Welcome to the Homecoming: Alumni Student Convention

I hope you will join me for the School of Dentistry’s Alumni Student Convention during Loma Linda University’s 2020 Homecoming event. A full schedule of dentistry-specific scientific sessions and several hands-on courses have been scheduled by the School’s Division of Continuing Education.

We invite you to join your fellow alumni, faculty, staff, and students at a reception in the Wong Kerlee Conference Center on Friday afternoon, March 6. Prepare to enjoy an afternoon of warm fellowship, an opportunity to network, and some delicious appetizers. The reception will feature a meet-and-greet session that will enable alumni and students to interact face-to-face regarding career opportunities. Alumni who are selling or leasing a practice, or looking for an associate to join their practice, will have an opportunity to network.

For those interested in reserving a table for their practice or company please contact Jeri Fowler at jlfowler@llu.edu or 909-558-4399.

This year’s event will also feature our inaugural Alumni Video Contest. Many of you will remember showcasing your creativity as dental students during the annual Pine Springs Ranch weekend. We’ve been looking for a way to engage alumni who may or may not be able to attend Homecoming weekend even as we highlight the incredible artistic talents of our alumni. Details regarding the contest will be found on page 14 of the Homecoming Preview Guide and the winner will be announced at Homecoming’s Friday afternoon reception. 

I look forward to seeing you this coming spring.
