first composite filling.

I placed my first composite filling this week!

With the completion of our first year training, we can do stuff that EFDA’s can do- that is, everything reversible. The student dentist I was assisting asked if I wanted to fill her prep with composite. YESSSSS!

I placed a little bit of increment, cured it. Of course, she then filled out the prep, contoured it and made it perfect again. I cannot wait for next year.

Meanwhile… hello dentures. If making one denture takes up an entire semester-long class, I don’t know how we’re going to do multiple dentures for our patients next year. Sometime between now and next year we’ll just get magically good.

“Next year”. These two words give me so much hope and strength to keep going.
