Watching the New England Patriots play with Gordon Gronkowski.

Benjamin Medina meets Gordon Gronkowski

About 6 weeks ago I was visiting with my son on the phone and he mentioned that he would LOVE to see Tom Brady play before he retires.  Living in New England these last few years has been a gift with the the Patriots as the home team.  We started looking on the internet at the games scheduled for this year and what the possibilities of going to a game would be. It appeared that the New England Patriots in Pittsburgh game would be out best bet. My son Ben lives in Ohio now, Empty next syndrome and all of that.  I haven’t seen his new apartment, or his place of employment. To be honest, I knew the game would be fun, but I just wanted … Continue reading →

What is an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant?

Michelle illustrates Isolite (II)

What is an EFDA? Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA) programs are designed to train Certified Dental Assistants and Registered Dental Hygienists in the art of Restorative Dentistry.

The Adventures of Quinny

Quinny makes its home.

We were so disappointed that Samantha, also known as Quinn or Quinny in our office,  was not going to be able to join us for Yankee Dental 2016.  Samantha was just a bit too busy to join us this year,understandably,with her first baby’s birth being any day now. I’m not sure who came up with the idea, but it was suggested that we make a cutout of Quinn and take photos of her on our Boston excursions, that way she would ”be with us”.  Doing this added some fun to our annual trip to Yankee Dental Conference. We sure had a ton of chuckles as we were running around town taking photos.  I hope we didn’t lose any of our FB … Continue reading →

Ground breaking news from your dental assistant out in Kenya!

Kenya Greenheart Tree- the new toothbrush!

“Recently I came across a young man brushing his teeth with what appeared to be a normal stick. Upon farther investigation, I was informed that this was no ordinary stick toothbrush.

Would this be something that I can bring back to our patients at Seasons of Smiles Dental in Camden, Maine? So I set out to do some fact-finding.
