Summary of Internship

Being an intern at Sunrise Dental with Dr. Correa as my mentor has provided me with a great experience looking into the field of dentistry. My typical Thursday consists of setting up schedules with the secretary, and observing the dental hygienist and dentist's routines and the overall flow of patients. Each week I get to observe new cases including the dental cleanings, root canals, teeth extractions, veneers, oral exams, and more. With most of the patients being Hispanic I get to also learn names of all procedures and instruments in another language which will definitely help me in the future. Learning about several dental procedures and tools has given me an insight on how dental school would be. I can say this internship has been truly advantageous and has given me great insight into the field of dentistry.
