The Color of Dentistry

Did you know there was an official color for Dentistry?  Yes, Lilac was chosen in 1897 by the National Association of Dental Faculties.  It inspires compassion, purpose, and inspiration.

Here is a graduation gown for one of my classmates for her AGD (Academy of General Dentistry) ceremony.  My cap and gown were nearly identical to this when I graduated from dental school.  I wondered why all the bright color?  Why purple, lavender or whatever this was? (It's Lilac).  Now, I am pleased with this great color for our profession.  It's happy, professional and beautiful.
