Our Frontliner Dental Hygienists

There are few careers more “in your face” and less socially-distanced than those in the dental professions. This month we celebrate our Dental Hygienist students, grads, and faculty who have so resiliently provided dental care during these past many months.

National Coffee Day

There are so many “national days” but this is one I can get behind 100% – National Coffee Day!

Titles range from cookbooks like Top Coffee Recipes, to histories like Uncommon Grounds, to the sociology around coffee drinking in The Little Book of Fika: The Uplifting Daily Ritual of the Swedish Coffee Break.
