      Program Description ↑ 

      Program Description: The primary goal of this comprehensive residency in general dentistry is to provide the residents with continued opportunity for professional growth and advancement. The AEGD residents participate actively in the patient care mission of our medical center. However, their schedules are carefully planned to provide educational experiences to meet the requirements listed for the specific program by the ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation. The residents receive training in the surgical placement and restoration of implants, periodontal surgeries, endodontics, esthetic restorations, fixed and removable prosthodontics (including full mouth rehabilitation), oral surgery, and the treatment of medically compromised patients. A number of assignments to medical services offer the residents opportunity to enhance their knowledge of the relationship between oral and systemic problems, and to broaden their clinical experience in the management of patients with medical and psychiatric conditions.
