General Practice Residency in Dentistry

The General Dentistry Postgraduate Program has as its primary goal the preparation of general practice which encompasses clinical, didactic, and research skills.  The Advanced Education Program in General Dentistry is a 12-month hospital based program and is designed to offer a balanced clinical and didactic curriculum in general dentistry.  The faculty will provide a full range of clinical experiences in general dentistry which is supported by an in-depth, critical, and scholarly appraisal of the specialties knowledge base.

Our mission is to provide each resident extensive clinical opportunities in behavior management, hospital dentistry, general anesthesia, pediatric medicine, emergency medicine, care of developmentally and medically compromised patients, trauma management, and other special areas.  The clinical experiences are supported by a structured didactic seminar designed to encourage critical thinking appropriate to specialty level education in general dentistry.

The overall curriculum is designed to prepare our graduates with the knowledge base and clinical skill level which allows successful entry into the contemporary practice setting of general dentistry. 

The program has been planned in accordance with the guidelines for postdoctoral education of the American Dental Association Council on Dental Accreditation.  Upon completion of the program the resident receives a certificate in general dentistry.
