If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the mouth is the window to one's internal health. According to the Surgeon General, gum disease can predict a pending heart attack, jaw problems can hint at joint problems, and oral infections can even lead to premature births. That's why the... medical field is by no means exclusive of the dental profession. Professionals help medical and dental offices run smoothly, communicate with patients and insurance providers, and work with health care information technology to keep good records and increase efficiency.
A formal education is required for medical/dental occupations, though it varies by profession. For example, an associate's is appropriate for entry-level work as a Medical Assistant, Dental Assistant, Medical Billing Specialist, Medical Equipment Technician, Dental Hygienist, or Physical Therapy Assistant, just to name a few professionals that are in high demand. A bachelor's is more appropriate for managerial positions in medical and dental offices, while medical providers such as nurse practitioners and doctors must attain advanced degrees in order to practice.
Because many health services jobs do not require hands-on training, the opportunity to earn a degree online appeals to individuals who need scheduling flexibility. Online programs allow students to work at their own pace, practice with computer-based applications, and engage with instructors and classmates in a high-tech, multimedia platform.
