Dean’s Message to the Class of 2023

Dear Class of 2023 Graduates:

I want to let you know how proud I am to have had the opportunity to share in your life and goals while you were enrolled at the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. It was, indeed, a privilege and a pleasure to serve as your Dean and share in your growth during this remarkable time in your life. The faculty and staff of the Dugoni School are also proud to have you as part of our family and welcome you into the ranks of our amazing graduates. We all look forward to seeing your impact and watching you grow in your personal and professional lives.

Our DDS, IDS, Hygiene, and Residency classes have all been a part of our 127-year history based on excellence and commitment to strong values. You are resilient and courageous. It was inspiring to see you transform into confident and competent leaders in our great profession. You have all created a legacy of excellence and paved the way for yourselves and all the students and residents who will follow you at the Dugoni School of Dentistry. I am so proud of each of you and the leaders you will be for our profession and school.

On behalf of the entire Dugoni School family, I wish you success, great personal satisfaction, and happiness in your future endeavors. May your greatest expectations be fulfilled as you make choices based on your hopes and dreams, and may you have all that you can imagine. Please keep in touch and let me hear from you often. Please make the time to join and engage with our great Alumni Association and take advantage of the Dugoni School CE opportunities as a way to stay connected with your school. I look forward to seeing you at future alumni events and celebrating your achievements.

Thank you for being a resilient and passionate class!

Be well,
