      Program Description ↑ 

      The General Practice in Dentistry Residency is a one-year program that includes training in pediatric dentistry, endontics, periodontics, oral surgery, prosthodontics, and restorative dentistry. The General Practice Residency Program (GPR) at Denver Health Medical Center is a one-year educational program leading to a certificate. The program provides clinical, didactic, and hospital experience at the postdoctoral level. The instruction and experience prepares residents to meet the oral health needs of a broad range of patients.

      The GPR Program is designed to provide experience in various phases of inpatient and ambulatory dental care. Each dental resident rotates through rotations as follows: Anesthesia, Oral Surgery, Pediatric Dentistry, Endodontics, Periodontics, and Emergency Medicine. Residents are assigned "comprehensive-care" patients throughout the year for whom the resident will be responsible from the treatment planning phase through completion of the case.

      In addition to clinical experience, residents will be exposed to a variety of subjects through didactic sessions including, but not limited to, GPR rounds, treatment planning sessions, journal club meetings, grand rounds, practice management, and appearances by various guest speakers throughout the year.

      The GPR program strives to create an environment which enables residents to develop their clinical and intellectual skills. The program admits ten residents per year.
