What have you gained most from ASDA?

2014 Lambo (Haha I wish, maybe something for the fiancé) Ride around in my new scooter Either the golf tournament because I won a brand new driver despite placing 2nd to last, OR the pre-sim course because I got to cast hearts and Mickey Mouse wax patterns Free toothbrushes/ toothpaste during Dentfest (haha), the opportunity to impact the lives of pre-dents by helping out with the Presim Course and getting the chance to participate in all the ASDA events

A big part of what makes our OU ASDA chapter successful is our member involvement and dedication to service for others. Tung Nguyen has been involved with many ASDA events and we wanted to express our gratitude. At our last spring simulation course, Tung gave demonstrations on how to invest and cast waxups in gold. He was also a participant of the Bumping Dawn volleyball team for our annual tournament and also played in the 2012 ASDA Open-Wide golf tournament. Thank you Tung for representing OU ASDA like a champ! We will continue to make our members’ experience with ASDA the best that it can be. Photos by Chandler Hall, ’15 Historian

February 2013

The ASDA District 9 Meeting in Breckenridge, CO is an opportunity for students from the 5 schools in our district to network, exchange ideas, learn about opportunities within national ASDA, and listen to guest speakers who talked about financial management, how to run an effective meeting, and chapter branding. Those that attended met with vendors/sponsors including Floss Dental, Heartland, Med Pro, Aspen Dental, and Pacific Dental. The meeting is held once a year and is combined with a ski trip, which is a nice break from studying!

Session

committee is elected, the House of Delegates meet and have a business meeting to discuss and vote on ASDA policies, and where attendees learn about the latest updates on issues like licensure, workforce models, and student debt. Our chapter won several Gold Crown Awards this year which reflects the hard work put in by our own chapter leaders and members.

“My Annual Session Experience” By Raegan Vaughan, ’16 Vendor Coordinator I would have to say that my first ASDA experience at a national level was an inspiring one. Even as I stepped off of the plane back in OKC, after almost missing our connection in Chicago because of the weather, I still felt like a million bucks. The passion and dedication of all the awesome people I had met over the past four days had been highly contagious. My highlights of the trip began on the very first day with keynote speaker, athlete Kyle Maynard. This guy was a phenomenal motivator. Then again, probably anyone who can bench press 420lbs and become a state championship-caliber wrestler with under-developed arms and legs would grab my attention. The quote that really hit home with me from his speech was, “There’s always a tool to help do what we’re looking to do”. This coming from a guy who properly dressed himself for the first time at age 12 using a paperclip… After hearing Kyle’s message, I was ready to soak in as much as I could from the events that followed. As the convention progressed in the following days, I was able to absorb some tools to be effective in areas such as lobbying, networking effectively, preparing for the future of dentistry, and tying bow-ties. It was a proud moment for everyone in our chapter as we took home 5 different chapter awards from the Gold Crown Awards, which was more than any other chapter! My experience was topped off by some of Atlanta’s best BBQ (Daddy D’s), a night out on the town with new friends, and rocking the bow-ties for the President’s Gala to finish the week off. This trip was definitely one I will never forget. It was well worth the time, classes, and exams missed!

Endodontists: Partners in Patient Care A summary of the Annual Session presentation given by James Wolcott, D.D.S., Diplomate American Board of Endodontics By Diane Vincent, ’15 Publications Editor

It was Friday morning of Annual Session. Normally I would be in endo pre-clinic lab most likely cone-fitting for hours trying again and again to get that perfect fit of gutta percha to the apex. Maybe I felt a little bit guilty for missing Dr. Goldbeck’s class or maybe I have a subconscious love for endo. For some reason that morning, I was drawn to attend the breakout session presented by Dr. James Wolcott, from Santa Fe, entitled “Endodontists: Partners in Patient Care.” So regardless whether I felt guilty or secretly love endo, I felt this information was relevant to us as dental students and thought I would take some time to share the notes I had brought back from the session. The following information is a summary of the information presented by Dr. Wolcott. The Patient It is easy to think of patients as a tooth number. How we decide when to refer a patient to an endodontist should be based on patient satisfaction and his or her quality of life. Nine out of ten patients will return to an endodontist if another RCT is needed and based on the 2007 Consumer Survey, 2 to 1 patients prefer going to see a specialist over a general practitioner for endo treatment. However, this does not necessarily mean that the same percentage should be treated by endodontists. When considering the quality of life aspect of the patient and when to refer to a specialist, one must consider the efficiency and availability of a specialist to the patient. Is the patient in pain and do they need emergency treatment? Perhaps by referring to a specialist, the patient will require fewer visits and have a faster treatment schedule. Ultimately, whether we decide to refer should be based on what is BEST for the PATIENT! The Dentist The general practitioner should take into account convenience, efficiency, and positive reflection when deciding when to refer a patient out to a specialist. When a full schedule and a patient in pain collide (Rossman, 1998), the GP may decide to refer the RCT. In time, the young dentist will get better and more efficient in what they do, but they will also find out

what they do not like to do. A way for a GP to stay busy is to do what he/she enjoys most. If endo is not the GP’s thing, then they shouldn’t feel shame for not doing it. Finally, the dentist may use positive reflection in the decision making process when considering to refer to a specialist. The specialist the GP chooses needs to support the same philosophies implemented in his/ her own practice. A possible benefit to referring out is the communication between the specialist and patient. Positive remarks about the GP coming from a specialist can reinforce the credibility of that dentist. The relationship between the dentist and specialist should be a beneficial one. The Expertise Finally when making the decision to refer or not, case difficulty, success rate, and standard of care are important factors. Difficult cases may obviously be more suited for a specialist. When looking at a broad study, it has been shown that specialists and GP’s have about the same success rate of RCT, but one has to keep in mind that the majority of GP are tackling less complex cases. It is important for the GP to know his/her limitations when deciding to do a RCT. On the other hand, a limited study (Alley, 2004) has shown that endodontists have better success with RCT than the general practitioner. This appears to make sense because the specialists are supposed to do it well, and that is their expectation. Lastly, the dentist should think about the standard of care that the patient will be receiving. If the dentist cannot match the standard of care of the specialist, he/she should refer the case. Regardless of the state you live in the GP is still held to the exact same standards as the endodontist. ................................................................................................ The presentation given by Dr. Wolcott was sponsored by The American Association of Endodontics.

OU dental students travel to Treasure Beach, Jamaica for a mission trip over spring break. By Loan Vu, ’14 Historian

To see Loan’s video about her trip, follow the link below

http://vimeo.com/63193835

This past spring break, I traveled to Treasure Beach, Jamaica for a dental mission trip with 7 dental students from Oklahoma, 6 from Louisville, 4 from Iowa, a hygienist from Ohio State and 2 incredible dentists. Over the course of many years, Dr. Jim Carney, of Illinois, built a dental clinic attached to the Hopewell Church in Treasure Beach. He slowly imported 8 dental chairs from the US and set up operatories with handpieces,water, and suction! Dr. Bill Griffin, of Virginia, and founder of dentalmissiontrips.com, also co-chaired the trip and lead the spiritual mission of our trip with vespers every morning. Our team worked four days from 11:30 in the morning till often 8pm at night and ended up treating 331 patients. We performed 477 extractions, 61 cleanings, and 30 fillings. We also gave oral health instruction presentations to the elementary school attached to the church and handed out toothbrushes to the most adorable children. However, don’t worry. It wasn’t all work and no play. Our accommodations were actually private villa houses that had balconies overlooking the ocean. Every morning we would wake with the sun, grab a cup of renowned Blue Mountain Coffee and walk downstairs to sit on the beach and listen to the ocean. We also had two full days to explore the natural beauty of of Jamaica. On our first day in Jamaica, we went to YS Falls Water Park where we zip-lined and climbed a waterfall. On our last day in Jamaica, we took a boat tour through Black River where we spotted crocodiles, dolphins, and a large tree swing, while drinking from coconuts plucked fresh off the tree. I feel so blessed to have this experience. I am now so much more comfortable doing extractions and giving local anesthesia. I met some really inspiring like-minded people from across the nation. The people of Treasure Beach welcomed us with open arms and I am so grateful. I’ll be back. One day soon, hopefully.

Another successful Pre-Dent Simulation Course for OU ASDA -By Diane Vincent, DS2 Publications Editor

Do you remember when you were a pre-dental student? Choosing a career path like dentistry is a big commitment that takes time and resources in order to get a foot in the door to dental school. OU ASDA’s PreDental Committee aims to provide resources, such as the Pre-Dental Simulation Course, to aspiring dentists to help increase their chances of acceptance into dental school. The Pre-Dental Simulation Course was a success this April and many ASDA members volunteered to help give predental students an inside look on what dental school is like. The pre-dents started off the morning with a lecture in dental morphology and an intro to operative dentistry. Next, they did a wax up of a mandibular molar and learned how to take impressions of a typodont and

pour them up in stone. During the lunch break, a panel of students representing each school year were available to answer any questions that the pre-dents had regarding the application process and dental school life in general. The afternoon session consisted of tours of the school, a presentation given by Kaplan, and hands-on exercises including cutting class 1 cavity preps in plastic teeth and filling them with composite and amalgam, and investing and casting demonstrations. Around 50 pre-dental students attended from schools in Oklahoma and Texas. Any OU ASDA member can volunteer to help out with our Sim Courses. The next course is scheduled for this fall, so be sure to get involved!

Staples Society

The Staples Society represented our school at the Regional Food Bank this month. They helped box and organize goods to distribute to the Oklahoma community. 1 in 6 Oklahomans struggle with hunger and Staples has become part of the solution by taking time out of our busy school schedules and volunteering a few times each year.

The Staples Society also held a Big Brother Big Sister Event “Jump 4 Joy� at the Trampoline Elevation Park. It was a fun-filled night of eating pizza and joyfully jumping around with some great kiddos. The BBBS organization is such a great event and Staples is honored to be involved with it every year!

“Farewell to Class of 2013” With graduation  being  a  mere  one  month  away  I  on  behalf  of  the  senior  class  would  like  to  look  back,  and  re9lect  on   our  past  four  years  together.    We  have  been  through  long  and  sleepless  nights  study  biochemistry  and  anatomy,   hours  trying  to  make  our  wax-­‐ups  “smooth,”  and  days  debating  if  we  will  ever  get  out  of  here.  Yet  somehow  it   seems  like  only  yesterday  we  were  given  our  restorative  kits,  and  told  to  save  the  world  one  tooth  at  a  time.  It  also   was  not  that  long  ago  when  our  9irst  occlusal  9illings  took  us  a  three-­‐hour  clinic  period,  because  the  entire  9irst  hour   was  spent  conquering  the  rubber  dam.   Through  the  good  and  the  bad  times  we  have  gotten  closer  as  a  class,  received  a  quality  dental  education,  and   matured  as  dental  professionals.  Many  have  also  found  the  time  to  not  only  balance  their  school  lives,  but  also  their   personal  lives.  As  a  class  we  have  much  more  to  show  for  our  past  four  years  at  the  OUCOD  than  just  a  box  of  waxed   crowns  with  “ideal”  anatomy.  We  have  had  14  engagements  leading  to  happy  marriages.  We  have  also  seen   pictures  and  videos,  denoting  13  new  babies  growing  up  before  our  eyes.  Not  to  mention  the  new  babies  we  have   on  the  way. As  our  time  together  is  running  short  we  are  excited  to  say  our  farewells  in  order  to  go  our  separate  ways  to  begin   promising  dental  careers.  From  the  class-­‐-­‐-­‐will  be  going  into  private  practice,  -­‐-­‐-­‐will  be  joining  a  practice,  17  are   entering  residencies,  and  many  are  undecided.  Along  with  our  post-­‐graduation  accomplishments,  we  have   overcome  new  changes  throughout  our  education.  We  were  the  9irst  to  conquer  aXium  and  digital  radiographs,  the   9irst  to  welcome  four  students  into  our  class  via  the  Advanced  Standing  Program  For  International  Dentists  and  the   9irst  to  truly  experience  comprehensive  care  clinic.  Most  importantly,  we  had  a  distinct  reputation;  known  for  our   pranks,  chain  emails,  and  interesting  photos.  No  matter  how  far  we  are  apart  in  our  post-­‐dental  school  lives,  we   will  always  be  the  Smurf  Blue  OUCOD  class  of  2013!                   -­‐  Stephanie  McCarty,  Class  of  2013

Letter From the President ) (Photo by Shak Feroz, ’16

Wow, May is upon us already and that means a lot of change at the College of Dentistry. Each of us will be experiencing change in some aspect or another, whether it is graduating or simply moving on to the next year. So too will the COD, as the commons and first floor are already seeing changes in the first phase of the renovation project. Much like these changes we will all experience in the next month, OU ASDA went through quite a few changes itself over the last year. We amped up our communication efforts by creating a website, establishing a relevant social media presence, and revamping this very newsletter. We added new events like ASDA Happy Hours and the 1st annual Pre Dental Day. We even beefed up our philanthropic efforts in the community through our relationship with The First Tee of Oklahoma City and doing screenings at Douglass Mid-High School. All of this work did not go unnoticed, we took home 5 Gold Crown Awards at ASDA’s Annual Session in Atlanta this past March. Overall it has been an incredibly productive year, one that could not have been possible without a hard-working executive committee and strong membership. I am excited to see what is in store for our ASDA chapter in the future, as I am confident the 2013-14 executive committee will accomplish bigger and better things. I am incredibly honored to have led such a strong ASDA chapter over the last year. Seth Brooks OU ASDA President 2012-12
