Message from the Dean

Dear Class of 2012 Graduate:

Just a note to let you know how proud I am to have had the opportunity to share in your life and goals while you were enrolled at the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. It was, indeed, a privilege and a pleasure. The faculty and staff of the Dugoni School are also proud to have had you as part of our family and welcome you into the ranks of our alumni. We all look forward to watching you grow in your professional life. I have great admiration for you in the way you handled all of your challenges.

I am deeply appreciative of your Class Gift to the Pacific Dugoni Annual Fund. I am especially impressed by your incredible participation rate of 97.5 percent. I want to thank the leaders who helped make this possible.

You can read and download the presentations made at commencement, browse pictures taken at the various commencement weekend events (including the class photo taken following the graduation rehearsal meeting), and much more.

On behalf of the Dugoni School family, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you success, great personal satisfaction, and happiness in your future endeavors. May your greatest expectations be fulfilled. Please keep in touch and let me hear from you. I hope that our paths will cross again soon and often.


Patrick J. Ferrillo, Jr., D.D.S.
