It's all been leading to this, grads.

Congratulations Grads

Though we cannot be together, commencement is still worth celebrating. After four long years, we have worked together to become the very best we can be. We have treated patients from all across our local and state area, working to improve their lives and provide the best possible care we can. You are leaving West Virginia University as dental professionals - both dentists and hygienists. 

Let's go, Mountaineers.


Meet the Grads

School of Dentistry

Carrying on the family medicine background

"We get so much more clinical experience than most programs due to having a smaller class size. The smaller class size allows you to become close with colleagues in your class. I’m fortunate to be walking away from dental school with lifelong friends."

Looking forward to caring for the community

"My rural rotation experience increased my confidence as a provider and provided far more experience than could have been obtained in the school's clinical setting. "

Once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer

"The Center for Research and Education in Technology (CRET) gave me the opportunity to work with cutting-edge dental materials and technologies.  Having exposure to these cutting-edge technologies that the ever-changing world of dentistry has to offer will be extremely valuable to my dental career in private practice."
