Last Day of Clinic....AHHH!!





We never  thought that this day would come...the LAST DAY of CSI DENTAL HYGIENE CLINIC!! Although, we are all ready to enter the real world of dental hygiene, it is safe to say that we will all miss our amazing faculty and not to mention EACHOTHER! It has been a great two years girls...Let's go show the world what we are made of!
p.s. Thank you to  Dr. Mazzola for our beautiful flowers! :)

Class of 2017


Our first year in the dental hygiene program has been a roller coaster already!  The general consensus is that there's a lot to learn, but we're all in it together!  Here are a few pictures from our ride thus far. ;D

Looking good, girls!

It's a bird!  A plane...?  Nope.  Just Brittany practicing pano-s.  Pretty sure she's doing it wrong. 

First day of sharpening our instruments. 
Jack Nicholson approves this sealant! ;D



 

First day of taking impressions!
 


Getting the hang of it.


 


Wheel chair demonstration. 








Xerostomia Webinar

We are feeling pretty lucky to have been taught the latest and greatest dry mouth technologies by Kristen Jarvie RDH! We are now ready to fight DRY MOUTH! Oh, and let's not all forget to NEVER chew the Dentiva mints! ;)
