I don't know about you but I am wearing my PPE's......

Today in Clinic we learned about eye washing and then got to try out our eyewash stations. We all learned why we need to ALWAYS wear our PPE's. We had to do a 30 second trial of the eyewash and it nearly killed us. It is recommended that if you get a hazardous chemical in your eye it must be rinsed 10-15 mins. unless otherwise noted on the SDS sheet......NOBODY wants to do the eyewash that long......... PROTECT YOURSELF!

Back in Saddle... Chair, that is.


Don't let these smiles fool you!  The first week back at school had us all wishing that summer had remained just a little longer.  Two of our classmates got married over the summer (not to each other, mind you). Congratulations Cody and Caitlyn; you both made beautiful brides!  Many of us worked, traveled to exciting places (France, Alaska, Texas), and of course we studied our butts off (wink, wink). The summer was a well deserved break, but we're back in the saddle... saddle chair, that it.  We're ready to work hard during our senior year and kill us some board exams next spring. #RDHorbust

P.S.  One day... We will have a picture of us where all our eyes our open.  Today is not that day

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.
