Impressions 60th Anniversary Special Edition

Since 1964, UBC Dentistry has graduated over 3,500 dental professionals—from the Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program, Dental Hygiene Degree Program (DHDP), several graduate programs and former Dental Hygiene Diploma Program—who have gone on to practice, educate and do innovative research across the globe, all while making a difference in their communities.

In this special 60th anniversary edition of Impressions Magazine, we connect with graduates from each of the last six decades to learn more about their time at UBC Dentistry and how it shaped where they are today. With so many amazing alumni, this edition offers just a small snapshot of the many talented dentists, hygienists, researchers, educators and specialists who are proud to call themselves UBC Dentistry alumni.
