Internship Experience at A Plus Dental Care

University Commons

•The internship site, A Plus Dental Care, is a primary dental practice which generally performs a wide spectrum of treatments to patients from Bridgeport, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. •The goals of my internship were to gain experience in: taking x-rays, taking an alginate impression, making study models, making acrylic provisional crowns, and learning the basics for root planning and scaling, preparing cavities and performing fillings, endodontic treatments, post and cores, tooth extractions, dental implants, dental partials, dental totals, crown and bridge preparations and cementations. •These goals were accomplished by working as a dental assistant in the time period of my internship, which was from June 1- August 18, 2016. •The internship supervisor evaluated all the work that was done by expecting the same quality of work as if a dental assistant was performing those same tasks. •The goals of the internship were met since I am able to take a proper x-ray of the three types of x-rays that the office had to offer, take an alginate impression and make a study model, make an acrylic provisional crown for a study model, and learned to properly assist in all the procedures that I assisted in. •This experience has increased my desire to pursue my career goal of becoming a dentist.
