Last week, was our official start to the new school year 2020-2021. School is year round for us so as quick as the year ends (3rd week in April) , the new one starts back up. For my class, it’s our last year, the one year where you, finally and at last, know what to expect and what is expected of you, because traditionally your entire schedule is being in clinic 98% of the time. (We would have had 2 classes that met for an hr once a week this entire semester.) You pretty much know like the back of your hand, the ins and out of clinic, bread and butter dental procedures, patient management and all things dental school related. Well obviously, things are looking a little Continue reading “D4 – The New Normal”
No but really….
Anyways, this is my crew 17 strong in NOLA for my bachelorette party in January. It was everything I could have imagined and a billion times more. Filled with great food, great drinks, great people and great music.

It’s been a minute. My apologies. I had quite the last couple of months, from nonstop studying for Finals in April to Boards which I took May 20, to just life in general (struggled passing a class, car got towed $$$$, fiancé moved in etc) Like I said LIFE. I’m almost traumatized from how much was going on but I’m so happy I made it Continue reading “Back from BOARDS! (NBDE pt 1)”
With privilege, comes pressure.
I’m just here to serve the people God assigned me to.
Happiness is an inside job.
A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new.
So I have a number of peers that are soon heading to Dental or Med School. (CONGRATS again guys!) And some have asked me to share some tips on how I made it through my first year! Obviously, I wasn’t an M1, but much of what we experience academic wise (many of my classes were and are taught by Med Continue reading “First Year – Keys 2 Success”
