The College’s American Dental Education Association (ADEA) chapter hosted a Peer Mentoring Group (PMG) DAOB Clinical Skills Event for the D-2 class in which D-3 and D-4 mentors guided D-2s with Class IV composite restorations and crown preps.
The event was set up by Shawn Jung, Peer Mentoring Group (PMG) DAOB Clinical Skills Director, and run by Hany Reyad, UIC ADEA Chapter President, and Karen Homsi, UIC ADEA Chapter President-elect. Dolly Ahmad, Dan Pagel, and Karen Homsi took photographs of the event.
The event was a great success with over 35 students participating. “We hope to continue to cultivate a collaborative environment among students at UIC COD by hosting more events like these,” Homsi said. “Also, we’d like to send out a big thank you from all the participants to Millie Mendez and Dr. Darryl Pendleton for providing the pizza dinner that sustained us through the evening!”
