Susie Tuten, Dental Assistant -
Pediatrics Clinic
Susie was born in 1960 here in
Gainesville. Dentistry runs in Susie's
family; both her mom and her aunt were
dental assistants for over 30 years. She
worked for a general practice dentist in
Gainesville for 15 years before coming
to UFCD. She has been working in the
pediatrics clinic for 12 years and enjoys
her job. Susie is famous for being won-
derful with children. For Susie, seeing
the kids come back with smiles on their
faces, not afraid of a dentist, is the fun
part.
Q. What's the oddest job you ever had?
A. I worked in a screen printing t-shirt
company in Gainesville, I was working
out in the heat in a warehouse. The
worst part of the job was the rats and
mice, they were making nests in shirt
boxes, and I had to work in that
environment.
Q. Ideal Day away from Work?
A. Being on the water on a boat fishing
or scalloping, even on a cloudy day.
Your favorite guilty pleasure: Chicken
Wings
Favorite Book: Paula Deen Cook Book
Favorite TV show: Every show on the
Food Network
Favorite Movie: Divine Secrets of the
Ya-Ya Sisterhood
Unknown fact: I was in a women's
sports calendar in my senior year in high
school. It feels crazy because I never
pictured myself to be in a calendar.

SPOTLIGHT ON


Pediatric Dentistry



The department of pediatric dentistry, headed by
Dr. Marcio Guelmann, chair, focuses on teaching
and community service.
The department provides a two-year pre-doctoral
training program which helps students to develop skills
necessary to comprehensively care for the dental needs of
the healthy child and the child with special health care
needs. The department also has 10 residents in the post-
doctoral training program.
Both pre-doctoral students and residents gain experi-
ence in comprehensive preventive and restorative care,
hospital-based dental care in an operating room setting,
sedation and monitoring in the dental office setting,
treatment of patients with oral facial anomalies, diagnosis
and treatment of developing malocclusions, and emer-
gency dental care. In addition, residents participate in a
four-week rotation in
anesthesiology at Shands Hospital and a two-week rota-
tion in pediatric medicine at the Eastside Community
Health Center.


The department's service mission to the
community is accomplished by providing
care to the undeserved population, and,
in this way, improving access to care
and the oral health of children.



Consultation and dental care are provided to
patients referred from pediatric cardiology hematology/
oncology, nephrology and neurology clinics and from
the Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit. The department
also works together with the Craniofacial Center as part
of the center's multidisciplinary craniofacial team. In
collaboration with the department of orthodontics and
oral maxillofacial surgery, the pediatric department con-
tributes by providing oral health education, counseling
and restorative treatment for patients with craniofacial
anomalies.
The pediatric department is dedicated to service in
the community. "The department's service mission to the
community is accomplished by providing care to the
undeserved population," said Dr. Guelmann, "and, in

this way improving access to care and the oral health of
children." The department participates in the Head Start
program, which is a pre-kindergarten educational experi-
ence for low-income children. The department also treats
patients at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in
St. Augustine eight times each year.
In addition, the department provides services through
Shands Eastside Community Practice, whose dental clin-
ic provides oral health services for low-income families.
Several of the department's faculty and staff members
work at the clinic.
The Tacachale Dental Clinic also falls under the
department's wing. This clinic enables the department
to provide care to Tacachale residents, most of whom
have severe and profound disabilities; it also allows their
pre-doctoral students and residents to have valuable
clinical educational experience with patients who have


disabilities.

Missing Harriet



77 ? 'El


Harriet had excellent ideas
for the staff retreat. She was a
great leader. She always tried
to focus on something that
would be beneficial to all of
us. She will be greatly missed
here. Her grandchildren will be
happy to have her with them.
Kathy Cannon

Harriet has stopped in on
several occasions and reports
that her grandchildren-sitting
activities are time consum-
ing but very enjoyable. While
she misses all the people and
sends her best regards, she is
glad she is not working for that
slavemaster Dr. Clark anymore.
Dr. Buddy Clark

When I first met Harriet, I
wanted to be just like her. She
became my mentor for many
reasons but primarily because
she made work fun but knew
when to be serious and strict
and when it was OK to play.
Her devotion to the Special
Events Committee was phe-
nomenal and made Dentistry
"THE" College to be a part of.
My fondest story about her is
that after I dressed like a duck
for Halloween, she secretly left
small little decorative holiday
ducks in my office each and
every holiday just to make me
smile. She also gave me the
nickname "Ducky." She
e-mailed out a daily "thought
for the day" which made you
stop and think what is impor-
tant in life, and because of all
of these things she is greatly
missed.
