      The program emphasizes on the treatment of a wide range of oral health disorders, medical considerations related to dental care, the ability to treat medically compromised and handicapped patients and teaches how to provide dental care in a hospital environment interacting with health care providers of various disciplines. The program also provides an opportunity to provide comprehensive care in a private practice and public health setting, allowing the residents to get the confidence they need to practice in various practice models.
