      • To participate in community outreach programs to improve access to oral health care and to reduce the incidence of oral disease.
      • To develop in residents the ability to function in the hospital setting as a member of an interdisciplinary health care team.
      • To provide a broad understanding of the inner-relationship of dental and medical care to the physical, social and emotional needs of the patients.
