Hello. This is a petition that the D2 class has put together to emphasize our need for weekend lab coverage. The second year of dental school is known to be most demanding in both didactic material and lab work, and our hand skills rely on the extent of our practice. It is over the weekend that we have the most flexibility to come into lab and improve our tactility. Marie and Ellie's presence is necessary for equipment supply, lab management, student support, and many other services. We utilize their help tremendously, and appreciate it very much. Without Marie and Ellie, it would be indefinitely more difficult to achieve the level of skill-work that we are aiming for. Thank you.
