THE UMKC DENTAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION was excited to once again welcome the incoming dental and dental hygiene classes by taking them out to the ballgame. Unable to offer this event last year due to the pandemic, the Dental Alumni Association extended tickets to the second year dental students and senior dental hygiene students.
The students, along with participating staff, faculty and alumni, all enjoyed the Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians game on Tuesday, Aug. 31. Attendees feasted on a pre-game tailgate with grilled favorites before heading to the game and rooting for the home team. Even though the Cleveland Indians won, the New Student Welcome game continues to be a loved tradition to kick off the academic year at the Dental School. Participants were happy to have it back this year.
