Halloween was a day of celebration for students, staff and faculty alike at UNC Adams School of Dentistry on Oct. 31. Decked out in costumes that ranged from mobile ghosts to Pitbull, to iconic Disney fairies and killer dolls, everyone got into the spooky spirit to enjoy candy, costume contests, group performances and more. The Craniofacial Center also got in on the Halloween action with a patient parade through the clinic, where there was plenty of trick-or-treating and costumed fun!

ASOD’s Human Relations Committee put together a great event that was enjoyed by all, and we are so grateful for their hard work and planning!

The individual costume contest featured three winners – Tammy Collins as a ghost on wheels; Aubrey James as a moth; and Sumi Ahmed as Chucky from “Child’s Play.” The group costume contest featured Hugh Hefner with his Playboy Bunnies, a funky disco duo and the orthodontics classes as circus performers, construction workers with a traffic cone and a Top Chef/Iron Chef faceoff. The fourth year orthodontics students took the top prize for their tv-chef-contest inspired faceoff. Congratulations to all the winners, and we’ll see you all next year for more Halloween fun!
