Welcome to Morrison Education Center!
Our goal at Morrison Education Center is to provide students with a well-rounded education in the healthcare profession through labs, lectures, and internships. Whether you have recently completed high school or you are looking to change careers, Morrison Education Center can lead you to the road for success.
The Morrison Education Center Difference
At Morrison Education Center we provide the opportunity for hands-on experience working alongside as many as 7 dentists and 4 office coordinators during actual working hours. Students will first learn the material in class, then they will practice their skills in our dental office during their lab time. Then, each week during their internship, students will practice their skills during normal working hours, working with real dentists and dental assistants. At Morrison Education Center, students don't just shadow or observe. Students complete 88 hours of internship, practicing the skills they learn during lab and lecture under the supervision of our highly experienced dentists and dental assistants. Students graduate with confidence, ready for the dental field. That is the Morrison Education Center difference.
Training Provided By Experts in the Field of Dentistry
Dr. Morrison has been practicing dentistry for 33 years and started Morrison Dental Group, a Williamsburg, VA Dentist with offices in Norge, Williamsburg and Chincoteague, 23 years ago. Collectively, our dentists have over 141 years worth of experience.
A Well-Rounded Education
Interns are able to witness so much more than just "general dentistry". In our offices, they can see orthodontics, implants, wisdom teeth extractions and oral surgery. Students will also be working with the latest dental technologies such as CEREC one day crowns, digital extraoral x-rays, Galileos 3D x-ray machine in Morrison Dental Groups's Cranial Facial Imaging Center, and learn about the Morrison Migraine Center and how to treat patients with chronic headaches and migraines.
If students are interested in pediatric dentistry, they will have the opportunity to learn from the industry experts. Many families travel from far distances (even out of state) to have their children treated at Morrison Dental Group. Students will have the opportunity to learn how to be successful with children in the dental office, without the need for sedation. Many of our graduates have also gone on to work in Orthodontist offices. With a certificate from MEC, students are not just limited to general dentistry.
In addition, students will learn about the dental office as a whole, not just dental assisting or dental administration. We feel it is important for them to understand how the entire dental office functions and how their role in the dental office affects other aspects.
Providing Assistance Even After Graduation
Students will also be trained on job searching, resume writing, and interviewing skills. Students are able to have one-on-one assistance with job placement during and after they complete the program. Dentists from all over Hampton Roads, the Richmond area, Middle Peninsula and the Northern Neck refer to our school when looking for the right dental assistant for their office. We are proud to recommend our graduates.
