Full house for our itisectionusa study club meeting last directed by our own Dr. Gheddaf Dam and the implant legend hpweber2 last evening 🙌🏼 Dr Kim our periodontist was also in attendance 😃

Had a wonderful overview of the literature regarding the need and timing of soft tissue grafting around dental implants by the talented samar_shake 👌🏼It is important for implant specialists and general clinicians to understand the difference between different soft tissue (gum) grafts, as well as have the fundamental knowledge of treatment planning implant cases that require soft tissue grafting, in order to determine weather to graft or not to graft areas that have or require #dental #implants. Our all time goal is to widen our knowledge and our experience to better serve our patients and make the best choices for/with them 🌷🎉

This week, I've been noticing lots of frenzy & stress at school as many D4's are looking for patients for their licensure exam (#CDCA) this weekend. It is hitting me that many of my beloved D20s are graduating in just a few months, and that soon it will be my turn to go through this final stage. I think #sweets & #coffee are my biggest destressors but I know this is not a sustainable method. (Also I've been telling my #patients to reduce snacking but lo behold, I'm one of zee biggest #sweettooth 🍰🍬 lol). I need more #prayers, #bibleverses, & #deepbreaths to ask God for peace and comfort in my heart. I wish all the fourth years at #TUSDM best of luck on their CDCA and if you know anyone with good class 2 &3 cavities and/or scaling & root planing, plz lemme know asap!! Their cost of treatment will be covered and many 4th years will be so #joyful to have them this weekend haha 😆🤩
.
Any tips for successful dental license exam day (CDCA & WREB)? For those who went thru it and survived, how did it go for you?

CEO of my own life 💁🏽‍♀️

I had the best time with the dental students at Tufts, BU, Harvard, UConn and UNE this weekend. Thank you for letting me speak and tell my story. I was honestly blown away and I empathized greatly with the sacrifices they have made to be at their caliber. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!

Shoutout to medprodental for sponsoring and inviting me to speak. And of course to the fabulous _brookesullivan and ashtonbrooke4 for always making me feel my best.

Anyone else have an epic weekend?
