Global Health Nexus, Winter 2002

Second Annual White Coat Ceremony

The Class of 2005 was warmly welcomed on September 5, 2001, as NYU Dentistry rolled out its Second Annual White Coat Ceremony. “We have great confidence in our entering students,” said Dean Alfano. “We want them to know that from day one and also to know that the faculty will be with them every step of the way.”

After a talk by Dean Alfano on “Ethics and Integrity in Dental Practice,” the students heard from Dr. Robert J. Garofalo, president of the NYU Dentistry Alumni Association. Then, one by one, each student was called up to be cloaked by a faculty member. The ceremony concluded with both a Student Pledge and a Faculty Pledge affirming mutual commitment to professionalism, humanism, integrity, and ethics, and, in the case of the faculty, to creating a partnership with students on behalf of excellence in scholarship, clinical care, and research.

Following the ceremony in Saklad Auditorium, students and faculty joined together in a less formal setting for a reception in a tent outdoors that had been set up especially for the occasion.
