Giving is a family affair for the Eisenhuths

For the Bengsons, Cap and Gown fund is a family affair

One of the ways Bengson shows his gratitude for the School of Dentistry is participating in the cap and gown fund, through which alumni and donors sponsor the cost of graduation regalia for all graduates. Bengson believes it’s important to pay it forward and provide inspiration for students who are just getting started.
