First day of classes | ✌🏻
The day has finally come where I am officially a dental student! Wow, I can’t believe this day has finally come. At the start of this Instagram account, I was a pre-dental student trying to navigate the application portal and not knowing if I would have a successful cycle. And here I am sitting in one of the seats at dental school!
The entire week of orientation felt like I was in a dream and had to keep reminding myself that this was real. The energy from my classmates was crazy and I could tell each one of us worked hard to get to this point. I know we’ll succeed to become amazing dentists 🙆🏻♀️
Of course, the first class was clinical anatomy and I’m already overwhelmed 😂 (I went to the library three times already and made friends with the security guard hahaha I will definitely be there often). I used to study here for the DAT so it feels surreal to be studying actual dental school material in the same seat 😱 I’m afraid, excited, and nervous but truly so grateful to be part of the class of 2025. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else hehe
So here’s to another 4 years in Boston and to year 1!
Peep our class scrub color wine 🍷 what’s even more special is that one of my friends who graduated from Tufts Dental, this was her class color hehe

First day of tooth fairy school! 🦷🧚🏻♂️🏫 Feeling grateful and excited to start the next step of my dental journey at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. #TUSDM #D1 #D25 #DMDtobe
Given the fickle nature of the pandemic and recent uptick in transmission of the delta variant, most instruction, including today's lectures, will still be remote—I just wanted to show off my new scrubs. Also included is my actual #ootd. …
A little mingling and kayaking never hurt nobody!#asdadistrict1 #tuftsasda #bewellasda #leadershipretreat …
Paddles up!! 🛶 Our Tufts ASDA Cabinet members, Christine Lee, Sam Rivera, Hannah Tran, Shafa Nathani, Aimee Parado, and Maggie Wu, who are elected on the ASDA District 1 Executive Board attended a Summer Leadership Retreat in Portland, Maine!
Lots of fun and smiles were shared amongst the members through the outdoor sea kayaking tour as they explored a former military fort built in the 1860s. The day ended with a social at a local brewery!
Huge thanks to asdadistrict1 for organizing this terrific event and your commendable efforts! #tuftsasda #bewellasda #tusdm …
How is it end of July already?🤨🤷🏻♀️
And like that I’m almost done with my first month of Endodontics residency and it has been one of the BUSIEST months ever🥵
We basically hit the ground running since day 1. Full days of zoom classes with all the post-graduates, Intro to Endodontics filled with loads of clinical information with squeezed in sessions of assisting PGY2 and practicing on extracted teeth using microscopes🔬
A good word we’ve been using to describe our lives is “bootcamp”. Bootcamp of all the possible information that we’ll need before starting clinic & 1.5 hrs of zoom classes to re-learn some of the classes we took in dental school in less than 6 weeks… Ppt slides are accumulating exponentially as I speak😬
I get a planner every year and I basically haven’t really used one for last 2-3 years and now it’s COMPLETELY FILLED with assignments, presentations, exams and possible lecture captures (because I zoned out after first half of the zoom classes😶🌫️)
But the classes are coming to an end by early August and we had our chairemony! (yes we get our very own operatories!💺)
Soon we’ll be seeing patients!🤓🦷
Didn’t have much of a summer but it’s all worth it🥰 (it rained all of July in Boston anyways😂🥲) Hopefully we’ll all get to enjoy August a little more😎💖

✨1st Day of Dental School✨
Words can not explain how excited I am to start at Tufts. It has been a long journey, but my steps are guided by God and I’ve not been steered wrong thus far!🙏🏾 On to the next chapter! ✨

Look, I’m just happy to be here 🙌🏽
Preparing for my first patient last night, I prayed to God that everything would go smooth today… a few minutes into my prayer I changed my request to— I pray that no matter what I’m faced with, I handle it with grace and confidence. Everything can go “wrong,” but that’s how you learn and grow, and I’m completely fine with a little character building. God is working. He placed some amazing people in my life to tackle this journey with. MAN, I’m just filled with so much gratitude 👩🏽⚕️🤍 …

Favorite Thing about TUSDM/Why you chose Tufts: It's exhausting when you're not being yourself. From the interview, I knew I wanted to go to Tufts because I didn't have to pretend to be someone else. Students and faculty truly want to get to know who you are. Whether it's Mrs. Maria greeting you on the 6th floor after a long day in pre-clin or getting to catch up with classmates, Tufts truly promotes a familial experience!
Fun Fact About yourself/Things involved in outside of School: Fun fact — I've lived in four different continents. Other fun facts — When I'm not in school, I enjoy exploring and traveling around town (especially by checking out the best spots to eat). Whether it's playing an instrument (piano/clarinet) or going to concerts/shows, music has always been a big part of my life.

Favorite Thing about TUSDM/Why you chose Tufts:I appreciate Tuft's focus on wellness, whether it be our own wellness as a student or the overall wellness of our patients through the comprehensive care that we provide. I think that focusing the overall being rather than just compartmentalized aspects is very important for the way we look at education and healthcare in the future. Beyond that, I feel like how I ended up at Tufts was rather preordained. When I first started to consider dentistry back in 2011, I googled "What classes do I need to take to get into dental school" and the Tufts Admissions page was the first link I clinked. Then when I came here to interview, later that day I was walking the freedom trail and bumped into my aunt (also from California) on vacation and we had no idea either of us were here at the same. In a way I feel like I was always supposed to go here.
Fun Fact About yourself/Things involved in outside of School: When I'm in not in school I enjoy running. I go running most days of the week, even if it's cold. I find it to be very meditative. I also enjoy going to breweries to try local beer, and taking slow meandering strolls through used bookstores to see what I can find.

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? My favorite thing about Tufts is that we have access to sooooooo many resources. Every time I turn around, I’m learning about another beneficial resource.
My favorite thing about Boston most definitely has to be the architecture. My first time in Boston was in 2014 for a graduation and the one thing that constantly stood out was the interesting architecture.
Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? I love my pup, Opal. She really is the dog version of me. I love, love, love, love running and the outdoors. I also put 3 places as my hometown because I was born in New Orleans then moved to CA, but I literally visited/lived in all three places. I have had the beautiful opportunity to be influenced in all ways by all 3 cities as well.

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? The Energy. The city is always active and thriving. It’s very different from my quiet town in Florida.
Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? I used to be a Youtuber who made compilations of Twitch Streamers. I had a few videos with over a million views.
