Today we bid a fond farewell to Paóla Benefo. Paóla was the very first member of the Gold Lab, joining him after the two met at Caltech. The whole lab will sorely miss her, but we offer the warmest congratulations for starting dental school at UC San Francisco! Becoming a dentist has been a long-time dream for Paóla, and we couldn’t be prouder that she is attending this prestigious program. We wish her the best of luck and know she will build a leading, inclusive dental practice in California, Ghana, or wherever her travels take her.
