SMOMS 2021 Wall Calendar Photo Contest is underway!

It is incredible to believe, but we ARE starting to gather photos for our next Wall Calendar Photo Contest!  If you are a referring doctor of SMOMS, or you work for one of our referring offices, feel free to email a photo YOU have taken of a beautiful Maine scene to Suzanne Nason, [email protected]  She will be accepting photos now through October.  (No photos of people or pets, please, and horizontal photos work better than vertical).  This photo was submitted by Connie Gregoire of Endodontic Associates.  Keep them coming!

Special Group Inservice at SMOMS

We had a very special November in-service as a team.  First we all contributed something to our SMOMSGiving Meal, which was delish!  Then we welcomed Bobbi and Jennifer from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services.  They talked to us about their new Prescription Monitoring Program, which is working!

The 3rd Seminar in our 5-part Seminar Series!

We enjoyed welcoming Ira Dickerman (below center) from Dickerman Prosthetic Labs to the Portland campus of UNE-CDM on June 5th. He spoke to our guests about the steps taken from their point of view when making a final restoration. In the family-owned lab that they have had for over 50 years, they mill and print all their products in-house. They use the latest CAD/CAM technology and have invested in multiple scanners, which make it possible to fabricate 100% genuine abutments. They are devoted to excellence in patient care and have won many recognition awards. It was a pleasure spending time with them.

Winner Winner BBQ Dinner!

Many thanks to all of our referring offices, who answered the trivia question below, via an email contest.

And the winner of a Springtime BBQ Lunch is Windham Dental Associates, the office of Dr. Mike Bufo, Dr. Alex Kerbaugh, Dr. Jordan Hicks and Dr. Lauren Gallant!  Congrats and Enjoy!

 

Looking for the answer to the SMOMS Trivia Question??

The “April Fool’s Day Blizzard” of 1997 was a phenomenal snowstorm that hit the Northeast on March 31-April 1, 1997. The storm dropped rain, sleet, and snow from Maryland to Maine, leaving hundreds of thousands without power and as much as three feet of snow on the ground.

So I guess it COULD be worst?

SMOMS Super Bowl Party Basket Drawing is ON!!

It is that time of year again, when we ask our referring offices to take a guess as to which two teams will be tossing the coin for the Big Game!  The only catch is…the deadline is today, before this weekend’s games, when more teams will be eliminated!

Referring offices have received their entry forms, and each person in each office can take a guess by faxing their choice to our Biddeford office by the end of this work day.  All those guessing correctly will be entered into a drawing to win a basket-full of game-day treats!

Good luck to all!!

Suzanne
