First-Anniversary-of-AlmazDentistryGood morning! I can’t believe its been a year already!

In just one year, we have provided information through 27 posts, a GIGANTIC resource list, guides, and FAQs.

Over the past year has provided information for over a thousand unique individuals. WOW! It amazes me to see how the website has grown since it started last Feburary. I am excited to continue working to improve the experience and I expect the popularity to grow as we continue to post unique content only found here.

On top of our website, the service Ask Elias has been a hit! We have provided counselling services to over 2 dozen individuals over the past year, many of which continue to keep in touch! Keep sending your questions, concerns or comments!

On a side note, a few days back, someone wrote me how useful they found the FAQs about pre-med experience students and applying to dental school as a pre-med. I am happy to see that the website and all of its content has  benefit to someone out there. As I mentioned before, it is utmost important for me to make sure people who are going to dental school KNOW they want to be a dentist.

Have a great day everyone! Enjoy your weekend do something fun with your manos!

A great activity to do for those with superb manual dexterity skills.

Hey everybody!

Just a heads up that there is maintenance running at the moment. Please bear with me while things return back to normal! Some functions of the website might be disabled until the maintenance is fully complete. Thank you!

  1. You may have noticed a few upgrades to the website. A lot of back-end work has been done over the past few months. It has been completely redone to be more optimized for future expansion.
  2. Some of the new features include a lovely new banner with changing transition effects for the main website, a mobile website for phones and tablets, and the groundwork for an upcoming series called: Secrets to Success – High School Edition.
  3. Lots of new content coming out of the pipelines! Including an FAQ section!

Have a great thanksgiving!


UPDATE: Maintenance is over! All website functionality back to normal!

The new school year is about to begin! I have spent this second half of the summer working full-time at a dental office and getting everything ready for our organization, Pre-Dental Society at UC Irvine. I did a ton of work in Adobe Illustrator designing logos, fliers, banners, t-shirts, and emblems. It was really important to make all these because of our recent commitment to rebranding the organization from ground zero.

Here are digital previews of what I have designed in the past few weeks:







New PDS Letterhead Logo



I spent a ton of time in Illustrator and learned its inner workings. I have gotten to the point where I can effortlessly design something in a very painless way. I ended up going back to some of my old art work and re-did them. I redid the AlmazDentistry logo which now feels much more professional with a crisper design and a fresh set of colors.

As you can see we have been hard at work getting everything ready for the 2012-2013 school year. Come check out our website at to learn more about what Pre-Dental Society at UC Irvine can do for you. We meet odd Tuesdays at 5:00PM in NS2 4201.

This upcoming week is going to be super busy! Mark Hunt will be offering a tooth waxing course on Saturday at UC Irvine. Sunday I will be attending Care Harbor, a clinic in Los Angeles, similar to that of the CDA Cares event a few weeks ago. Have a great year everybody!
