Dental School Graduates Hooding Ceremony

Like other doctors, dental school graduates enjoy a White Coat Ceremony at graduation. Many dental schools also hold a Hooding Ceremony.

During a Hooding Ceremony, the doctoral hood is placed over the graduate’s head by a member of the school’s faculty. While this is not commencement itself, the ceremony is still a solemn occasion with a formal processional and  all participants dressed in full, formal academic regalia of robes, caps, and hoods.

The doctoral hood (video link) is larger than other academic hoods and originates in the medieval past, but still remains as part of every university’s tradition. The colors of the silk lining the hood reflect the school’s colors, while the velvet edging indicates the wearer’s specialty, in this case lilac for dental surgery/dentistry.
