D1 households descend upon college for crash course in dentistry
D1 Stephanie Reeh (far right) looks over her husband Zachary Reeh's shoulder as he attempts to prepare a cavity for a filling during Family Day on April 14.
“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.
