One of the perks of going to Dental School in Las Vegas is the beautiful weather; although between studying, treatment planning, and lab work it may be difficult for us to actually enjoy it! Determined to take advantage of the 104 degree and sunshinning weather, ASDA hosted a Summer BBQ for all UNLV SDM dental students, staff, faculty, and thier families. Pictured to the left is Social Co-Chair Doug Chespak in charge of manning the grills.
Students and thier families gathered on the grass to enjoy the food and the perfect weather. The food wasn’t the only draw to BBQ though! Water balloons, water guns, facepainting, and fun competitions with prizes were also on the menu. Faces painted with Batman symbols and Butterflies were the themes seen for kids. DSI Nicholas Delisle ran with this theme while his classmate Richard Copithorne opted to give himself the moustache he always dreamed of.
People came and went. Relaxed in the shade. Chatted with faculty. Introduced family and kids to their classmates. But the fun continued with a three-legged race and an impressive competion of waterballoon toss which challenged everyone’s hand/eye coordination in a much different way. Both competitions were swept by DSIs (they are really competative!). Prizes included bragging rights as well as gift cards to Starbucks, Regal Cinema, Coldstone, and SmashBurger.
Overall it was a great way to spend an afternoon. We hope that everyone had as much fun as we did! Hope to see you all again at the next ASDA event! Check out our Flickr page here to see the rest of the photos.
Normally by 1:00pm on a Friday afternoon the clinic hallway is thinning out, but last week was just the opposite as the Lincoln Parker Ping Pong Hero tournament was getting underway.
The tournament, which is in its 4th year at UNLV, was presented as a collaboration of ASDA and Healthy Smiles. This year the tournament saw its first appearance in the A building. Pedo Residents, Maroons, Grays, and Reds all battled it out to see who would become this years winner.
After warm ups and several intense matches the trophy was finally awarded to DS1 Travis Neu. ASDA would like to congratulate Travis and thank Healthy Smiles for organizing such a fun event.
We have great community service opportunity as we will be heading over to Ronald McDonald house to serve a dinner for families with children in the hospital on May 13th. If you are interested, please ask any of the ASDA officers to get more information.
We hope that everyone has enjoyed their safe and fun spring break!
