We're DONE!

         Well, sort of.  The Class of 2016 has successfully completed the first semester of the CSI Dental Hygiene Program.  We have learned so much this semester as we start our journey to becoming dental professionals.  It has not been without it's share of struggles and tears, but we have also had many triumphs and successes.  What a great group of women we have, and we would not be where we are without our wonderful professors!  See you all next year!

Giving Back
It's the time of year where we often reflect on all of the blessings and good fortune we have.  Because we all have been blessed SO much, we wanted to give back to a family in our community.  We chose a family that had experienced tremendous hardship this past year and needed a little extra help with Christmas cheer.  We were so fortunate to be able to purchase  gifts and food for this family.  It really helped us all get into the Christmas Spirit and remember what this time of year is all about.  Merry Christmas!!!

Oral Health Clinic
   A few times per year, the dental hygiene clinic hosts an oral health clinic that allows individuals from the community to receive treatment for cavities etc, at a reduced cost.  We were given the option to help assist in the clinic during the procedures.  We were also able to practice more with sterilization, as well as gain a better understanding of the different instruments that are used for specific procedures.  It was very exciting to participate in, especially for those of us who hadn't previously been dental assistants.

CSI Carnival 2014

      Every year CSI does a carnival in October.  Each of the clubs on campus are invited to set up a booth and share what they are all about, while also entertaining the youth in our community.  The dental hygiene program is part of the CSI Smiles Club and as such, we decided to set up a booth for free face painting!  It was a great success!

IDHA conference :)

Our trip to Boise for the conference, table clinics and oral cancer walk was a success! We started out with a great meal and wonderful company at the Olive Garden and then got lost trying to find our rooms in the hotel ! The riverside hotel has so many hallways FYI. The speakers were great the next day and then the power went out right when we were about to present. We handled it like champs and did our thing!! Everyone did a great job and congrats to Brook and Trisha for taking second place :)) we are all so proud of you. To finish our weekend off we had a great oral cancer walk and were all very inspired by eric. 

CSI rocks !!!!! We had fun, did a great job and are lead by some of the best women around!
