HKU Faculty of Dentistry Students Committed to Provide Professional and Ethical Patient Care Student thankful to the support from teachers and parents
 
75 Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) Year 3 students committed to take on their responsibilities of providing clinical treatments, meeting both professional and ethical standards to their patients during Clinical Pledging Ceremony 2021. The event was organized successfully on 8 September 2021 at the Prince Philip Dental Hospital. This is the fourteenth time that such a ceremony was being held. Attending the ceremony were Guest of Honor, Dr Kelvin K.W. To, Head, Department of Microbiology, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine; Professor Thomas Flemmig, Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry, and teachers. Under their testimony, BDS3 students took the oath which also marked an important milestone for them.
Addressing the ceremony, Dr Kelvin To stated the importance of patient care as every word doctors said would mean a lot to the patients and their families. He also encouraged students to learn from patients and people around such as nurses, social workers, and colleagues. “Having a career to treat patients is very gratifying,” he said.
During the Vote of Thanks, BDS Year 3 student representative Miss Kelly Sze thanked the tutors teaching them fundamental dental knowledge and skills, “They are shining examples and let us understand the veracious attitude and value of being a dentist.” She also extended her gratitude to the parents who have been supporting them enormously, especially under COVID-19, “Without their care and support, we would not be able to walk this journey and have the courage to face and overcome the challenges ahead.”
Students received name badges after taking the oath. Another student representative Mr Sunny Lai said, “The name badge signifies more than just a silver plate; it is a token of our ambition, our passion and our commitment as a dentist-to-be.”
Before the end of the ceremony, the Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry Professor Flemmig encouraged students to work hard and learn from the clinical experience. “Do good to your patients, get a good education and enjoy your profession for the rest of your life,” he concluded.
