On 11th October we held our annual Dental Scrubs Ceremony, in the Reception Room, Wills Memorial Building.
The Dental Scrubs ceremony marks the first significant milestone in our students’ professional journey, when they receive their dental scrubs and reflect on their new role and responsibilities as dental professionals.
Bristol Dental School is the only Dental school in the UK that holds a Dental Scrubs ceremony.
Following a welcome address by Mr Chris Bell, Clinical Co-director of Bristol Dental School, the topic of professionalism was discussed by Dr Neville, including reference to the Dental School’s Uniform and Dress Policy. The morning event culminated in the students receiving their scrubs.
Dr Neville would like to thank all the students for their participation during the event, and especially to Mr Chris Bell, Mrs Alison Grant, Ms Freya Shearman, Ms Sarah Bain, Mr Ashley Evans and Dr Alan Buckingham for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend this event. A special word of thanks to Louisa Pratten and Donna Parkin for their administrative support with the event.
