The class of 2022 chose Bartow Arena as the venue for their ceremony to allow plenty of room for family and friends and to join the occasion. Among a program that includes an annual Lister Hill Lecture commencement address and remarks from alumni and state dental leadership, the school will recognize the outstanding academic efforts, leadership, and service of more than 40 student award winners during the ceremony.
