BDS '71 Reunion
The class of BDS '71 held its reunion in London from May 12 - 15, 2000. Ten of our classmates with their families attended the event. It was a time of reminiscing and strengthening of our bonds. Visits were made to the London Eye located near Westminister next to the river Thames and places of interest of course not forgetting restaurants. It was a successful reunion and for those who couldnot make it, do join us for our 30th year reunion which will be held in Singapore on December 2001.
Chew Chong Lin
The commencement ceremony, held on Wednesday, 27 September 2000 was a landmark event in the history of the Faculty. For many reasons. Formerly known as the convocation ceremony, the name change accompanies many other changes in the University under the new leadership of VC Professor Shih Choon Fong. It is also historic that the first convocation of the millennium is held in the newly opened University Cultural Centre on campus. For both undergraduate and graduate students of the faculty, it was the culmination of years of study and perseverance. Of special mention is our graduate, Dr Marlene Teo, who achieved the BDS (Honours), an uncommon feat. Congratulations to Marlene and all graduands!

Welcome Tea for Residents 10 July 2000
This is a bumper year with regard to the number of graduate students in the Faculty. It also marks the introduction of the Graduate programme in Endodontics. A welcome tea for all new residents was held at the Dental Library on the evening of 10 July 2000. This gave our new residents a chance to mingle and get acquainted with other residents as well as teaching staff. It was especially helpful for residents who were from neighbouring countries and had graduated from other dental faculties. At the tea, the Dean and Head of the Graduate Programme in Dentistry, Prof Chew Chong Lin, welcomed all the residents to the Faculty and introduced them to the Staff involved in the Programmes.
