      Program Description ↑ 

       

      Located in an ethnically diverse residential neighborhood directly on the border of northern Brooklyn and western Queens, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center is a 350-bed teaching hospital. A dedicated staff of 1,800 physicians, nurses and support personnel represent thirty-five distinct languages and cultures.

      Wyckoff Heights Medical Center has been providing medical care to the community since 1889. Today, we see 75,000 visits annually in our Pediatric/Adult Emergency Departments, deliver 2,000 babies, offer outpatient services to thousands at our network of community ambulatory care centers and present extensive community health education and screening programs.

      The Department of Dental Medicine offers a full spectrum of dental services including: Preventive, Restorative, Fixed/Removeable Prosthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, Endodontics, Oral Surgery, Implantology, Special Care Dentistry and Dental Anesthesiology.

      Our General Practice Residency Program is designed to provide training beyond the pre-doctoral (dental school) level. Our education is based on the concept that oral health is an integral and interactive part of total health. The program will expand the scope and depth of the residents' knowledge and clinical skills which will enable them to provide comprehensive oral health care to a wide range of population groups.
