Dentistry + Oral Surgery Resident

One weekend, Bear (pictured here with our first-year Dentistry Resident, Crina) suffered maxillary fractures. Crina was on hand to surgically remove multiple bone and tooth fragments from Bear’s wounds before stitching them up. He is doing very well and is as gorgeous and friendly as ever!
