School of Dentistry helps kick off the 2016 commencement season

Loma Linda University Provost Ronald Carter, PhD, carries the university mace down the center aisle at graduation.

At the commencement ceremony for Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, which was held Sunday, May 29, on the lawn between Loma Linda University School of Dentistry and Loma Linda University Church, a total of 190 graduates were honored with degrees in dentistry — 151 DDS degrees and 39 dental hygiene degrees.

The photographs below tell the story of commencement, showcasing the excitement that comes after a great deal of hard work and years of dedication. All of the graduates have dedicated themselves to their chosen career, and with the support of school staff, faculty, family and friends, they now have one thing in common. They are all graduates of Loma Linda University School of Dentistry.

Congratulations graduates!
