Greetings, Pacific family and other visitors to the new dental university website. My name is Emerson Lake, the current Student Body President. I look forward to contributing to this new blog with hopes of providing a student's perspective to those interested in knowing more about life here at Pacific. Of course I welcome any comments or questions that you may have about anything I blog about, and I will try my best to provide prompt responses.
So with introductions out of the way, I am happy to report that it is great to be back into the full swing of things as a third (and final) year Pacific dental student. The reality is that in the third year our clinic time doubles that of the previous year! All of a sudden, there are a lot more patients to manage, appointments to schedule and lab work that seems to never end. In this last year, we are tying together all that we have learned from the various disciplines over the past two years and applying it as we meet the needs of our patients down in clinic.
If the first few weeks of this new academic year are any indication, then the next ten months will fly by so quickly we won't know what hit us!
