Milwaukee Career College Grad Bridget Meehan

Veterinary Assistant Grad Bridget Meehan“Earlier this summer I completed the Veterinary Assistant program through Milwaukee Career College. It was the best decision in regards to schooling that I have ever made. School was fun, and school was interesting. I soaked up the knowledge and hands-on experience so quickly. Faster than I ever had in my undergrad Biology courses. My externship clinic experience was also great. And it even ended with a job offer, which I gladly accepted! Now I want to further my education and continue onto the MCC  Veterinary Technician Program this fall.

“My original goal in life was to become a Veterinarian. However, chemistry quickly squashed that dream. Now that I have found myself in the Veterinary world as an assistant, I am hooked. Education is very important to me. I want to gain as much knowledge as I can get my hands on and be as useful to the DVM as possible. Veterinary Technicians have more schooling, training, and are therefore qualified to perform more tasks in the clinic. I want the schooling and training to allow me to run lab work, do dentals, assist in surgery, and just learn more.

“My thirst for knowledge in this field and my studies, my confidence and my determination to succeed helped me shine in the assistant program. You will see me do the same in VT. Day one of VA I had developed a plan for success; a daily planner that marked off the times I needed to study, the “me time” to take breaks and keep my head about me, and blocking off time for school related opportunities such as surgery days and career fair. My planner will look similar as I start my journey of the VT program.”

Why Dental Assisting Training May Change Your Life for the Better

Dental Assisting training at MCCWhen you go to the dentist office, you spend the majority of your time with the dental assistant. The person with a smile, and friendly demeanor who makes the whole experience one you repeat each year. What does their day entail that makes dental assisting rewarding?

What is a Dental Assisting?

The primary role of a dental assistant is to anticipate the needs of both doctor and patient. The day’s work doesn’t end there for the dental assistant. When you see the dentist, you have x-rays taken or maybe even impressions. A dental assistant is responsible for every instrument and item needed for the procedure.

The assistant also hands the dentist the instruments and items necessary throughout the procedure at the appropriate times. The dentist may even allow the assistant to finish the procedure in some cases. Afterwards, the assistant sterilizes all of the equipment, ensuring all broken or non-functional instruments are discard and replaced. The room must also undergo a complete wipe down with specialized cleansers to keep you safe at each visit. These skills are vital to ensure the safety of every patient seen by the dentist.

Your dental chart will have special annotations made by the dental assistant regarding where you have cavities, prosthetics, and how deep the pockets of your gum tissue are around your teeth. Depending on the clinic, the skill set of the assistant, and the regulations in your municipality, the assistant may also clean your teeth.  Throughout the appointment the assistant provides you with tips and advice on how to better care for your teeth, also known as oral hygiene instruction.

Dental assisting training instructs in all of these skills to ensure you have a well-rounded professional catering to your oral health needs. Many assistants also manage the front desk. This entails setting up appointments, working with insurance, answering the phone, and ensuring the safety of personal health information. Dental assisting training prepares the hopeful assistant for all of these skills.

The day of a dental assistant is full of a variety of experiences, people, and opportunities for growth. Assistants never lack in work to do around the clinic so they don’t have much opportunity to get bored on the job. Who doesn’t  smile when they feel productive and challenged daily?

"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."
