Covid-19 pandemic situation affects everyone including student like me. Before this, I was used to going to school everyday but with the pandemic we are all forced to stay at home. The school needs to be closed, so we have to do online schooling.

Initially I thought it will be difficult because I have never done it before. However after a week or 2 I started to adjust and make my own schedule on how to study at home while taking care of my toddler.

Putting extra effort on reading text books, watching lecture videos of my professor, answering all assignments and reading all PowerPoints have helped me with online learning.

It is nothing compare to what we are accustomed to but we can learn a lot from the current situation. It all starts with trial and error but ultimately it’s up to us if we are willing to do it for ourselves for our future career.

I am one of the many students of Medix College taking the Dental Assistant program, who is a mom of three, and full-time wife. Like many, my life revolved around a very fast-paced schedule. During this Covid19 pandemic, we are forced to complete our school work and exams through online learning. With three kids also doing online learning, two of them in elementary school and one of them in highschool, it’s definitely not easy. I never knew doing school work and helping my kids with school work at the same time day by day from the time I woke up was something I thought I could ever do. I don’t know how teachers do it with 20+ kids Monday to Friday.

We have a great instructor who’s always monitoring what we’ve completed online, having online meetings, posting lectures online, and our classmates giving their input on class discussions, and this gives me a sense of assurance and relief that if I need help, it’s there. And if I had any questions, I don’t feel hesitated to ask.  It’s been more than a month since we were all informed that we had to start doing online learning. Day by day I’ve learned to adjust my schedule and balance what needs to be done on a daily basis, almost how it was before Covid19 started. Between being a mom or just being a student getting her work done and submitting them on time, I’ve kept in mind what I’ve told myself from the beginning when I first stepped into Medix, which is “Moving forward to having a better future”.

“I would like to express my sincere thanks to the entire team at the Medix College for the tremendous cooperation they did. I took a course in E.C.A & my teacher Ms.Andrea is a true inspiration. She not only devoted time, effort to myself & my fellow students, but she was always receptive to suggestions and responded positively to everything discussed during and after school hours.

Before this epidemic, we went to school everyday and now have to ensure we stay home & complete our courses online.
Additionally, I would like to thank the team for its continuous support & I would recommend Medix College to anyone. This college has great mentors and motivators & I wish the Medix team the most success in their future endeavours.”

“I was worried a lot about this new method of learning at first, because I can not see my lovely instructor, and I can not communicate with my classmates in person, it makes really upset and I feel kind of lost. I’m not sure what should I do. However, I receive a letter from my Instructor and she encouraged us keep studying, she will guide us how to achieve our daily goals of learning. Medix College Vice-President Peter also sent us a long letter to let us know we are never alone, the school members and instructors and everyone from Medix try to work hard for our benefit. Those letters and message are really comforting me as a student.

Online study is new for most of us and maybe difficult for us too, but we can not change our circumstances right now, we all have to stay at home for our safety. After a first week of studying I start to like the way of studying. We have a new discussion assignment to do, and I can see other students assignments too, we can leave a comment for others. I learned a lot from them. Nanci is so concerned our needs, she understand we have to take care of kids, do housework and other stuffs at home, so every assignment and exam, she gives us 24 hours to due. Right now I’m getting used to the routed we have each day. I’m so thankful that Nanci made the lecture of each chapter for us, it’s so detailed and easy to understand. Nanci arranged a Zoom meeting for us each week, so everyone of us can keep in touch through the internet. Although, I’m still miss going to school and I like we can all learning new things during the lab hours, but I’m happy we keep learning at home now. We are preparing ourselves for our future career. And the good thing is we are not alone, whenever I have a question, I send a message to my instructor, she will reply it when she has time, and other students are willing to help too.

If you are a new student and feel afraid of online studying like me before, please put your trust in Medix instructors, they all have great knowledge of teaching, and they know what is good for their students. Don’t waste your time stay at home watch all the bad news, manage your time to do good things, study for your own benefit.

Why a Simulated Dental Office Environment Is Essential to Dental Office Administration Training

July 12, 2019

Dental administration requires multi-tasking and tolerance for a busy environment. In your career, you will be required to use dental software, interact with clients and coworkers and use your best judgement when facing challenges like technical difficulties or last-minute scheduling issues. Working in a simulated dental office allows you to build on these skills without the risk of errors impacting your first day at work.

Everyone is excited and eager to start their careers after training, and this allows you to keep that enthusiasm without too many nerves over how it will feel to physically be in the working environment. Read on for some ways that a simulated environment helps you become a better dental office administrator!

Play out Scenarios in Dental Administration School with Little Consequence

There are no direct consequences on your career for needing to stop and ask a question within a simulated environment. Employers can’t see you, the situation is non-judgemental, and the focus is helping you learn, not testing you out for a job. In fact, it’s quite the opposite—simulated environments are great places to make mistakes. Research suggests that making errors and having an instructor help you correct them is beneficial to learning. Because these simulations in dental office administration training allow for time outs, clarification, elaboration, and redirection, they give you a time-stopping advantage that doesn’t exist elsewhere.

This type of training will boost your confidence and give you some experience points to stack up in preparation for a fulfilling and challenging career.

Active Learning in Dental Office Administration Training Increases Retention

Practicing by physically doing tasks in a simulated environment is one of the best ways to retain what you’ve learned in your courses. The Cone of Experience, sometimes referred to as the Learning Pyramid, was developed by Edgar Dale in the 1940s. It’s a theoretical model that has since been widely applied to learning and training methods. It posits, among other things, that we remember much more of what we do and practice than what we read or simply hear.

In simulations, you are forced to respond quickly as opposed to simply listening to someone else explain concepts. This gives you the benefit of experience in the real world without having to venture out into it just yet. The program is engineered for your learning so you experience what is most beneficial to you, compared to real-life offices where you can’t control or curate which experiences will come to you and when.

Emotion Is Involved to Prepare You Past a Dental Administration Program

Connecting your classroom learning to real-life situations is a way to see how you feel when you’re physically sitting in the “driver’s seat” and can process what you feel when you are there. A positive attitude is just as key in your career as it is in your training program, so having some experience dealing with tasks and problem-solving gives you a chance to see what you can do to maintain your energy and positive temperament. You may encounter some scenarios that you find are a little stressful at first, but since the dental administration program will offer a nonthreatening environment, you can work through how to deal with that stress, surrounded by support and resources.
