I am second year student at Howard University College of Dentistry.  I am presently doing courses in Fixed Prosthodontics, Removable and Partial Dentures, Periondontics and doing clinic rotations.  I have also just completed the first half of my Pedo/Ortho lecture requirements and will continue on with oral surgery and endodontics this spring.  This summer I look forward to becoming a junior and treating patients in the clinics!
