As dental students, our experiences involving patient communication are rather limited. While we have the ability to practice our craft on a manikin, we can never fully prepare ourselves for the different scenarios where we may need to manage a patient in order to provide quality care. This three-part video series focuses on how to navigate difficult communication situations, so that hopefully you would be prepared when faced with a similar situation!
A few weeks ago, I went back to my hometown for my little brother’s graduation. While there, I ran into one of my favorite high school teachers, Mr. Winchell. I didn’t get a chance to talk to him or even say hi because he was so busy running the whole audio/visual set up of the entire graduation. Although he knew that what he was doing was important to graduation that day, I don’t really think he knew how important it would be to his students for years to come.
Ever hit that second snooze and wonder how many seconds you could save in the shower, cut down getting ready or maybe just skip breakfast? While the few minutes more of sleep may seem worthwhile in the moment, the empty stomach and unclear focus to your morning routine will catch up to you by noon. I started incorporating “super” smoothies (read: protein) into my morning and found an improvement in my energy levels and performance. With the help of my mom, a personal trainer of 18 years, I hope to inspire you to develop a healthy morning routine that will deliver the same success in the clinic or classroom.

By the name you might think it’s some sort of exotic fruit or an impossible yoga move. In fact, kombucha not only has a fruity taste, but can also be as beneficial as yoga. This specialty drink found at most health food stores has been said to help digestive health, mental clarity and mood stability. Made from a base of black tea and sugar, this drink can cost you up to $5 a bottle. On a dental student budget, finding alternatives to store-bought kombucha are a must for this latest drink craze.
We have all heard the adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This saying refers to the idea that a large amount of information can be communicated through a single image. This concept is one of the reasons why I believe that PowerPoint presentations are such a popular teaching tool. Well, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then I believe a video is worth a thousand pictures—and at 30 frames per second (which is a standard frame rate in television and digital cinema), a 30 second video literally can be. The power of a video cannot be overstated.
