I saw it.  I stopped.  I had to take a picture.

Have you ever wondered how a dental student actually practices?  Well, I think I found out recently.  I was in the Barnes and Noble Book Store on the Vestal Parkway last week.  I came around the corner in the cafe and saw a dental student and her teacher going through some class work.  The student was working on a big plastic mouth which was situated on a tall portable stand. 

It was perhaps the oddest thing I have ever seen in a book store.  And a little unsettling to find it in a cafe.  But, it did answer the question for me..."where do dental students practice!"
