Dean GiannobileDear Class of 2022 Graduates,

You’ve reached the culmination of years of hard work and perseverance and we are so proud of your achievements! You have shown great perseverance throughout your time at HSDM, and even more so during the pandemic as you navigated numerous challenges. I greatly admire your patience, adaptability, and positivity. These qualities will serve you well as healthcare providers. You all have a very bright future ahead!

As you take your next steps in the profession, you will go on to residencies, clinical practices, and other exciting opportunities across the country. Your diverse interests and career paths have a common thread—you care deeply for your patients and want to make a difference in their lives. This is demonstrated in the skilled clinicians and compassionate caregivers you have become. I know you will go on to make your mark in dental medicine and continue to propel the field forward.

I hope your time at HSDM has been fulfilling both academically and personally. As an alumnus, I can assure you that the classmates and mentors you’ve met here will remain lifelong friends and colleagues. You now join a distinguished group of alumni who are leaders in the profession, devoted to making a difference in the lives of others.

I hope you will hold fond memories of the School, and stay in touch with us and with each other. On behalf of the entire HSDM community, we can’t wait to see where your dreams will take you.

Best wishes,
William V. Giannobile, DDS, DMSc96, PD96
