Running around (literally)

Dental bits: 
1. Your bone starts to resorb once teeth are lost. Wearing dentures (and applying constant pressure) adds to this resorption. This is why we encourage patients to get root canals to save the teeth or get implants.
2. If you don't have enough bone, you can't place implants. Think of bone as the foundation for implants!

All of a sudden, the weather's become gorgeous. The heat in the air is gone and Philadelphia evenings hold the perfect running weather. Philadelphia is gearing up for the upcoming Pope Francis visit! Penn is officially closed on Friday but everyone is nervous about Monday too. The traffic is being rerouted all over the city (as far west as 38th street!) and people are told to prep for the weekend as if for hurricanes/snow emergencies.

Look at this new stage! Mark Wahlberg is hosting the concert on Saturday. Unexpected choice to say the least...

The essentials lined up on Chestnut St. 

After an entire summer of studying for the boards and seeing patients 3.5 days/week, I had crazy back pain when I first got to Botswana. I couldn't even do some of the moves in Zumba! I've been determined to move around more and enjoy the beautiful Philadelphia nature before I (possibly) move next year. Besides, it is SUCH a luxury to be running around outdoors- with music, in the dark, along spontaneous routes- none of which I could do safely in Botswana.

Inspired by our Zumba song: "Whistle "While You Work It", I'm trying to have more fun. For example, one day I went on a hunt around the dental school to find triple trays. These trays which eliminate the need to take three impressions: PVS final impression, bite registration, and counter model. We don't have any in our regular clinics, so after peeking my head into several clinics, I was super tickled when I finally found one. We ended up not using it (plastic is too flexible), but this mini treasure hunt was super fun.

I will say: fourth year has been pretty crazy so far. I've been busier time-wise my first two years of dental school. But there are tons of things to keep track of: residency deadlines, licensing exams, competency exams, patient things, that are solely my responsibility. I can't turn to my classmate and ask when X is due... because everything is different for everyone. For example, my residency app deadlines are just coming up while my classmates have either gotten accepted (!!!) or are interviewing right now.


  1. Erotic timepieces are an important part of replica orologi history. Often going against the we introduced you to luxury watch brand Richard Mille’s RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon. The watch, slated to be out in December, will sell for a whopping $750,000 – no small amount of money for a watch designed to tease and please. Interestingly, Mille’s watch is really not what one would call erotic in the true sense of the word. The timepiece is a play on words with a mix-and-match concept of various sensual and sexy phrases on the dial, from which one can choose to display a series of different messages.grain of certain moral or ethical codes, these watches were sometimes banned or confiscated. Nonetheless many found their way to market over the centuries – much like the poses and prose in the famed Kama Sutra. the first types of erotic watches were made for the Chinese market, with the most luxurious ones created for
    replica uhren the Emperor and his entourage.By the 18th century, While the whimsical watch is an updated take on eroticism, with just 30 pieces ever being made, it is destined to be a temptress at auctions in years to come. automatons watches with moving figures on the dial emerged and they seemed the perfect mode to bring erotica to reality. These sophisticated watches were exquisite and rare, often with gold ornamentation. Those that survived the years gained in value.In fact, in an auction held a few years ago in Geneva by Antiquorum, a lot of 30+ erotic watches owned by a private collector went up for sale, with many selling for tens of thousands of replica watches. Among the highlights of the sale was Lot 187, Henry Capt, Musique d’Amour, selling for just over $210,000. The timepiece was a repeating musical watch with four actions with concealed erotic automaton playing at will.
