Description of Agency/Activities: St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Dental Clinic (formerly Madre Angela Clinic) is a collaborative program sponsored by Columbia St. Mary’s to provide dental care to people in poverty without access to care. The clinic functions as the only provider of urgent dental care in Milwaukee for people without insurance. The clinic also provides restorative care, dental appliances, dental hygiene services, and a comprehensive school-based oral health program.
Student Role at Agency: The majority of the patients the clinic sees are Hispanic, many of whom speak Spanish as their primary language. The primary role of students will be to serve as intake assistants for patients, talking and asking questions to patients and entering information about patients to the clinic’s database. The students will sit at the front desk and will be responsible for greeting patients, as well as making reminder calls for upcoming patients. Many of the clients are illiterate, so at times the students will need to read the intake forms and educational materials to the patients in Spanish.
Orientation: Orientation is first day of service
