Diaries of An Orthodontic Resident 3



Some day in October, in a pre-covid era.

 Residents room.



“Hahahahaha…….”


“Reallyyyyyy??? No kidding, right? … hahahahaha”


Somebody walked in and started laughing with us Even before he was able to inquire the situation….. “kia hogaya bhaie….haha :S “

“Look what Dr sahiba has done!”

“ab kia kerdiya?” ek adad R7 senior tareen (not Jehangir Tareen) inquired.



A R6 resident responded: “Pehle aap batayen what do you have in your hand, ye konsi book hai? Graber ka 10th edition toh nahi agaya?”

“HAHAHAHAHAHAHA……..HAHAHA…..” and the walls shook with laughter again.



“ye mein CSS ki books dekh raha hun, aise he”; “ab batao kia hua”



R1 resident came forward laughing hysterically, “ye dekhein”. Showed a picture and some comments underneath. The picture had protruding incisors with extraction spaces showing.

“Toh...”

The senior asked trying to, simultaneously, hide the CSS course books.

“Let me tell you” The mentor of R1 resident intervened. This one was barely keeping its sanity through the third yr of residency.

ABC was trying to use the open-coil spring, forgot to make anchorage unit. Now her anchorage is burnt and incisors flared.”

“hmm…understandable” No one was amused at the response of a sulking senior-tareen.

“aur pata hai what she was doing all this time?”

“What”

“ye scale se extraction space naap naap k khush thi k utne ki utni hai :P …..peechay molar ka haal he nahi pata ….LOL”

“molar Multan se chal k Khanewal pohncha hua” a Faisalabadi resident commented….

“uss se b agay ki jaga koi”

"Aur incisors Isloo?"


Hahahaha …..and the laughter ensued.

“And just the other day she discovered that she’s been retracting on a rectangular Ni-Ti instead of SS all along”

“Khair ye to mein b kerleta hun clinic mn wires bachany ko”

“And also at one time…..”

“Have you forgotten your own time, habit breaker ko kon Nance samajhta hai?”

“Aray wo to you said TPA……”

“Wo yaad h jab…..”



The first year resident quietly slid out of the room much like slipping out of OPD before time every day in a stealthy manner
