Background Information

Since 1982, DMG America, formerly known as Zenith Dental, provides professional dental restorative products to North America and partners with top global dental manufacturers. DMG America researches, produces, and develops professional dental equipment to sell to dealers and manufacturers, who in turn sell to American and Canadian dentists.

Summary of Internship

Everyday, I start out by doing data entry for samples of products into Microsoft Excel. These samples are part of the promotion for the marketing team for a line of products. I also label, pack, and ship these samples using the Fedex machine to the dentists and dealers. I also box and organize for the sales representatives who are always traveling to different dealers and dentists, and advertising DMG America’s products. I presented a total of 3 presentations which were about the dental industry, DMG America’s products, and why DMG America attends tradeshows. By data entering and boxing, I learned that even the small things of a business end up contributing a lot towards the final sales. By presenting, I learned how to professionally manage my time and information. From small tasks like data entry to big experiences like tradeshows, I feel well prepared to move on to the next step in my “career.”
