Faculty Highlights



Celebrating the Generosity of our Donors

In the Faculty of Dentistry, acts of generosity seldom go unnoticed. On October 23rd, we hosted our first annual Donor Appreciation event to show how great an impact the generosity of our donors has. We invited our alumni who have so generously donated to our facilities and faculty in support of our students' learning experience, and our students to express their gratitude. It was a wonderful evening full of appreciation, laughter and joy.

See the photos from the evening.
