Celebrating Spring 2020 Milestones

Dear Dugoni School Family,

I would like to celebrate the members of our Dental Hygiene Class of 2020 as well as Dr. Dalal Hasan, the newest graduate of our International General Dentist Educator Program.

Our Dental Hygiene class was scheduled to have their pinning ceremony this past Saturday. They have already finished their finals since the academic calendar for the Dental Hygiene program runs on a semester basis.

Congratulations to the following members of the DH Class of 2020:

  • Kayla Dinh
  • Lionel Gowans
  • Seerat Kaur
  • Amy Lee
  • Leah Munyiri
  • Jacqueline Palma
  • Ajah Piper
  • Stephanie Suen
  • Steph Tu
  • Penelope Zheng

I would also like to thank Program Director Lory Laughter and all of the faculty and staff who support the program. Together you have created one of the strongest Dental Hygiene programs in California and we are proud of your leadership.

We took this class photo in mid-February (before physical distancing). It was a beautiful opportunity to gather for a moment with the class from a unique vantage point on the top of our building. This class has a bright future ahead of them and we are proud of their achievements.

In addition, I would like to congratulate Dr. Dalal Hasan, our Global Scholar from Kuwait. She is the newest graduate of our International General Dentist Educator Program.

She completed a two-year AEGD experience with us (graduating in 2017), then earned her Master’s Degree in Education from Pacific’s Benerd College. Dalal will return to Kuwait to begin her teaching career there. A special thank you to Dr. Allen Wong for overseeing our resident experience in this program and Dr. Cindy Lyon for her leadership of this collaborative program.

Congratulations to Dalal on this significant achievement!
