I haven’t been writing as much- I know! It’s been a little hectic around here with dental school exams (the usual), summer approaching and my weird sleep snoozin’. I’ve been waking up in the morning feeling a little too groggy even after seven full hours of sleep. I take a lot more naps but I don’t know what’s going on...
This week we have our final GRD lab final exam! It’s a practical exam and we get four hours to complete two procedures. Now that we’re working on composite materials, I appreciate amalgam a lot more where we don’t have as many shaping-carving-polishing steps. Plus you can distinguish tell where the amalgam ends and where tooth structure begins. Not true for composite.
That’s the biggest pro of using composite though. It’s almost indistinguishable from tooth structure. I had to look in my mouth a long time to figure out which molars had composite restorations.
Only a few more weeks in this basement dental lab with my seat lonely up against the corner.
If you are already out enjoying your summer, congratulations!!! I’m daydreaming about beaches, sundresses, iced coffee runs, and train trips. Or probably really snooze-dreaming.
Let’s get through the last few weeks everyone! Ready, set, go!
