2001 Oilonloloc, 1You have h rains in your head. You haw feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own and you know what you know, You arc the guy who'll decide where togo. Oh! The places you’ll go! 99 -Dr. Seuss 2! Temple Srhool of l)onfi$fr Sa n four years later and Once upon a time, in the year 2000, 119 students from all parts of the world came to Philadelphia to achieve one common goal. This is a story filled with many twists and turns. A story where quiet, dry typodonts turned into rambunctious patients with Hailing tongues and copious saliva. where ideal MOD's became direct pulp caps and we wondered if we would receive a CLT (certified laboratory technician) along with our DMD’s. It is the journey we took that made these four years so memorable. This journey formed lifelong friendships that have proven to be more valuable than expected. Friends were there to make you laugh when it felt like the walls were caving in around you. Friends would trade patients and go out of their way to make sure you too made it to the finish line. The ending to this story is one of triumph, for the ending is graduation and the outcome is a DMD. The greatest achievement, however, was the journey itself. That is where overcoming hardships resulted in strength, knowledge and success. We leave Temple with gratitude for the many experiences, good and bad, that will help us to be the best practitioners we can. Although we say good-bye to Temple's halls and walls, it is truly just the beginning. seniors.6 underclasses.146 faculty.158 clubs.170 ads.182 the doctor is finally in 2001 Odonloloo 3Letter from Dean Martin Tansy Office of the Dean 3223 N. Broad Street (600-00) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19140 (215) 707-2799 Fax: (215) 707-3192 May 20, 2004 To the Class of 2004: There is a tendency to tell each class that they are "the best class" 1 have seen during my time as dean, and that is not untrue; each class is "best" because each class is different. Each class develops its own personality, as yours has done. The thing I value particularly about this class, as well as those who preceded it and those who will follow is your ability to serve as Ambassadors of Temple University. While you are students you meet and talk with applicants to the school, freely giving your candid observations. As students you also travel near and far as part of our outreach activities, still creating the best possible impression of the Temple product. And, as graduates, you will find you are welcomed into graduate programs, the military, or practices, as you exemplify the clinically competent professional that is the proof of a Temple education. I have read the yearbook messages of my predecessors and find there is also a tendency to tell our graduates to "go forth" and "do great things.” I don’t need to resort to cliches with the Class of 2004; you are the best ambassadors Temple could wish for and I have no doubt you will accomplish much. I wish you all the very best of luck. Sincerely, 4 |I| Irmplr Srhool of Drntijitr edition of the 2004 odontolog to... The class of 2004 would like to dedicate the Odontolog to the velvet harpoon. Dr. Lippincott. Although, we have to be honest and admit we never saw the “harpoon" in him, only the caring generous side. It is rare that one professor is capable of touching the lives, inspiring, and being a role model of so many students. From the very first lecture to the clinic. Dr. Lippincott has executed to his students a level of respect, integrity, and impartialness that cannot go unrecognized. His commitment to teaching is obvious during lunch or at night when his row is still active with students. Dr. Lippincott never denies his students the time or attention they need. We thank you Dr. Lippincott. for the passion and charm you bring to the profession and we are lucky to have learned from the best. We truly hope you know how much you are appreciated and admired. Through our eyes w;e look to you w'ith hope that one day we can become inspirations for others as you have been for us. Dr. Lippincott 2001 Odnnlitlnt 5Looking back on our four years sve realize we were the first class to...have 8 finals in 5 days, have Pharmacology moved to sophomore year, caries risk assessments, dental public health, and many more. WE were also honored to be intimately integrated in one another's lives. WE saw relationships form, babies born, and weddings celebrated. Through it all we were there to support one another and believed that if we started this together we would end it together. It was what happened in between that was so amazing. The following 119 pages show the many faces that make up the class of 2004. However, the friendships, stories and secrets are ours to keep forever. 6 iiS temple Sehool ofYEARBOOK STAFF Nelly Ekanem Joy Graves Yvette Gutierrez Kimberly Jefferson Lajuan McWilliams Mountain Azy Nasiry Erin Tate April Walker Jen Udis 200 l0dontolot 7Mona Alkhayat Albandar, D.M.D. Osb Norway Bergen University, Norway ASDA.

California University of Toronto Four years of dental school seemed to be endless when I was struggling with tny classmates in the pre-clinic trying to meet the project deadlines and studying lor eight final exams in one week at the same time. Now everything seemed to happen so last when I actually look back once more. The denial school experience taught me not only how to become a dentist but also how to interact with other people in the society at large. I deeply appreciate the help from the faculty members and staff You provided me a good learning environment and made me more competent and skillful. I also appreciated the criticisms when I was not at my best. This made me want to strive to better myself. I appreciated the hardship I went through during my difficult times. This made me cherish and look forward to the better days in the present and future. I would like to thank my friends who gave me trust, support and care when I started to doubt myself Without you. I wouldn't have made it. 1 appreciated the loving care from my family who gave me love, support, and took pnde in whatever I was doing. I also would like to take this moment to thank all the professors and instructors for teaching me the art and science of dentistry. Your knowledge gave me a solid foundation for pursuing my dream as a good dentist. I would like to especially say thank you to Drs. Lippincott. Monansky. and Winkler. I appreciated the time, energy and effort you devoted to your students. You made the practice of removable prosthodontics seem more fun and interesting than it should be Your work ethic and professionalism set a good example for me as a health care professional I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my late high school biology teacher, Mrs. Robson, a great mother, wife and teacher who died of breast cancer four years ago. She had faith in me when I was confused and lost. If it w eren't for her encouragement and guidance. I wouldn't have made it this fax today. Her positive attitude towards life alw ays enlightened me to love life the way it is. fflWWlliri! ww 126 |Q| Icinple Sehool ofDentigfrv2001 0 loutolo£ 127Fraplr Srhool of Dfiiltfrv2001 Otloiitnl«t£ 129SENIORS 130 0 Tcinplr School ofPniti t! 2001 0 lniit«ilo£ 131132 lomplo Srh«v l of l nli lrv££l ?‘ ri"‘»ro i oor.134 III Irniplr Srhool of2001 Oilontnlo 135136 IfH Irmplr School of Denti tr '2001 Otlnulolog, 137138 |I| Irmple School of IVnfi$fr 2001 (Hlontolo£ 139MARRIAGES William Sandra Forcro 12 23 2000 Sadia Bakhtawar Rahel Zubairi 06 23 2001 Mr. Mrs Joseph Eckman 07 21 2001 Mr. Mrs. Jaime Rivera 08 04 2001 BIRTMS Sadie Loth on 04 01 2001 Luke Carlston on 10 12 2001 Benjamin Bell on 12 08 2001 Halie Schoemaker on 12 12 2001 140 Irmplr Srh«M l ofWendy Magda Hugh Heisler 02 16 2002 Peter Sr Meghan Brown 07 27 2002 Abby Gabe Neville 08 10 2002 Max Sr Deborah Almodovar 10 10 2002 T.

We have sympathy for the headaches of freshman year. There's the fear of failing Biochemistry and Histology, along with the many restorative deadlines and practicals. As a sophomore the stress piles on. you take nine exams in one week and try to determine which class you can study less for... Pharmacology or Oral Pathology? When junior year kicks off. the anxiety of awaiting national board scores looms overhead and you realize that being a clinical student gives new meaning to the word "tired.” Through it all we found comfort in knowing that if the classes before us did it. we could do it too. 146 iJl Irmplr SrhiM l of Drillist FAILURE IS ALLOWED.

Life is queer, with its twists and turns. As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about When he might have won if he’d stuck it out; Stick to your task, though the pace seems slow— You may succeed with one more blow. Success is failure turned inside out— The silver tint of the clouds of doubt— And you never can tell how close you are. It may be near when if seems afar; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit— It’s when things seem worst that YOU MUSTN’T QUIT.

Love, Mom and Dad The Measuring Stick (By Dan's grandmother, Clara Thomas Morgan) It isn't the size of the man that counts, or the cost of the house where he lives. It isn’t the weave of the clothes he wears or the price of the Rift he gives. It isn't his color, religion or creed or the breadth of his social span. It isn't the title by which he is known that makes him a worths man. It's the kind of a man that he is that counts, and the kind of life that he lives. It’s the smile that he wears, and the sacrifice that he makes by the gift he gives. It's the sympathy, kindness, the courage and truth that you see when you look in his face; The respect that he has for his fellow men. despite their religion or race. It’s the kind of a name that he makes for himself and the worth to which he amounts. No, it isn't the size of the man at all. but the kind that he is that counts.HORRA y !
