Chair, Dominic Raggi '19

I was born and raised in Washington, PA. I attended Allegheny College in Meadville, PA where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. In my spare time, I like to workout at the gym or play basketball with friends. Pittsburgh has always been my home away from home. When I started interviewing at dental schools, The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine impressed me the most. Here at Pitt, everyone is treated like family and I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to attend such a fine institution.

"I see my role in the position as a means to advertise for our school and my fellow classmates. While my thought process is still in an early phase, I desire to utilize primarily Instagram and Facebook to achieve my goals. Facebook I see as a way to keep my classmate up to date on significant events going on at the school. Instagram I envision as a way to create a community following. I plan on starting a “Pitt ASDA community” Instagram account (with permission from the school), that will serve as a way to educate the community and advertise our school. The level of knowledge I seek to deliver would be the basics. As examples, I aim to have instructional videos on how to brush and floss, videos that explain what certain procedures are, general guidelines for specialties (like when to take a child to the orthodontist), and how various commercial products (like tooth paste or fluoride work)."  -Dom R.
