Clinic induction ceremony marks third year of school

A spring ceremony marks a milestone for West Virginia University School of Dentistry dental hygiene students. The Class of 2021 has successfully completed two years of academic studies.

Over the next two years, the 21 students will work toward their Bachelor of Science degree completing patient treatment, didactic, laboratory and research work in the dental school’s Department of Dental Hygiene.

On Friday, May 24, 2019, in front of family and friends, the class celebrated a transition into direct patient care in the clinic induction ceremony.
