FAMILY DAY is a fall campus tradition when the families of first-year dental students visit the dental college and get a glimpse of what their students will experience during their dental education. After enjoying lunch together, guests took a tour of the facility and were led through several fun, hands-on projects in the Thomas P. Hinman Simulation Laboratory and Wet Lab to experience a few skills that the students will master in the coming years. Although the class members will quickly become like family to each other locally, Family Day provides a chance for their friends and relatives to gain a greater appreciation of their new life as dental students as they cheer them on from back home!
