Katelyn visited our office a few times over the past couple weeks to learn more about dentistry and orthodontics in particular. Here is what she wrote about her time with us:
"I learned so much from watching the girls and how they work. Lindsey was so patient with me and let me ask any question. She taught me how to remember what color goes with what quadrant. The lower right is red and it is fire, the upper right is black that is because smoke comes after fire. Then you go to the lower left and that is white because after smoke comes ashes. Last but not least you have the upper left and that is green because after ashes comes new growth. She helped me remember how the reverse curve wire goes and how it works, frown down smile up.
I also learn how to properly clean a room after each patient, and how to clean the instruments. The instrument name took me a little longer to remember but after seeing what each instrument was used for it helped me to remember then. I loved getting to watch Lindsey take the pictures for the Invisalign. Out of all getting to watch the process of putting on the brackets for the first time was the best. Y'all walked everyone through the process and made sure they where comfortable through the whole thing that’s what I liked best. I didn’t get to see anyone finish their time in braces but I can only image how it must feel to help a child or an adult feel better about their smile.
Thank you so much for having me and teaching me all that y'all did. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to do my externship."
