Horowitz served as keynote speaker.
The UTSD Alumni Association welcomes the Class of 2019 to our family and wishes them all the best as they begin dental school.
Heartfelt thanks to our 2015 White Coat Sponsors. Your contributions have left their mark on our future!

Helping Our Future

The UTSD Alumni Association has created a program to collect teeth for Dental Students.  We are asking Alumni to save extracted teeth in mason jars the association will provide, free of charge. Dental students need help in collecting teeth for lab practicals, mock boards, Boards, and various other restorative and endodontic activities.

The Alumni Association will also coordinate drop off and pick up of the jar(s) from your office.Contact Dr.Joe Piazza at jmpiazzajr@gmail.com or Kathy Zwieg at kzwieg@comcast.net for more information.Please help our future alumni with this important requirement!
