Dear Class of 1986, 

It is always a great honor and pleasure to have the 
opportunity to greet the graduating class and wish them 
Godspeed. Many long years of college and dental school are 
drawing to a close and it is hard to believe that so much has 
happened in that time. Each of you has grown in those years 
into a health care professional entrusted with the life and 
welfare of your fellow men and women. That is an enormous 
privilege and responsibility but you will handle it well because 
you have been fully prepared. 

Professionally you have taken just the first step. You still 
must attend to your continued education on a regular basis 
so that you will advance and grow. Dentistry is not static. 
Indeed it is changing with such rapidity that you will need to 
work at staying up to date right from the beginning. This need 
not involve expensive winter courses in Colorado or Florida. 
It does involve keeping in touch with your colleagues, 
attending local dental society meetings and at least one 
national meeting annually. It requires real participation in 
those meetings - not just registering and going off to see the 
local tourist attractions. 1 hope that you will also stay in touch 
with Loyola where the seeds of your professional success were 
sown and where there is still a vast repository of knowledge 
and skill available to you. 

Finally, you must look to your personal life, to your 
spouse, to your children, parents and friends. You have 
probably neglected them somewhat these last few years. You 
must make them a full part of your life and become a part of 
theirs. We all know that professional success matters little if 
you lost out personally. All the people in your life are important 
but above all your family and your patients. Treat them with 
care and consideration and you will be a success. 

I wish you joy in your work, peace in your heart and a few 
dollars at the end of the day. May the road rise with you and 
the wind be always at your back. S. M. D.

I would like to thank my 
mother for instilling confidence 
in me for this long haul. I would 
like to dedicate graduation to 
my father, for he was my guid- 
ing light of strength through- 
out my years of schooling, I 
would like to thank my darling 
wife, Kathy, for helping me 
through some hard times. To 
Tom and Paul, my two part- 
ners, through thick and thin, all 
I have to say to you two, is don't 
ever change, and who s buying 
lunch today? And to the rest of 
the Class of 86, good luck in 
your future endeavors and may 
god bless you all 

Ted M. Baer 

Thanks to my parents and fiancee 
for all their love and support. Also, to 
the Class of 86. for your humor, your 
friendship, and for making this experi- 
ence bearable, my heartfelt thanks. 
Ferry Como popularized a song, the 
first words being, "The bluest skies 
you've ever seen are in Seattle.'' I'm 
warning you, it's a lie!!

1 would first like to thank my parents and the Weiss - all gave 
me confidence for this endeavor. Mostly, 1 must thank my wife, Mary

times and are most important in my life. I love you all.

The best way to cure many of the ills of a partial denture 
rosthesis is to anticipate the troubles which may be encountered 
nd to change the conditions so that these difficulties never 
appen. There is no way more sure of accomplishing this than by 
ne intelligent use of the surveying instrument.

My years at Loyola have been filled with many good times and, of 
course, some bad. Overall I enjoyed my tenure here, met many good 
friends, and worked with many good people in achieveing a quality dental 

I hope to keep in contact with these friends and promise to invite them 
to come out to my cattle ranch in Montana, the one I keep talking about, 
right P.P? 

The four years at Loyola required lots of time and effort, and without 
the support and understanding of my wife, Diane, may not have happened. 
Thus, I wish to acknowledge her contribution to my achieving a dental 
degree from Loyola. 

To everyone in the class of 1986, I wish the best of luck in their future 
endeavors and good health. 

Suzanne M. Bielinski 

James E. Bishop 

Before I entered dental school, I was told, "these will 
be the best four years of your life, so enjoy them" and 
"you'll look back at these four years and wish you could 
start over again." 

In reflection on this, I tried to find some brief instant 
when this advice proved true. I could not. I couldn't even 
come close. What I do remember are some great road 
trips. So I'll rephrase these words of wisdom I was told: 
"These will be the best four years of road trips of your 
life." That sounds better to me. Ask me about these 
pictures at our ten year reunion.

Reasons to be Cheerful, Part III" 

You were all great. If I could, Id buy each and everyone of you a can of Prarie Belt sausage. 
But I can t, for they closed the Metro, the only supplier. I did buy a can for Sluggo, and he might 
show it to you • if you ask real nice. He won't show you the contents (no one has seen that), 
but he will show you the serving suggestion. 

I offer a list of words and phrases. If one or more makes you grin, then good. If they leave 
you with feelings of disinterest and digust, then I succeeded as well. Hang on, here we go: What 
you mean I smell like can of corn, Dave?; It's a Dorsey; Mr. Brown, all clear; Cho-locks, Bad food 
and their variations; The Turkey Story; power calves and the flyin' Hawaiian; Fat spin, fat toss, 
and party mix; Pantomim Princess Margaret (scleorderma at its best); El Ferol; The House of 
Italian Shoes; Doc and Joe Pelfrey s (If you've never been Pelfreyed, you ve never been here); 
Are we going with you - OR WHAT -; That was a blast - let's do it again; Mrs. Klein - you wore 
green so you could hide; Electric jello; He was found to be literally "stoneman "; Your sister is 
a common bile duct; Tanks for de nothin!!; Moreltnies (They can kill you); Are we having fun 
yet?; Two schools - left, right; Sedagives; The look of Henle; Piggy -I can't see you; Com is the 
indicator; Ted's parrot; Did we get pyuned - OR WHAT? 

I think that's enough - it does remind me of a story, though: One day 1 was sitting at home, 
threatening the kids and I looked out the hole in the wall and 1 saw this tank drive up and one 
of Dinsdale's boys gets out and comes up all nice and friendly like and says Dinsdale wants to 
have a talk with me. So he chains me to the back of the tank and takes me for a scrape round 
to Dinsdale's place. And Dinsdale s there in the conversation pit with Doug and Charles Paisley 
the babycrusher, and a couple of film producers, and a man they called Kierkegaard who just 
stay there biting the heads of whippets. And Dinsdale says to me. "Oh, you've been a naughty 
boy, Clement and he splits my nostrils open, and saws my leg off and pulls my liver out. I said, 
My name's not Clement and then he loses his temper and then he nails my head to the floor. 

Oh, one more thing before I finish. How many cleidocranial dysostoses can you fit in a 
Volkswagen? Let me know. "Bye.

1 really can't think of much to say 
that I haven't already said, and every- 
thing else speaks for itself. Doesn't it? 
Oh, I remember now! Despite all the 
contradiction, inconsistency, ' JAGS", 
and sleepness nights I really had a great 
time here. Anyone who pays this much 
and doesn't say that; has a far greater 
grasp on reality than I. I intended to 
reflect on past moments, but no. I have 
a few unanswered questions: 
1) If there's an axial wall and a pupal 

floor, then what's a pupal wall (re; 

Board Question)? 

2) Isn't the statement, If you file 
don't fill and if you fill don't file, 

3) How big is the "orifice'' on polysulfide tubes? 

4) Why hasn't anyone brought the stinky janitor in the men's locker 
room as an entry in the bad food parties? 

5) Why isn't my patient here yet? 

6) What does Gene, the Dancin' machine, have for wax anyway? Gene, 
get a clue. 

Thanx to the instructors who did more for me than just getting me 
through here. You are few and far between. Your encouragement, 
recommendations, and times spent listening to me is greatly appreciated. 
You know who you are. Thanx again. 

Special thanx to Mark Rappleye for teaching me everything I know 
about lab stuff. Thanx to my father who provides spiritual and financial 
backing. Thanx to Mom for the roof and refrigerator. Thanx to Mana. Kim, 
and Annette who only want the best for me. 

Good luck to everyone.

Even though the past four years have been enjoyable and full of wonderful experiences we 
ouldn't trade for anything. We have all paid a high price for our D.D.S. degrees. We can only

family and friends; for that 1 am grateful. I

to take the opportunity to thank all of mj 
new friends, the instructors who have pu 
in their time and effort, and most impor

the best of what life has to offer to the Class of 86,

The long-awaited time has come. Less 
thanks to some, but heartfelt thanks to 
others. The unholy triumverate - Lee, 
Harris, Charlie, you preserved my sanity, 
held a shoulder always ready, and were first 
and loudest to reprimand where necessary. 
As the song says, "without you . . ." 

The parents. You gave me everything 
I needed. Inadequate, but - Thank you. I 
love you. 

The road less traveled 
The freedom of choice 

the option to succeed 
May the past give me the wisdom 
to revel in the future.

If it wasn't for your obnoxious 
sense of humor, I'm sure that I would 
have dropped out of dental school a 
long time ago. Someday we will look 
back on some of the things that we 
have gone through and laugh. I will 
always remember, "I can't see!" in 
Anatomy, memorizing Neuro slides on 
your kitchen walls, waxing overlays 
and crowns via the Krueger method, 
xeroxing thousands of tests in the 
library, recapitulating'' for boards, 
and lunches at J.J. s. Thanks for being 
my bridge solderer and for the pa- 
tients. Remember: Don't ever move to 
Berwyn, never wear polyester, and 
always be tan.

One of the most important things 
1 have learned in dental school is 
that no job is finished until the 
paperwork is done. 

David P. Lachajewski 

1 don't know if it's funny, good or bad, but 
the things I remember most about dental school 
have nothing to do with dentistry. 

Most obvious are the bands I've had the 
pleasure of being part of. Though neither lasted 

very long, they provided some of the most incredible experiences I've ever had. So, Joe B., Paul, 
Cathy, Don, Casey, Eric, Len and Shef, and of course Buzzy, thanks for those days, they will 
always be remembered. Less obvious to most are the things that happened to me and some 
of my closest friends. Joe married the love of his life, Lynn, Len asked Kathy to be the love of 
his life. I found the girl I want to be the love of my life, Pat. And finally Kurt, what can I say. 
Everthing seems to come to him in its due time and Kurt, as most know goes with the flow. And 
so, Kurt, good luck to you with your pedo residency and with talking Meredith Baxter Birney 
into dumping David and going with you. Farewell L.U.

It has been four years, and at last we have established a career, 
i profession. The main persons I can attribute this to are my parents, 
vho stuck with me through thick and thin. If it weren't for them I would 
not be here. There are not enough emotions or words to thank George 
and Zabelle. 

There are other people to thank as well, all my friends who I can 
xust. Like two spies breaking into a secret safe, looking out for each 
Dther, "don't be bitter, check for anesthesia, where are we going, ask 
i question ask a question, rear delivery.'' I cannot forget my mentor, 
check is in the mail'' and of course me "you look good, you feel 
jood, you do good.''

Up until a few years before dental school, 
I worked as a ranch hand on a worm farm. I then 
tried my luck as an impersonator of famous 
people. Here I am pictured after winning first 
prize in the Raffi Leblebijian look-a-like contest. 
I received several fabulous prizes including a 
four year scholarship to the dental school of my 
choice, complete wardrobe (e.g. cowboy outfit 

pictured here), and a Lambourghini Countach's sport car. After finishing dental school, I plan on 
making my way across the country performing in one handed rodeos. 

In closing I would like to thank my parents, relatives, and fiancee (seriously); and also Don King 
(aka thriller in manila"), Pee Wee Herman, Oscar Meyer (aka "my bologna has a first name"), Brooke 
Shields, Hulk Hogan, Colonel Hogan, Colonel Sanders, Jimmy Buffet, Sawa's Old Warsaw Buffet, Frank 
Clifford, Frank Necrosis, "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn (aka Clark Cable), Clark Gasoline, Clark

Memories of trying to get preliminary impressions on metal models, 
cavity preps on dentec teeth that turned out looking like bottomless pits 
after "just trying to fix it up a little ", and thejitters of meeting with patients 
for the first time. There were a lot of obstacles to overcome, and a lot to 
learn, but it got done - somehow. I never could have done it without the 
help and support of my family and my fiancee. I will always be grateful to 

Michael P. McCafferty 

It is very difficult for me to comment on four years of dental school in 
just a few short paragraphs, so maybe it would be better ifl didn't try. Instead, 
1 think I'll use this opportunity to say that I've met a lot of great people here 
at Loyola and have made a lot of friends, several of which have become very 
good friends. We've all been through quite a bit togther, but it's finally over 
(or is it just starting?), and I wish everyone the best of luck with their future. 

1 would also like to take this chance to thank my parents for all their 
support, both moral and financial, during these years. Finally, but never last, 
1 want to thank my wife Qeri. Without her, these last four years would have 
been tougher than they actually were. She was always there when I needed 
her and was very patient throughout. The diploma that 1 will receive is as 
much hers as it is mine.

1 am hopeful that long after the rigor and hardship 
of dental school has been forgotten the many friendships 
and great times are still a fond memory. I wish all of my

and greatest of success.

Dental school was a trying, fulfill- 
ing experience. It gave me the 
opportunity to make new friends 
that were there to help through 
some rough times. Finally, 
Wine comes in a bottle, 
Beer comes in a can. 
If I can make it through 
dental school. 
Anybody can. 

Steven J. Nicorata 

It is truly impossible to personally thank everyone who has contributed to my personal and 
professional development. 1 therefore thank my colleagues, as a whole, who shared with me all of 
the experiences of dental school. You made the stressful times seem bearable, maybe because 1 
was able to reflect on the fact that we were all in this together. The support and encouragement we 
gave to one another often helped me to forget many of my own, often times insignificant, problems. 
Many of you made those long hours of studying seem much easier, and what seemed to be those 
brief moments of celebration more enjoyable. I am sure that we will never forget thejoy and the pain 
we endured to achieve our final goal. 

If there is one wish I have for all of us, it is that we never forget what it is like to be ignorant and 
unconfident and that we may try to ease the way for those who come behind us. I wish to extend 
to all of you my sincerest best wishes for success and happiness in all of your future endeavors, and 
of all of our memories of the past four years, may we especially remember the people - the ones 
who struggled with us and the ones who made us struggle. 

I cannot leave LUMC without giving a heartfelt thanks to the staff and faculty. To my instructors 
I must say that your knowledge, support and supervision are the main factors that put all of us where 
we are today. I truly admire your skill and dedication and hope that my colleagues and I may be 
able to utilize our knowledge to help others grow and learn the way you have helped us. 

To the staff at the medical center, I would like you to know that your unlimited service and assistance will not be forgotten. Each year 
a group of students graduates and moves on and a new group moves in. You are there every year assisting each class during what is probably 
the most difficult four years of their lives. As we move on to a new phase of our lives may I say that each of you will be remembered for 
your constant service, support and friendship. I can recollect several experiences over the past four years where my days would have ended 
in turmoil without your assistance, and for all of these times 1 express a deep gratitude. 

As my dental education at LUMC comes to an end, I can honestly say that the last four years may not have been the best years of 
my life, but they certainly were not the worst. The insurmountable tasks I faced at the beginning of each new quarter would never have 
been achieved without the support of my wonderful family. 1 owe an abundance to my parents who worked hard and sacrificed so much 
to give me this opportunity. 

My wife also sacrificed much during the past few years and both shared and endured the many ups and downs I encountered. She 
made the past four years not only bearable, but enjoyable. To you, Peggy, and to both our families, I wish to extend deep gratitude for 
your continual love, support, encouragement, understanding and prayers for which I will never be able to repay. 1 love all of you very much 
and I am as proud if not prouder of you as you are proud of me. 

I would like to give a final recognition of my thanks to God, who answered my prayers and was at my side every step of the way.

because they have shown me now to be a better man. To

Dental school for me has been so 
many things, a time to grow, a time to learn, 
and a time to develop my talents. Dental 
school was also a dream come true. Even 
though there have been a few nightmares 
and setbacks along the way one of my 
dreams has finally materialized. I have so 
many people to thank for helping me 
realize this goal, but the ones that gave the 
most of themselves to me was my family. 
I would like to thank them for their constant 
encouragement and most of all their under- 
standing. Without them I think many times 
I would have given up, but their positive 
attitudes brought me through more than 
they will ever realize.

Somebody said that it couldn't be done 

But he with a chuckle replied 
That "maybe it couldn't ', but he would be one 

Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. 
So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin 

on his face. If he worried he hid it. 
He started to sing as he tackled the thing 

That couldnt' be done, and he did it. 

Somebody scoffed: "Oh you II never do that; 

At least no one ever has done it"; 
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat, 
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, 

Without any doubting or quiddit. 
He started to sing as he tackled the thing 

That couldn't be done, and he did it. 

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, 

There are thousands to prophesy failure; 
There are thousands to point out to you one by one, 

The danger that wait to assail you, 
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, 

Just take off your coat and go to it- 
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing 

That "cannot be done", and you'll do it.

Four years of dental school has caused a revision in my college 
motto of; 

"nothing academic is worth losing a nights sleep" 
I have now come to share the opinion of Woody Allan when 
he said; 

Summing up, life is full of great opportunities. It also has 
pitfalls. The trick will be to seize the opportunities, avoid the 
pitfalls, and be back home by six o'clock."

My friends here at Loyola. 

I would also like to share with my classmates "basic principles" which 
have guided my dental education. The instructors will remain anony- 
mous but should be easily recognizable: 

"The best way to get wax off denture teeth? Don't get it on in the first 
place. " 

"Don't quench in the vats." 

"Any operator who thinks he can spot grind in the mouth is only kidding 
"How long will it go on? As long as there's a gradient." 

When you're in the tube, you re outside the body." 
"The only thing money can't buy is poverty." 

If you can't see them, you can t fill them." 

You have to learn how to abuse soft tissues in a controlled kind of way. 

The best way to take a maxillary impression is to come from behind 
and spread the cheeks." 
"If it feels good in your hands use it." 

What you gotta do is take ten steps back and look at the whole picture. 
"You have to know where you are and where you've been to know where 
you're going." 

"People gotta die someplace." 
"It's your license, lotsa luck. 
Thank you, all

I'd like to dedicate part of this page to my good friends who made getting through this place 
just a little bit easier. To Raffi "sure I'm a citizen Leblebijian, who taught me the pitfalls of having 
a "negative attitude". He s the only person I know that can clear a golf course when he steps 
up to the first tee. Hang on to your "Sure Grip" driver, you II need it. 

To John Kontos, Greece s answer to the energy crisis, best wishes to you and your lovely 
fiancee Francis. John's the only person 1 know who can keep up with Raffi at the dinner table. 

To Tom Sonneveld, who helped keep things in perspective while at school. Underneath that 
nonchalant, calm exterior is a nonchalant calm interior. Like I said, he keeps things in 
perspective. Good luck in the Air Force, sarge. 

To Kim Young, fire and spunk, and a deadly determination to get through sophomore 
operative lab. Take that, Dr. Martin. I'll never forget how funny it was when I made you cry when 
I found out about my surprise birthday party. 

And finally, to my Mom and Dad, who gave me nothing but praise and support from the time 
I was born. I know that I can never repay you for all you ve done for me. I can only hope that 
I ve made you half as proud of me as 1 am of you. Thank you, I love you both very much.

I'm sure you can imagine 
It's as simple as can be 
The place is very private 
The place is he and she 

She whispers "will it hurt' 
"of course not" He replied 
It's just a simple process 
Lay back and close your eyes 

She says "I'm very frightened 
I've never done this before 
He starts to convince her 
It won't hurt you anymore 

How calm yourself my darling 
As faith heals all your sins 
Open very wide 
So I can get in 

"Must end dental school on a good note. 

He and She 

It's really something painful 
As tears rolled down her eyes 
It hurt her something awful 
It must be quite a size 

Then suddenly with a jump 
She gave a little shout 
It's over thank goodness 
You finally got it out 

As you read this carefully 

He s a dentist as you find 

It's not what you been 


It sjust your dirty mind.

where to begin. I guess the one phrase that runs through my mind is Thank 
You, it doesn t seem adequate for all that you have done for me. 

Thank you for all of your sacrifices, and what you went without so that 
I might have all that I needed. 

Thank you for all of your support, not just financial support but the 
emotional and spiritual support as well. 

Thank you for your confidence in me. Knowing that you believed in me 
seemed to give me strength when I had my doubts. 

Most importantly, thank you for your love. It was knowing 1 had your love 
that made the bad times tolerable and the good times even more special. 
It's good to know that with all the worries and stress there was one thing I 
didn't have to worry about, losing your love. 

For many years Mom you have been telling people how proud you are 
of me. Well this is my opportunity to say how proud I am of you. Mom, Dad, 
Carrie, and George. 

With love, 

Kurt A. Wagner

Thanks to my Mom and Dad for always saying, You 
can do it! To Patti and David for first encouraging me 
to pursue dentistry. To Courtney for making me see 
there's life outside of dental school. And to my 
husband Randy who never refused to lend a profession- 
al hand and made our meeting in dental school the best 
part of my four years at Loyola.

It's over, finished, done no more eight o clock classes, no more technique labs, no 
more blue coats, no more waiting in line to have work checked!!! SIQH! Oh, it really 
wasn't all that bad, now, with only an unimaginable future in front of me, bear with 
me as 1 acknowledge those who make all of this suddenly seem worthwhile. 
To My Mom and Dad: What can I say? You not only helped whenever you could, but 
your mouths were veritably Unit QOld mines. Seriously, Dad, I hope I find in dentistry 
the joy and fulfillment that you have, you've been GREAT!!! I love you both. 

Thank you so very much 
To My Grandparents: Who steadfastly insisted that and education was the greatest gift 
one could give onself. (Plana, we can cut back on the Mass cards now!!) 

Thank you 
To My brother and sisters: We've all changed a lot in the last four years, strangely- 
enough, 1 feel we've grown closer; Let's keep it that way. 

To Uncle Timmy: You have been an advisor and a friend. 

Many Thanks 
To My Friends: Who have kept in contact, and in turn kept me in touch with the "real 

Thanks you guys 
To the faculty and staff: Those of you, who gave the best of yourselves, in guiding me 
through these rigors, it was not in vain. 

Thank you all 
To Dr. Chludzinski: For everything. We came to visit four years ago and stayed. You've 
put up with our mess and our troubles. You and Kathy are the best. (Mow, aren't you 
going to miss us, just a little??) 

Thank you both 
To My classmates: Those of you who were there, everyday, witnessing the tears and 
frustrations, the miscasts, mispreps, and broken inlays!! More importantly, those who 
encouraged, helped and laughed (a lot). 

Thank you all 
Well, outside of the Pope and the President, I think I ve covered everyone!!

Hel, always rememer where you 
are, Blondie! People always felt you 
knew what was going on; who would 
believe the truth? Hours of memor- 
izing; Bulbo, "tremors ", certain- 
ly", "awight", "a potpourri", not to 
mention it would behoove you". 
Hel, maybe now you can purchase 
a car that fits your personality; a 
Chrysler, of course! Thanks for 
keeping me awake.

I will never forget the four 
years 1 spent at Loyola. In some 
ways they were the best years 
of my life but in someways the 
worst. I met alot of really great 
people at Loyola and hope to 
keep in touch. 

The pictures that 1 selected 
show what I have been dream- 
ing about for the past four 
years. After living my entire life 
in California, these past four 
years have required a total 
change in lifestyle. Stop by and 
see us in Leucaulia if anyone 
gets out to San Diego.

sincere congratulations to each member of the Class of
