The Northern Tier Industry & Education Consortium (NTIEC) is pleased to announce they are partnering with Progressive Dental to offer a dental internship program to local high school students interested in the field of dentistry. “With dental offices in five communities (Montrose, PA; Binghamton, Endwell, Kirkwood and Norwich, NY), Progressive Dental is conveniently located to so many of our students in the northern tier,” states Deb Tierney, NTIEC Educational Coordinator.
The dental internship program will be modeled after NTIEC’s long-standing hospital internship program, whereas students will participate for three hours a day, once a week for approximately five-seven weeks during the fall and spring semesters. This unique opportunity will provide students with an up front and close look at the various jobs available in dentistry. They will observe and shadow dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, lab technicians and the office staff.
