IMPRESSIO S '76
. .vnu 3112" -
During the course of four years, we were all
fortunate enough to come into contact with
several special individuals to whom we owe
our dental school careers. It's funny though, how
we tend to take for granted the efforts and time
of some people without whom we could not have
As part of our morning ritual, a visit to the
Office of Student Affairs to check for morning
mail, disposable printouts, and "...just one
more favor..." almost always included a "Good
Morning, Ann" and a friendly reply of "Morning,"
which never failed to increase in enthusiasm as
the week wore on - especially as Friday
Who else but Ann has handled our daily problems,
complaints, good and bad moods with efficiency
and kind words, yet, in addition to being
Administrative Assistant to the Assistant Dean of
Student Affairs, Secretary to the Admissions,
Promotions, and Student-Faculty Laison
Committees, still had time over the past four
years to 'prepare our never ending supply of
of letters to fellow students, companies, and
organizations as well as make arrangements for
our future scholastic homes and student body
business? Most, if not all of us, can remember
the countless times she has covered for us when
we inadvertently or intentionally exceeded a
deadline, stretched school policy, or stepped on
the toes of the administrative bigwigs. Still, she
has never once bent our ears with the many
problems which must invariably accompany her
position. Who else but Ann could do all of this
and still maintain some degree of sanity in a
system which condones insanity?
For these reasons, the Class of 1976, with every
degree of gratitude, dedicates "Impressions '76"
to lVlrs. Ann Beech, for she has made the usual
unbearable situations bearable.

These valedictory thoughts were penciled originally under the somewhat unusual
circumstance of a. return flight to Los Angeles from the annual session of the Amer-
ican Dental Association in Chicago. It seemed an appropriate time, when my mind
was filled with fresh concepts of contemporary dentistry and its future, the profession's
continued concern about expanded functions for auxillaries and the place of dental
schools in their training, regional licensure testing, maldistribution of health profes-
sionals and much talk of partially employed dentists. I couldn't help but conjecture
how it would be for you in 1976. Hopefully, the national economy will continue it's
vigorous upswing, portending the end of the recession which has plagued so many of
your colleagues. Surely a challenging time to begin one's postgraduate professional
Ifl had but one hope, it would be that your time at UCLA has been a challenge, in
the best sense of the word, providing a stimulating environment leading to your ready
acceptance that you have indeed been rewarded with a first-class dental education
at a school which deserves and receives the plaudits of its peers. Perhaps it is trite to
say that an education program is only as good as its students and teachers. Certainly
you have shown your mettle and you have provided a desirable stimulus to an excel-
lent and dedicated faculty. 1 know you will come to appreciate your experiences
here even more as the years roll by. You are appreciated, too, both for your presence
here and the standards you have set for those who follow. Maintain your pride in the
School and remember that it is largely by your actions that we achieve our reputation
and are judged. Keep in touch with your classmates and above all give the School
the benefit of your thoughts and professional experience in the years ahead.
lVly very best wishes for every aspect of your future go with you. It has been my priv-
ilege to be associated with you.

strong sense of unity. We, as

Ray, the English prof of the class was
more fond of Marlow and Fitzgerald
than anything dental school had to
offer. Having received a B.A. in
English, Ray was heard to remark that
the metamorphosis from egghead to
jawbreaker had led him to "demon to- I
bacco." One might think than an English '
major would not adequately prepare a
student for dental education. Ray
proved us wrong. Known as the
"Anatomy Wiz," he not only excelled
in the basic sciences, but also fre-
quently acted as an interpreter for the L1 .
class, giving a thirty second synopsis
of one hour lectures.
During finals, Ray fancied himself as
more of a carpenter than a dental stu- A.-I
dent. Not one finals week passed that
did not find Ray building anything from
a bookcase, to a dinette set, to even
remodeling his kitchen.
Ray plans to open a practice in

states, ". . . aquire the finer things in
Known in his earlier days by his dedication to his portable tape machine, and later
on by a similar degree of concern for the welfare of his patients, Nick has con-
sistently given the impression of one who would rather not stand still. Thus
limiting his options, Nick will always be remembered by his classmates as the one
best able to light a bonfire under himself and carry it with him to any part of the
Being the most complete student in the class, Nick was necessarily the most
completely busy student as well. Not that this kept him from his hobbies. One
could often find him in a hotly contested game of chess at, say, 3:00 in the
Yet Nick's dedication to his studies was real, and is a sure indicator of his future
success in private practice. Nick hopes to spend a few years with the Air Force
first, and will most likely be the first enlistee in the U.S. Armed Forces history to
move faster than a F4-C.

Larry provided the class with initial clues to his actual age during the freshman
year. His constant call for a "break" indicated his weakening bladder sphincter.
Actually, Larry has managed to keep in shape during the past four years by
doing toe raises every saturday morning while playing basketball with the boys.
At the end of his sophomore year, rumor has it that Larry made Dr. Trabert an
offer he couldn't refuse. Now Ken is in an Endo program and Larry is in the
clinic. Once in clinic, however, Larry proved to be a smooth operator and free
thinker. His loud bellowing voice made his patients stand at attention. So a
directive was passed to tape his mouth during clinic hours. Actually Groups G
and H didn't know if they were in ROTC maneuvers or in Disneyland. H-yuk,

The Southern Belle of the Class of '76 has covered a lot of territory to reach
UCLA's School of Oral Academia. Joyce has pursued Elementary Education In

stranded up on the 3rd floor island with
nothing but his paddle. Though few in
words, Jack has a passion for things that
range from fast cars, jazzy music, and

talents though have been thoroughly
realized in his uncanny ability to attract

few simple thoughts. But what can you
say about a guy whose sole ambition is to
"get tubular"? By keeping the mental
activity to a minimum, he frees his
head to do truly important things, like
growing hair and remembering his name.
Of course, Jeff is married, but he has a
wife, and it is she that dresses him
funny. In addition to staying perpetually
hopped up on Lavoris, Jeff also suffers
from lethargy, hallucinations, inability
to cope, polyphagia, xerostomia, and

Quiet Dave released his vice-like grip on his Midwest Quiet Air long enough

Tony left sunny Pomona to attend Arizona Pharmacy School. He came to us
early in his career as a hospital pharmacist because as he puts it, "I want to be
my own boss." Tiring of the bureaucracy of the hospital, he decided that he
needed a change of pace and settled for the dental school bureaucracy. How-
ever, he was the only one of us who didn't have to worry about passing
Always one to enjoy bolstering the economy, Tony spent most of his weekends
"earning pennies" at a part time pharmacist job and then promptly putting them
into circulation by buying various little goodies. He sold his Renault and bought
a Volksg he then got rid of the Volks and bought a Mustang II, at the end of the
junior year, he sold the Mustang got a new Triumph TR 7 and an elephantine
Buick station wagon.
Tony's postgraduation plans will be to open a high volume dental practice in
Pomona if the new car dealers can supply the cars.
Vic, who has left a string of broken
hearts land other consequences! around
the country, has, in his four years with
us, established himself as the undisputed
king of the "Midnight Pickup." Armed
with a Jaguar XK-E and a cunningly in-
nocent smile, Cano has made his
famous "But this time it's TRUE love"
line work more times than Mark
Vic's good nature and love of life en-
abled him to handle his patients with
the skill of a true medical man. How-
ever, it was in such a nonchalant
manner that he was often mistaken for
Though temporarily out of commission
last year, swinging Vic is once again
in circulation in search of the "elusive
posterior." After graduation, Vic's
private practice will in all probability
make Big Daddy's in the Marina look
like a senior citizens home.
One of the mellowest characters around
our school is the Champ. As one of the
"regulars" in the back row, Rick
entertained us with stories of wine and
roses in his younger days. Especially
when he recounts his experience as a
high school bus driver.
A familiar sight around the clinic is
Champ's tan covered, resin dripping
Pipe. Alfh0U9h he claims to have a sub-
stantial collection of other pipes to
smoke, the stalactifical formation on the
bottom lead one to suspect otherwise.
Still, Rick's even disposition has been
his greatest asset. After all, who else
would light a match, take a puff and
f shrug when told his last partial was un-
acceptable the week before graduation?

As a product of Las Vegas, Steve once had early ambitions of becoming a topless
blackjack dealer or a one-armed bandit. The city life of LA and USC provided
bigger and better horizons for him, so he became obsessed with an uncontrollable
urge to express his creativity by bending a wire.
Dental school has developed Steve into one helluva skier and upon graduation,
he'll probably be totally prepared to open a photography studio as well. He has
excelled in all aspects of our curriculum except the financial end. He knew he
was weak in finance lor he would have never left the Vegas Strip,l so he began
research with the billing department to learn about a specific "Matter." In 'his
zealous pursuit to do a good job in this endeavor, Steve distinguished himself by
becoming the first dental student to have a girl from billing assigned to him full
time for his accounts and personal needs. We can all join President Ford in wishing
them a happy marriage.
Steve's next step in life will find him in Ortho school. We're hoping Unitek has
plenty of .030 wire in stock. Y

Boobert Childs blessed our school after graduating from UC Irvine in just three
short years. A self proclaimed genius, Bob immediately impressed us all by
simutaneously waxing his 2X teeth, doing the Daily Bruin Crossword, breezing
through Histology, and patting his head while rubbing his stomach.
In clinic, Bob will be remembered for pioneering the field of "Yoga-Dontics"
by training his patient to stand on her head while he condensed his class III gold
His other interests include his mastery of song and guitar, leading to complaints
from neighborhood pet owners, and an extensive Playboy collection that he is still
hiding from his wife.
In conclusion, B.C. seems to have a good grasp of where he's going and how to get
there. He's not telling anyone though: he wants to get there first.

"Magic Hands", as Creighton has by his
own testimony, been appropriately nick-
named, will probably be best re-

" great." We will be forever indebted to
him for his saintly altruism in sharing
with us inexhaustible, detailed and
lavishly generous accounts to everyone
of his vast and multitudinous accom-
plishments and triumphs during his
dental school career.

demonstrated to us that his clinical
skill is A LNIOST as outstanding as his
account of it. Best known for his "smash

While sitting in a far off rice paddy with lead flying overhead, John decided that
there must be something more to life. At that moment he decided that shooting
amalgam bullets would be a pleasant change.
Upon this revelation, he came back to the world, married his high school sweet-
heart, Carole, and enrolled at San Luis Obispo in predent. Three years later he
walked quietly into dental school with cowboy boots on. Some will say that he rode
to the top of his class.
But then something happened. It was December and white stuff had began to fall
on the mountain tops. John immediately went to the local store and traded his
cowboy boots for ski boots. During the next four years he managed to excel in
skiing while developing clinical skills that amazed his instructors.
Then there was another turn in his life. John found a place called the Oral Surgery
Clinic. A fire was set in him that melted the snows. He traded his ski boots for
green shoe covers and now plans to be the avante garde of Oral Surgery. Keep an

Masquerading as a high school dropout good humor man, Bernie came to UCLA
clad only with an omnipresent smile and nine pairs of handball gloves. Having al-
ready traded his dental equipment for handball various other paraphernalia, Bernie
seemed quite destined to remain at UCLA a little longer than most of his col-
leagues. Handball proved to be quite an asset for Bernie. Not only did it dress his
way through dental school but it gave him the necessary escape from lectures and
Bernie was the only one known to have spent six full appointments with the same
patient on simply oral hygiene instruction. It wasn't that the patient needed it, it
was that when the lectures were given, Bernie was off in Hawaii, Las Vegas, or
some other exotic place.
A master of forensic debate imore likely pure bullshiti and holder of the ear to
ear smile, Bernie always had a good word for everyone. Upon graduation, B.C.
plans to continue his breathing exercise, play handball in the back of his dental
office, do an occasional amalgam and talk.

The man called Cook. We first met
Andy during the fall of 1972, when we
mistook him for an insurance salesman.
Our suspicions were almost confirmed
during Fashion Cabaret's planning stages
when we discovered that Andy could sell
anything. Who else could've convinced
those entertainers that performing for
free would decrease their caries index,
or guaranteed Leonard Holguin that
donating 500 orchids would assure him
of early graduation.
Andy Cook lr.
If anyone has that God given trait of ag-
gressive achievement, it's Andy Cook.
He will probably amass his wealth by
being the director or administrator of a
dental equipment corporation with the
goal of driving S.S. White and Midwest
America out of business. In the words of
his long time buddy, Sebastian Glaze,
"Stick with Fat IVlan, he delivers."

Mary is perhaps best known for openly
challenging faculty during lectures
when the lecture material varied from
some previous information we had been
given. Faculty members have been known
to spontaneously urinate at the mere
sight of Mary raising her hand.
The only one in our class to complete
her Phony Dr. in Anatomy by studying
eyeballs, she was in constant demand for
pre-exam tutoring in our freshman
r ,.,:, ,
A devout women's liberationist, she also
achieved great heights when she won the p Y-
election to be senior class president. A '
position hotly contested by several
junior and sophomore candidates, Kathy ..
Nieminsky, and that little black dog you
always see at lunch time.

Mary recently endeared herself to the
entire Group B contingent when she
couragously attempted to bleach John
Cochran's central incisors. John now
sports two tweed teeth. ..
Mary will undoubtedly be a success when
she and her boyfriend Jess set up a joint
practice. We can see it now. "Ditto's
Dental Parlour and Chiropractic Center."

Jimmy, in his earlier years, had spent most of life in search of something in which
he could become king. After many failures in various intellectual endeavors, he
dispairingly concluded that he would never become the ruler of anything. He
resigned himself to utter futility until one day a letter arrives from UC LA informing
him of his acceptance to Dental School. This, needless to say, caught him by sur-
prise since he hadn't even applied.
Once here, Jimmy found that Dentistry was not for him. Were it not for intra-
mural Sports, he would have left us long ago. Golf is Jimmy's real love, but those
of us who know him, still can't understand how he can putt so well with such a
Jimmy's plans after graduation are to shoot subpar on a miniature golf course and

Mark hitchhiked hiswayto UCLA from his beloved state of New York by posing as
Groucho Marx, handing out cigars, and promising S500 to the drivers if they ran
over a duck en route.
The highlight of Mark's life, however, came while staying at Keams Canyon.
There, Mark's dream came alive, i.e., creating doctor-patient relationship by
challenging the Indian Staff to pool, ping-pong, baseball, and basketball. It wasn't
until he had returned to UCLA that he discovered he'd forgotten to insert their
Although infinitely loyal to his home state tshort of donating moneyi, returning to
the East Coast does not appear to be included in his plans. Apparently Mark has
come across an interesting "antibody" in the Biochemistry Research Department
which has been depleting his physical reserves. When questioned, Mark has coyly
refused to mention names. Whoever she is, we can thank her for keeping Mark's
"New Yawk" accent and "Mr. Nice Guy" attitude with us in California.
For the past four years, 'Arnold the
Greek' has generally been accepted as
being the originator of the DAT
vocabulary test. Coming to us from
Fresno, California, with the nickname
'Microcosomis Vernacularis,' was the
main reason dental school could not turn
Ron's abilities, however, didn't stop at
four letter words. He's also shown him-
self to be a proven asset on the intra-

ball teams. In return for his all night
'bring your best parts' parties, dental
school has also given him snow skiing,
golf partners, fright, Chow?l and Sue
A well rounded and well liked guy,
we're sure Ron will fend quite well
despite his two deficiencies: birthplace
and his cranial glare.

A whining "Quiet Air," a cloud of tooth V
dust, and a hearty "Time for a cup?"
Jim Fabozzi drills again. With his faith- '
ful DAU companion, Linda, this daring
and resourceful bearded wonder leads a
never ending battle for pulp horns and
Friday golf in old Group A.
Although normally a connoisseur of the
finer things in life such as line drawing
and expensive restaurants, lunch hour
would usually find him sitting at the
Bomb Shelter drinking his and every
one eIse's coffee.
In spite of the financial burdens of den-
tal school, he managed to come to
school driving a VW and leave driving
a new 280 Z lDue partly to his work
drawing blood at the hospital and partly
to his wife's job.l
All in all, Fabozzi will be best remem-
bered by all of us for his friendly
manner, distinctive laugh, and insati-
able need for caffeine.
Roger is one of the many in our class who have spent a period of time in other
fields prior to starting dental school. He has an easy-going personality that allows
him to easily deal with most people and situations.
However, his experience here has not been without some difficulties. Initially,
Roger selected a "low-profile" stance to survive the rigors of dental school. He
followed this plan closely at first, but after starting work in the clinic, he seemed
to forget his plan completely. Roger did not seem to realize that "low-profile" did
not include explaining the duties and responsibilities of a group director to a group
director, nor did he realize that campaigning to prevent the reduction of clinic
hours did not fall within this realm. One of the most difficult situations Roger
faced in coping with dental school was future shock in reverse: twentieth century
technology in a world where fourteenth century craftsmanship was revered.
Upon graduation, Roger will be taking over a practice in Huntington Beach with
his brother. With his personality and capabilities, he should find success with ease.
Richard Joseph Fernandez, alias the "Mad Dicker", left the International Gym-
nastics Team early in his career after discovering that he couIdn't pawn his
medals without paying import duty.
Shortly after entering dental school, Dickie re-entered the limelight by entertain-
ing most of the class with spectacular debacles at his now legendary "Hyperion
Nightclub." As time passed, however, Dangling Dick grew weary of having his den
of debouchery regularly visited by the new centurions, and retired to a quiet,
modest S175,000 house in Venice complete with chauffered. limosine at a reason-
able cost of "nothing down and no monthly payments", certainly a notable
achievement for someone who can't keep up the payments on his Opel.
If Dickie decides to work for a living after he graduates, we can be sure that
"Joseph" will find some way to make it as painless as me made it in school.
Fong, the "Hustler", came to us from
" The City" lSan Francisco for the

While anxiously awaiting his acceptance
to Colonel Sanders Academy of Fried
Chicken operators, Gary received his
invitation to attend dental school at
UCLA. Figuring that this was merely
some type of unusual prerequisite, Gary
became one of the class's most diligent
students. Gary's student file later be-
came stuffed with flowing recommenda-
tions from the sophomore lab janitors
who were often welcomed by Gary at
2 a.m. to a piece of chicken and a can
Finding the clinic game to be child's
play, Gary tried to make the game more
interesting by leaving open appoint-
ments, and having his four patients
cancel as many as frequently as possible.
His efforts did not go unappreciated. Dr.
Kaplan now congratulates him each
time he seats a crown and shakes his
hand each time he shows he can do a Gary France
procedure more than once.
After graduation, Gary plans to look for
a chicken franchise with a drive thru
practice in San Diego.
Ol' "Dirty has got to be one of our most productive comrades. By Christmas of '75
he had completed more crowns than Rimio has hairs on his chest and more endos
than Dr. Serene has "uhs." Nlark has, we are forced to admit, worked hard to
complete these units, but the general consensus is still that he turned in the same
eight units under four different instructors.
Mark has always had delusions of grandeur. In the coming years we will probably
see a billboard in Sacramento flashing " Dr. Gjerde has one hundred offices to
In all fairness, though, Nlark is one of those people who works hard enough to
make it look easy. Just remember - if you keep your chin up, someone -is sure to
recommend a sagittal split. The moral has something to do with the reliability
of the stars.
Sebastian Glaze, known to some as the "Panamanian PeriI" has for the past four
years, managed to elude all of our questions concerning his romantic interludes.
We're not sure, but it has been suggested that it has something to do with his
perpetual wearing of dark glasses and a mysterious lady in red.
Always one for innovative ideas, Sebastian has become indelibly etched in Dr.
MandeI's memory for his demonstrations of the bloodless alginate extraction
When not dubbing his voice for Un-Cola commercials, Sebastian can often been
seen chugging around with his sidekick, Andy, performing bodyguard duties by
swinging his purse to clear a path on his way to the top.

Between clinic work, tutoring, for-real reasearch, eating and sleeping, there's
little time for Alan's first love, the clarinet. Yet, the influence of his musical

Alan has promised to remember what bad lectures are like so he can give good

the lecture dependent as much on the style of delivery as on the content. We'lI
just have to trust him on his own set of "behavioral objectives".

who to call when we need an A-sharp pathologist.

basketball and playing a mean guitar. Once in a while he practices some

After leaving dental school and the co-op, Ron plans to do an internship in
Southern California. He'll probably practice in the Southland so he'll be close to
his worm farm. iThought we were kidding, huh'?l
One sure thing can be said of Ron-O: he always knows where he's going . . . he
just follows his head, which is seen cruising slightly ahead of his body.

Our own in-house Harry to the Long Ranger's Tonto, Bob managed to turn down an
offer from the Dallas Cowboys to take up dentistry here at UCLA.
Sporting an ear-to-ear grin and the largest clinical crowns in the world, Bob can
usually be found telling dirty stories to the DAU instructors in Group C, and
quizzing hygienists on their knowledge of Cherokee fertility symbols.
Bob's real pride and joys are his wife Betty and his little girl Becky, both of
whom have been known to deny any relationship whenever he tells one of his
famous stories in mixed company.
B.H.'s free and easy demeanor will lead him to a private practice in Oklahoma or

Some of us may wonder just who Bill Johnson is, and with good reason. While most
of spent our first year suffering through lectures and cramming to the point of tears
in the library, Bill was lounging at home in Pasadena and would pry himself away
from his easy chair only long enough to drive in and take exams.
Sophomore year was rougher on B.J. since he had to drive in TWICE a week to
get his preps graded.
Bill's ability to talk and good sale is evicenced by the fact that he was able to
coerce his girlfriend into marrying him and also giving his patients the impression
that the UCLA Dental Clinic is located in Pasadena.
B.J. will probably scout up a good pedo program or residency next year with the
stipulation that it be located within walking distance of downtown Pasadena.

three Volkswagons and a Winnebago as he slid into the parking lot and then got a

When he isn't in the clinic, or in the lab casting his 184th crown, Bruce is often
out taking afternoon drives with his girlfriend, Judy, who has, for the past four
years, managed to endure his chain smoking, their "economy" dates, and his
lengthy discussions about Shelby GT 350's. Such is true love.
Post graduation plans for the Zoomer will probably include a high-rate associate-
ship somewhere in Orange County and a long overdue wedding.
Karl Kawakami, or Nlr. Postman of C.A.S.O., is known in the clinic as being a
hard worker and conscientious operator. Outside of the clinic, though,we remember

while drinking his Chivas during JA WS.
Despite his many achievements, Karl is still to be congratulated for: tal being the
only one who had to do an immediate denture for a hemophiliac, tbl scaling all
of his patients with only a Barnhardt 1-2, tcl threatening Pedo patients with treat-
ment from Dr. Gershen, and tdl for being the only one who could sleep through
Oral Surgery and tie for top score on the final. lVluch of his success in the clinic,
though, must go to his girlfriend, Jean, who put him through Junior and Senior
year with her six Class II's.
Karl's future plans include a general practice residency program, followed by an
L.A. associateship and a starring role in "Marcus Gannon, D.D.S."

Long, lean Jack, one of the select group of "good guys" from L.A. decided to
attend UCLA rather than leave "The Basin", not from any undying loyalty, but
primarily because he had developed an addiction to smog.
Jack is known by the Class of '76 in many respects, but particularly for his scholastic
achievements. This is exemplified by Jack's being chosen as the first dental stu-
dent to be awarded the "Bat Rack" Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded an-
nually to the dental student showing the most promise in conscious sedation. During
the past four years of his dental education, Jack has repeatedly proven his inherent
talent in this area, especially during lectures.
During clinic, Jack's patients undoubtedly found him easy-going and likable--
especially when he was conscious.
Jack plans to carry out his many fine attributes into a general practice somewhere
in the L.A. area.

Having decided to pursue a career in dentistry, George came to UCLA after decid-
ing that psychology would provide a better background for dentistry.
As an avid sportsman at UCLA, George invented a new sport called "The First Date

of one player each, usually a male and a female. The rules of the game are some-

What would you think of a student who was so modest that she never once men-
tioned her numerous accomplishments? Do such people exist? If there is a list of
such people, then Laverne is surely at the top.
How many of us would forget to mention that our pre-dental school years included
a class presidency, cheerleading, editing school publications, graduating Valedic-
torian, a California journalism award, and several art and sculpture awards? Who
else would also forget to mention that they started dental school only after raising
four stepchildren, one foster child, and five stepgrandchildren? Who else but
Laverne has got a lot to be proud of, especially her husband, Vic, who has never
once failed to commute from San Diego to visit her every weekend for four years.
Together, they have even found time to go backpacking, maintain two households
and teach their children culinary excellence.
With all this going for her, Laverne will have no problems in finding time to start

During the "pre-awakened" years of Uncle Sam, Captain Pete Minjarez II managed
to elude the ride paddies of Nam by taking an extended R 84 R in Germany.
Tiring of the easy life, Pete decided that he would avoid further conflicts by hiding
out in dental school until the "disturbance" settled. Once here, though, M II quick-
ly barked out orders to "stand clear" and proceeded to establish his 2.68 amalgams
per minute record. Pete has promised to up this to an even 3.0 by graduation.
Every so often, M II longs once again for the khacky green, and slips away to do
his thing for Uncle Sam's reserves. We can always tell if Pete has come back from
one of these junkets, when he orders Dr. Federick to take three laps around the
clinic before checking his state board set-up.
If the Feds ever forget about him, Pete will someday have his eyes on a plush pri-

ing officer when they ship us all off to the Middle East.

Rich came to UCLA from El Paso,
Texas, where he has lived all of his life
and where he attended the University of
Texas. Richvdivided his time at UTEP
playing intramural sports, working con-
struction every chance he could get to
keep up his favorite pastime of horse
racing, meeting his wife, Christine, and " L
still managing a B.S. degree in biology.
Although by first impression Rich ap-
peared to be one of the quietest students '
in the class, he was one of the busiest '
ones. Rich could be seen making friends
with everyone, including the other stu-
dents' patients and he never seemed to

Fresh from the high living El Centro atmosphere, Vic managed to include in his
undergraduate studies: zoology, biology, ornithology and anything else with pretty
legs that moved.
During those carefree years, Vic held down a total of three jobs, his favorite one
being lifeguard duty on the beaches. All was happiness and nooky until a beautiful
girl named Barbara kicked sand in his face. Vic followed up with the logical route
when accosted by someone tougher, he married her. Both he and Barb are avid
travelers and spend so much of their free time on "weekenders" to San Diego that
Jimmy the Greek was laying odds on Todd Victor "dropping out of the chute"
somewhere between Oceanside and La Jolla.
Around the clinic, Vic is easily identified as the dentist with the sweatiest hands
but the best all around disposition. Look for Vic next year at the VA or the Public
Health Service if you're looking for a ride to S.D.
Brian was bus his first ear in dental school He was our class president and served
Y Y -
on various school committees, thus preparing for his future political adventures.
Brian likes to plan ahead, so that year he also had his checks printed with DDS.
After putting in more time during the nexttwo years as a regional ASDA director
and GSA Veep, Brian discovered the sacred edict lrequirementsi and quietly re-
tired to the Silent Minority of the front row for his Senior year.
Brian will be remembered as one of the few to enjoy the sophomore Ortho class
since he was planning to go into Ortho, only to decide that his real calling was
elsewhere. Besides, Oral Surgeons make more money.
Brian may not have had much to say to his fellow classmates but he seemed to
have found at least one member of the staff here more interesting. Marilyn and
Brian were married the summer before Senior year. Both she and her sense of hu- . 1
mor will help him through the difficult extractions in his future.

career in engineering. After spending a

As one of the mellowest members of our class, Steve's dental school attitude is re-
flected in his philosophy that he really doesn't cut his own preps - the Lord does.
Illustrating Steve's greatest asset, his phenomenal memory, is the fact that he was
the only one to attend classes for four years and still not fill up a whole notebook.
The high point of Steve's career, however, was his presentation of a paper to the
Dental Research Convention in Atlanta, but even Steve has forgotten the title.
Saintly Steve, although a dedicated believer, still credits most of his success to his
wife, Missy, who will celebrate his graduation with a new baby.
Although Steve's father is a very successful dentist in the Bay area, Dr. Nelson Jr.
will try for a post grad perio program, after which he plans to spread the word
somewhere in Montana or Colorado. With the Lord's benevolence, Steve will be
assured of contentment.

UOP basketball star to UCLA.
Although a native of Wankesha, Wis-
consin, good natured Gary took dental
school in stride and shed his small town
image by trying to live a life of deca-
dence at the beach. Although basically
bashful, Gary has more than once been
embarrassed at the Rec Center by
Swarms of girls clutching at his ankles
screaming "Take me, take me!!"
Few of us believed that Gary's fingers
could fit into anyone's mouth, but to
him, it's just another basketball hoop.
He may have scared a few pedo pa-
tients, but he's never had any com-
plaints - an obious advantage of being
6' 5", 215 lbs.
Gary's future looks bright as he hopes to
associate somewhere in San Diego, San
Francisco or Sacramento, and then re-

Apparently the clinic has been good to Rivera since even his speech has slowed to
the point where some people can now understand what he's saying. We're not sure
why, but it has been suggested that he uses up most of his excess energy by having
to 'push his tired old blue Mustang over the Sepulveda hill in order to get to school.
He'd rather take the VW, but he'd have to push it just to get it out of the garage.
Postgraduation plans for Roger are as yet undetermined. Wherever he goes we're

As a child growing up in a small town
outside of Boston, William Rodriquenz
was smaller than most, even his grade
school sweetheart, Susan lnow Mrs.
Rodriquenzl used to pick on him. One
day after he had told her that 9 years
old is still too young to get married,
she bashed him on the head with a rock.
He has since been known to his friends
as Rocky. That particular rock caused
more damage than anyone expected as

Of course, Rocky has other interests,
but they all seem to center around

Although Lane rarely set foot in lecture or even the clinic for that matter, dental
school did manage to develop a number of his talents. Among these talents were
his sleight of hand lobserved by many and trusted by fewl and a profound respect
for his comrades: "You guys are plain inferior."
Lane had better things to do than hang around school. Making money seemed more
pleasant. The "Dynamic Uno minus One" spent most of his time either working at
Hughes as a systems analyst, working for Dr. Marcus in lieu of taking Public Health
requirements, or performing magic shows for faculty members for 520. an hour.

Jon first had inklings that he was destined to enter the surgical profession when his '
father placed a scalpel near his crib. He cut himself, naturally, but even today, he
still recounts as how it was a neat, clean incision.
Despite his obvious talent, Jon opted to take up UCD cow college pre-med after an
illustrious career as a high school free-thrower. Overcoming this insanity, he even-
tually drifted to UCLA.
Jon's first two years were reasonably successful, but was inclined to ponder his
future when Operative and Fixed hinted that his best laboratory performances were
in gross anatomy. Years from now, Jon will still be found working late into the
night filling out oral surgery applications, his favorite pastime when bored.
When Jon tires of working with his hands, he will probably switch to his feet, which
are well versed in the art of Ken-do, demonstrating how far he will go to keep from
using his head.
Dr. Schinnerer has the unique privilege

up: lll he did not win the Dr. George Fischbeck look-alike contest, and C23 Steve

lwhich Steve generally isl, you can always count on the fact that when there is

After earning a B.A. in Nlicro, Gail spent most of her time trying to convince the
boys at Cornell that her desire to go into dentistry did not mean dental assisting.
After several verbal lashings, most of them tended to agree.
Gail's motivation in choosing UCLA was to get as far away from those New York
"chauvinists" as possible. Ironically, with hundreds of California men available,
only another transplanted New Yawker named Howard could convince her that the
best place for homework was at home. After three years, they still do their home-

and Times to just Remember
Enter one hundred and six total strangers
bewildered, yet eager, to us
twelve hundred dollars doesn 't seem meager
especially on our very first day.
Classes, books, tests and such,
this wasn't new. Afternoons in the labs
we were even used to but,
the hours of waxing were with us to stay.
Thru Neuro and BioStat we did complain.
To make it in Dentistry we did still aim.
United we tackle a project quite large
In the Spring we present Fashion Cabaret.
The impressions we turned into casts
properly trimmed and mounted.
Then finals, and at last hurrah
our first year ended just after May.
Blue cards, burs, brushed and boxes
Plus other strange instruments
to be sorted and stored.
This marks the start of our Sophomore year.
PasslFail is threatened
by eights, twos, sixes, and fours.
Threatened also is long hair
even the type of shoes we can wear.
Polished amalgams, shiney and bright
Dentures with wax-ups so clean and neat
Glas IIs' with walls sharp and discrete
and margins on fixed preps perfectly clear.
Thru practicals, bent wires and pedo projects complete.
Those first dentures, how we hoped they would fit.
We're now paged as Dr. and that's worth a mint.
Of course, oral cancer is what we all secretly fear.
rf. ..Y., e -,
A Junior means partials, patients and treatment plans.
It's clinic and classes and charts complete.
Reminders to keep yourself and your cubicles neat.
Then white cards with number their meaning obsure.
Frustration is present, everyday, every dam
Every consult, impression and patient consent.
Finding instructors for signatures who are not there.
Is it all really worth it? We're sometimes not sure.
Reduced clinic time seemed only a threat
As Seniors we find out how bad it can get.
Green cards and new requirements to be met.
Have no fear they tell us, you'll graduate yet!
They 've created a term Super Senior indeed.
More clinic time is really the need.
When the time of requirement completion doesn't seem near,
cases of Senior Paranoia are visably clear.
Chief complaints we have taken, maybe a score.
To sell the patient the treatment, we've learned this and more.
Mock boards where we're put to the test
To stay cool and deliver our best.
Forget about partials, foils, bridges, and crowns.
Think about jobs, equipment, insurance, and loans.
Think about graduate work, family and homes.
We've made it this far and we'lI finish the rest.
Good luck to each member of the 1976 Class.
May each receive State Board Score PASS
After four years now with a D.D.S.,
We're each left to our own individual quest.

CATHY DETHERAGE, R.D.H
Karen had it made considering she was the
only available hygienist among 2,000 Asian
dental students. Being smart and beautiful
had nothing to do with it. When she heard the
job market was going downhill, she grabbed
on to Operative Instructor, S.N., and they
lived happily ever after.
One of three Siamese triplets, so named for
her association with Taylor and Tsujioka,
Laurie was the envy of the entire class when
she won the drawing for D. Guensler's gree

Doc wasn't part of the package?

Worry? Cath tied the knot last summer and
will move to Death Valley upon graduation.
Her only patients will probably be desert rats!
Jane, the human psycho-magnet, so named
for her ability to attract all the looney
patients, was so dedicated that she could be
seen buzzing home in her porsche 2 hours be-
fore clinic even started. She will best be re-
membered for her suggestion to sell dope as a
a class fund raising project.
IVlary plans to marry and be merry, one week

Mary and attendants rehearse for the big day.
Jane snorts her latest

JUDITH DUNN, R.D.H.
Because of her high standards, Judy's search
for a sugar-daddy to replace her real daddy,
who financed her entire career as a student
hygienist, is probably still active at the time
of this publication. Her second most avid in-
terest is being home between 12:30 and 1:00
for her favorite soap opera.
Peggy "the Heartbreak Kid" held the record
for breaking the most hearts at UCLA dental
clinic, but what none of the dental students
discovered, was the well guarded secret that
Peggy had a steady boyfriend in Newport
Beach. Sorry Peg, the secret is out!

Our token male, sank to the depth of de-
pression every time a patient showed, but
when they did, Jake's oral hygiene instruc-
tion was so complete and dynamic that no
hygienist on the 2nd or 3rd floors needed to
give her own OHI.

Bea had the distinction of being the only one
that could bitch about a nice day. But serious-
ly Bea, we all loved it when you inadvert-
antly gave the class mid hour breaks with your
late arrivals! She could usually be found guid-
ing us to Alice's Restaurant to lose our trou-
bles in a bowl of moccachiro.
The 'Nightowl' traded the bonds of matrimony
for freedom and financed her way through hy
giene by cocktailing at the Pussycat Lounge
and a local bowling alley. In addition to these
endeavors, she will hopefully become a hy-

THE CLASS OF 1978
At the beginning of the school year the sophomore class quickly realized
the beauty, warmness and colorfulness of the 4th floor lab. Accordingly,
everyone rapidly moved in and decided to stay for at least the full year.
Having completely saturated our desires for free time and the carefree life
during the summer months, no one though twice about giving up summer for
our new 4th floor home.

When we seek to restore,
what now is no more,
And chamfer those preps
And pack and impress
what's left of this mess
And cast what we think
ought to go,
We find when we grind
that we've still got some time
To use some gold foil
in that hole.
