Finals

...special shout out to Starbucks for seeing me through...

Memorable Moment

I was fortunate to attend one of few dental assisting programs which offers a coordinated internship program with a four-year college/university. 
I had the opportunity to assist with restorations, fillings, extractions, and root canals; it was a unique and rewarding experience to intern alongside fellow dental career students (dentists and hygienists). Meanwhile, we had a wonderful internship coordinator/liaison whose been working with dental, hygiene, and assistant students long before many us were even born! As a former dental assistant, she was well aware of the specific challenges we face as dental assistants and has been a "mother hen" to us all...giving advice and helping each of us feel comfortable and informed as we transition not only into a new environment but career. Well, on the last day of the internship program, my classmates and I surprised her with a small gesture of appreciation. It was the least we could do for a person so dedicated and kind. 

SURPRISE!!!

Practice Makes Perfect

...this is harder than it looks. Well here goes LOL...learning how to create alginate impressions for the first time... Yay! So, after a few attempts I was able to get the alginate loaded into the tray, and onto the typodont before it began to set. 
Wallah!!!
