Heather Hastings, a first-year student at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, participated in the White Coat Ceremony on Friday, Sept. 6, at UK's Memorial Hall.

During the ceremony, 67 students, including 40 Kentuckians, received white coats representing their entry into the dental profession as student dentists.

Dental faculty also welcomed students to the dental profession as colleagues and challenged them to make a commitment toward gaining the knowledge and compassion necessary to become outstanding dentists.
