BCD Family Day 2012

D1 households descend upon college for crash course in dentistry

“They were all thrilled about the high speed drill that I was sure to inform them spun at over 200,000 RPMs,” said Reehs, who also was joined by her parents and in-laws. “Let's just say my husband's prep turned out like the majority of the preps the D1s did on their first day in operative lab!

“I truly believe they got a good taste of what being a D1 student in Lab 30 looks like.”

Every year, Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry hosts the event to orient D1 and DH1 families to the college. The 2012 Family Day had nearly 350 participants, who attended a coffee reception, presentations, interactive lab and clinic activities, and lunch. Students also had the opportunity to take their families on a tour of the dental school.
