Yesterday and today, a speaker from 3M Unitek, Cathy Sundvall, presented to hygienists
Cathy Sundvall and I after her second lecture. What a trooper!
at the Pacific Dental Conference about Incognito Hidden Braces and the 3M ESPE preventive product line.
It was really informative! What I personally found most interesting (beyond learning about those preventive products) was how important communications are between dental offices and orthodontic offices. I guess it’s like any relationship! Communication is the key.
After her lecture, I spent the afternoon exploring the waterfront as that’s where the convention centre is. I had no idea, but it took me nearly an hour to walk to the aquarium. It’s further than it looks!! Here are some pics!! And yes, I still have my braces on (even though you can’t see them).
I like this Post-it Note mosaic-looking whale! It's actually a neat scupture. I kind of look like I'm inflated or something.
The Olympic Flame
The beautiful seaside landscape shot. It was a bit chilly, but not rainy.
Made it to the aquarium! It only took 45 minutes of walking...at least. I look less happy than I felt. It was a beauftiful aquarium. It was also the school spring break, so there were kids running around everywhere.
I just thought this guy looked cool.
...and...finally got a good shot! I must have taken 20+ pics.
You're allowed to touch the starfish, but what I didn't expect was that the water would be ice cold. I really just wanted to use my pinky finger and get out of there. Freezing!
I love how huge the trees are in Vancouver. They're stunning!
