“Simplifying Endodontics for the Everyday Practice” Workshop
Washington Academy of General Dentistry – “Simplifying Endodontics for the Everyday Practice” 2 Day Hands On Workshop Speaker: Rodrigo Sanches Cunha DDS MSc PhD FRCD(C) Course Description: Endodontics can often be difficult and frustrating. Incorporating technology into your daily practice will provide you with the tools and confidence required to take-on more challenging case. This evidence-based hands-on course will focus on essential technologies that are critical for the successful treatment of complex endodontic scenarios. Topics to be cover include: 1. The dental operating microscope (DOM), which combines both magnification and illumination leading to enhanced visibility and an increased probability of locating extra canals without removing excessive tooth structure. 2. Ultrasonic units and ultrasonic tips, which enable the clinician to remove tooth structure in a more conservative manner and access difficult-to-reach areas. 3. Electric motors with rotary or reciprocating files, which are indispensable for faster and safer negotiation of canals with severe curvature. 4. The role of irrigants and irrigation has changed within the past few years as it has evolved from an adjunct solution to an important tool for disinfection. 5. Different devices and techniques will be discussed for filling the root canal system “blocking” the portal of entrance to bacteria which is paramount to maintain the asepsis achieved during disinfection. 6. The benefit of incorporating three-dimensional imaging into your practice for enhanced visualization of difficult anatomy and making challenging diagnoses will also be discussed. Learning Objectives: After completing the course, the students will be able to: 1- Apply the “Microsonics” concept in order to enhance the chances of finding extra canals (i.e MB2 and Mesial-Middle Canal); 2- Compare both rotary and reciprocating instruments when shaping the canals; 3- Recognize the importance of the irrigation protocol with the aim of achieving disinfection; 4- Compare several devices and techniques for a perfect three-dimensional obturation. 5- Recognize the importance of a three-dimensional image in order to assess the dental anatomy prior to the endodontic treatment. Day 1 (Subject Code: 070) Lecture – 4 hours – am Hands-on – 4 hours - pm Day 2 (Subject Code: 070) Lecture – 4 hours – am Hands-on – 4 hours - pm Short Bio Dr. Cunha completed his Undergraduate Dental degree in 1994, which he obtained from the Pontificia Universidade Catolica de Campinas (PUCC) in Campinas, SP-Brazil.

Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture "Combating Islamophobia"
Saint Martin's University – On Friday, Sept. 22, a presentation about understanding the causes of Islamophobia and exploring ways to combat it will be the focus of this year’s first Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture at Saint Martin’s University. Aneelah Afzali, executive director of the Muslim Association of Puget Sound - MAPS-American Muslim Empowerment Network (MAPS-AMEN), will present the lecture and workshop. The presentation will be at 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 22 in Harned Hall Room 110 on Saint Martin’s Lacey campus. The lecture is free and the public is invited to attend. Afzali’s presentation, “Combating Islamophobia,” will explore several topics, including why hate crimes against Muslims in America are at an all-time high in the U.S.; why anti-Muslim proposals and vitriolic rhetoric have reached unprecedented levels; and how all the hate against Muslims arose. Afzali will also discuss how to take concrete action steps to combat Islamophobia and promote our shared American values of religious freedom and diversity. Afzali is the executive director of the American Muslim Empowerment Network (AMEN), a new initiative of the Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS) in response to the challenges of our times. Her work with faith and non-faith communities has helped build bridges of alliance, increase understanding of Islam and Muslims, fight bigotry and discrimination, and combat Islamophobia with facts over fiction, faith over fear and love over hate. To continue this work, she founded MAPS-AMEN in December 2016. She graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's degree in psychology (and minors in business and Spanish) from the University of Oregon Robert D. Clark Honors College, and was named a Chayes International Service Fellow at Harvard Law School. Fore more information, please see the press release on the Saint Martin's University website:

Sugar Skull Public Workshop September 22nd at 6:30pm
The Makery – These wood signs are unlike anything we've ever done before. Each sign is engraved with the design and you will not use a stencil during the workshop. The sign makes for an awesome door-hanger too. Sugar Skulls are trending on Pinterest for the top style trends for 2017. You won't want to miss this workshop! Here's a little history, Sugar art was brought to the New World by Italian missionaries in the 17th century. Mexico, abundant in sugar production and too poor to buy fancy imported European church decorations, learned quickly from the friars how to make sugar art for their religous festivals. Sugar skulls represented a departed soul. They were decorated in likeness with the name written on the forehead and was placed on the home of friends or gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments. ***Our example signs ONLY represent the design itself. Paint colors are YOUR choice*** Due to the custom nature of our projects we have a no refund policy on all classes. If you are unable to attend the party and give at least 24hours notice you will be able to reschedule for a later date. Also, because of the length of our workshops, anyone arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be allowed to join the workshop, so please arrive on time. Only registered guests are allowed in the studio during the class. All the supplies you need will be provided for you. Please note that we paint on WOOD and your sign will have random chips, cracks and knots. All of these items just add character! Class Location: The Makery: 11105 Steele St. S Unit 115 Tacoma, WA 98444 Please message me on FB or email me at if you have any questions. Thanks so much!

Gritty City Sirens' Varietease "A Night of Music & Burlesque"
Jazzbones – The Gritty City Sirens are presenting a night of burlesque and music. We have the special guests of live music performed by power couple duo Champagne Sunday and the diva duo Mirrorgloss. So come out, enjoy some tunes, watch some lovely ladies shimmy and shake, and dance it out with us. Champagne Sunday: Powerful, honest, edgy, and refreshingly original, Champagne Sunday attacks the stage with a show that is heartfelt, engaging, and performed with a desperate enthusiasm and chemistry seldom seen in today’s bands. Champagne Sunday transcends genre enough to create their own, coalescing the multi-genre tastes of today’s fickle audiences into a catalog that defies traditional definition. Mirrorgloss: Mirrorgloss were a bit shocked when they were named the Tacoma Weekly's Volcano best new band of 2014, but all things considered after dropping a rough and rare demo produced by electronic music tastemaker, Eliot Lipp and building a buzz in both the Tacoma and Seattle scenes playing anything from parties in dingy punk rock houses to opening for artists as diverse as Mikky Ekko, it's no wonder why they have developed such a steady following. And special guest performance by Strappy Bandeau!!!!

God's Solution for Addictive Behavior
Kent church of Christ – Addictive behavior may look and feel like a disease, but it begins as a choice. Many people—including Christians—have become prisoners to a cycle of chronic compulsion, broken promises, lies, guilt, shame, and often despair. These may turn to medication, secular therapy, or expensive rehabilitation to deal with their problem. Others simply suffer in silence, yet remain trapped in this cycle. God has been warning us about—and providing a successful solution for—addictive behavior all along. This solution is not an easy one, but it does provide a “way of escape” from any choice or lifestyle that keeps one in the grip of addiction. Please join us in our endeavor to shed God’s light on these things! Please note that this is NOT a rehabilitation for serious addictions; we are not discrediting the effectiveness of medical treatment for severe physical addictions. We are simply addressing the root of all addictive problems, which stems from an initial decision to engage in addictive type of behaviors.
