Summary of Internship

As an intern at DMG America, I was able to explore the world of dentistry from an accountant and financer’s point of view. During my time at DMG, I learned how money comes into a company, through the Accounts Receivable department, and how money is spent by the company, through the Accounts Payable department. Every day I input all the invoices and data entries in the MAS 90 program and make sure everything is updated correctly. Through this program I also do check printing at the end of every week and at the end of the month we have a big check run. This internship also helped me learn the marketing aspect of the company by giving me an opportunity to attend the largest dental trade show in the US. The remarkable experience at the trade show helped me understand the marketing strategies of our company better. Aside from gaining the experience in the Finance, Accounting, and Marketing department, I learned how to work in a professional environment where everyone is so serious and concentrated. These skills that are essential in the business field will help me succeed in the future. Since I am determined to work in the business field, gaining the experience from working in the three departments at DMG America will assist me in the future.
