Elmbrook Humane Society

Elmbrook Humane Society takes care of homeless and neglected pets. This center provides top rated pet care. It is also a no-kill organization, so pets are not killed in most conditions. During an externship at Elmbrook, students practice in a no-kill vet setting.

Dental Assistant say what? Here’s what Wikipedia doesn’t tell you!

Pictured is the wikipedia logo and a tooth brush - Dental AssistantIf you want a rewarding career, the job of a dental assistant may be exactly what you are looking for. You may have already searched for information about dental assistants online. However, sites like Wikipedia only offer partial information. You may learn about earnings and dental assistant training requirements, but there are some things that these sites won’t tell you. What makes a great dental assistant?

People Skills

Many of a dental assistant’s tasks require direct contact with people. In order to be effective, you have to care about the wellbeing of others– and enjoy spending time with them.
During your day, you may be required to help soothe patients to increase their comfort level throughout their treatment. Keep in mind that a good outcome depends partly on the patient’s cooperation. By calming an anxious patient, you can reduce the need for sedation medicine, such as laughing gas.

Ability to Multitask

Dental assistants wear many hats throughout a workday. Thus, you must be flexible. You may assist a dentist by taking x-rays or making a mold of a patient’s mouth. In addition, you may sterilize tools and give at-home care instructions after a dental service. You may even perform office duties. You can expect to schedule appointments, order supplies and bill for services. To be successful, a dental practice requires all of these functions, and you are there to provide them.

Desire to Learn

A good dental assistant welcomes the opportunity to learn new things. In dentistry, new technologies and procedures are constantly developed. Yet, the dentist is not the only one who needs to be familiar with the innovations. You will likely learn about them as well.

Also, some practices offer multiple types of care. The same office may provide preventive and restorative treatments. In addition, it may offer cosmetic and orthodontic services. As a result, your knowledge must be broad.  To excel at your work, you must be willing to learn new things on a regular basis.

If these attributes describe you, a dental assistant career may be a perfect fit.

Career College or Community College? Take your career to the next level!

Pictured is a the word "future" held up with scafoldingAccording to Archimedes, “The shortest distance between two points is a straight line.”  While Archimedes, famed mathematician, astronomer and scientist, never had to choose between attending a community college or attending a career college, odds are good that he’d have picked the most direct route to his intended career. Will you make that same choice?

Career Colleges Provide a Direct Career-Path

Many Milwaukee community colleges place heavy emphasis on broad education. This means you’ll take classes in English and math. You may also be required to brush up on general science, literature and communication. A general education is never a bad thing. But it can be a more round-about way of reaching your career goals.

A career college, such as Milwaukee Career College, places much more emphasis on classes designed around your field of study. This gets you through the program more quickly. It also provides the experience you’ll need to be successful.

Career Colleges Offer Flexibility

Maybe you need classes that fit around your 9-5 job. Maybe you need to attend around the schedule of your daycare provider. If so, a career college may be the better, more convenient option. Milwaukee Career College offers many classes designed to fit a broad range of schedules. Attend at night, in the early afternoon or during the early morning hours. Regardless, you’ll find a class you need at a time that works for you. And when it’s time for an externship, you’ll find that too.

Contact Us Today

If you’re undecided about which path leads most directly to the career you desire, contact Milwaukee Career College today. Our friendly and informed staff is waiting to answer your questions. We understand that your future education is an important topic. And we have the answers you need. If the time is right to begin your training in dental, medical, surgical or veterinary assisting, MCC offers the classes, the flexibility and the affordability you need to succeed.

While I was a student at MCC I had an amazing time. All the teachers took the time to get to know their students, even Dr. Cybela. I was able to learn hands on in the career, and Mcc helped me find a Job in the field I studied. This is a great school, and I am glad I was a student.

"My time at MCC was amazing! The faculty and staff genuinely care about each and every student. I couldn’t thank Mrs. Hoover, Mrs. Jordan, and Mrs. Buckley enough for teaching us the knowledge and skills we need to succeed in the medical field. Hard work and dedication landed me an externship I could only dream of with Froedtert Hospital. I am beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to accept an offer and start my career as a medical assistant with Froedtert Hospital. Dream. Achieve. Succeed."
