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!!



Our team gathered recently to discuss our systems AND to preview the dishes of the season and all of our Thanksgiving fave’s with our work family!!

We have some winners!!!

Congratulations to Tina Brady, from Tory Hill Dental, the office of Dr. Joel Doyon in Bar Mills!!  She was one of 3 grand prize winners in our Super Bowl Party Basket Drawing.  She was one of many who guessed correctly that the Patriots and Eagles would be tossing the coin for the big game.  Making this a bit more challenging: the deadline to take a guess was a month ago, when there were still many teams in the running!  Our annual contest gathers about 400 entries total, and those guessing correctly are entered into a drawing…and well, with a name like “Tina Brady”, of course she won!!  Dr. Leigh Philbrick of Restorative and Aesthetic Dental in Portland, and Meghan Senor of Nano Dentistry in Westbrook also won large baskets full of game-day treats and decor.  Consolation prizes were also given to many other lucky winners.    Thanks again to everyone who played along, and Go PATS!!!!!
