Advanced training is given in all disciplines within the scope of general practice including: oral surgery, endodontics, periodontics, fixed and removable prosthetics, pediatric dentistry, preventative dentistry and implantology. An ongoing relationship with an oral surgery program in New York City creates an opportunity for residents to be involved in all cases of facial trauma, from admission to discharge.
Our Attending staff includes at least one specialist in each discipline of dentistry.
When on assignment in Medicine, residents participate as equals with the medical residents in all rounds, conferences and seminars. They participate in procedures such as drawing blood and intubation while on their Anesthesia rotation and gain experience in the use of inhalation as well as oral and parental techniques of pain control.
A course in physical diagnosis is also provided, as is monthly evening courses. Residents are also involved in a weekly diagnosis session and in the insertion and utilization of implants.
