Congratulations To The Class Of 2020
Welcome to the UCLA Dentistry Alumni Family
On Sunday, May 31, we would have held the 53rd Commencement Ceremony for the UCLA School of Dentistry. While you would have been publicly recognized before your family and colleagues at Royce Hall to accept your Doctor of Dental Surgery degree , your postgraduate certificate or your graduate degree, we expect to conduct a formal ceremony at a later date. We can’t express to you how sorry we are that you will not be able to experience this important milestone in the traditional timeline. However, due to COVID-19, our community’s health and safety takes precedence.
To see a list of all of the graduates, please view our Commencement Program.
For a virtual graduation, please view the YouTube link.
In the first year of my deanship, I found myself surrounded by faculty, students, staff, and fellow academic leaders wanting to introduce me to the beauty of this campus, this city, and this outstanding dental school – UCLA Dentistry. I have been warmly welcomed by the entire community to what has now become my home.
Making Saliva a Serious Business
“Most people are surprised when I tell them that saliva can reveal as much, if not more, than blood or urine can. We have made it our mission to make saliva testing a clinical reality to detect for serious diseases. And we’re getting very, very close.”
Decoding Oral Health: Diana Wang, Class of 2017
“I believe there’s a little bit of pathologist in all of us,” said Diana Wang, Class of 2017. “Patients always want to know why something happened to them, and pathology helps answer those difficult questions.”
