I previously applied to Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in 2014. Instead of rushing myself to apply the next cycle, I waited another year, reevaluating myself and strengthening my application to become a more competitive candidate. Although I already had more than 400 hours of shadowing experience, working at the dental offices for a year showed me a more realistic view of dentistry – the physical demands that dentists face everyday, the difficulties of managing a budget and administrative work, and the responsibilities of supervising a large number of staff. Furthermore, I am more confident about my application now that I have strengthened my scientific background through an extra year of classes at UC Berkeley Extension. I took my studies even more seriously.
By the end of the year, this program peaked my interest in furthering my education and after working a year as a nursing assistant in different healthcare setting, I started attending Southern Maine Community College for pre-nursing studies in 2010. Working as a full-time nursing assistant and part-time college student, exciting opportunities have been presented to me. These opportunities include relocating to Pennsylvania for new perspective in 2012, yet still continuing my studies toward a nursing degree. Also, since moving back to Maine in 2014, I was hired on a childbirth unit to gain experience working in an aspiring career path. I have now experience working in patients homes, nursing homes, hospitals
During the next nine months of my life, I will be preparing to get my Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology license while also studying to receive a higher American College Testing score so that I can go to college. I will also be working at a hair salon as a receptionist so that I will be able to have a feel for what goes on in a hair salon. I have very specific goals that I have set for myself and I anticipate to accomplish them. My grandmother is a cosmetology instructor. All of my life, I have watched her cut, color, and style family and friend’s hair.
I would like to be apart of the first generation to graduate high school and attend college. My brother was the first to start it in my family. Now while I 'm young I 'm trying to make smart decisions that would benefit my career when I am older. One decision that I have made is attending Polytech High school which is a trade school. While I 'm here for my four years I plan on taking the Dental assisting class just to get a start in the Dental field.
I felt that these questions were a recap of my junior year with Dr. Keller and Dr. Russell had us identify each of these things, so I could answer them with absolute honesty and clarity. When the interview concluded, I was told that they would be in touch with me after receiving my background check. A few weeks had gone by and I received and email from Stephanie stated they were excited about having me intern there and I would have to complete a forty hour orientation prior to starting my internship. During my orientation, I learned that the hospital emphasizes teamwork and self-care, and how to communicate with patients. I was very surprised how efficient the orientation team was and how well-organized and task-centered they were, it made the entire experience
The orthodontics branch of dentistry also includes cosmetic dentistry, where patients aim to improve aspects of their physical appearance. Orthodontic treatment should ideally commence when a child is age 12, when the wisdom teeth are out and developed. In case the child has problems with the teeth, treatment may be delayed to address the issues beforehand. On the other hand, children who suffer from conditions such as cleft lip and palate may require early intervention and treatment. Orthodontist in Madison NJ and all over New Jersey encourage communities to undertake good oral hygiene to prevent tooth decay and ensure healthy teeth.
After completing research and getting many answers from a mentor that I personally know and trust; I definitely want to continue on the path to become a dental hygienist. There are many institutions such as, colleges, technical schools, or even hygiene programs you can attend to become a dental hygienist. Obtaining a dental hygiene certification does not take long to complete. You will need to complete 2-3 year program to obtain your associates in dental hygiene. Many people that chose to go to a university for a hygiene program are typically trying to reach a higher level in dentistry such as a dentist
Project Healthcare is the pinnacle of internships for undergraduate students with an interest in the medical field. The innovative nature of the program is steeped with vigor. I have been interested in entering the healthcare field in some capacity since a very young age. At fifteen, I started my explorations volunteering at Florida Hospital North Pinellas as a front desk volunteer on the Thursday evening shift. I met doctors and quickly realized the importance of patience advocacy.
As a returning student seeking a bachelor 's degree in my fifties, married for thirty-three years, I returned to college when our second born went to first grade, to become a registered nurse. As a typical nurse, I tend to put my needs second. Therefore, I am working toward completing my degree. As I read chapter one in Malcolm Gladwell 's book, the Outliers, I do not agree with Malcolm’s philosophy. While I was growing up; my childhood experiences were not about having choices to practice my talents, but the want and need to be part of a family business.
Learning about health care will be interesting to me as well, especially with the affordable care act being very big in the news right now. I believe dental care is a basic need. The affordable care act is seen by some as a necessity and not by others. I would enjoy discussing this topic in class and how we as a class would view its necessity in society. I am also a big supported of women’s right and I look forward to learning more about these topics and having civil class discussions.
