General Practice Residency in Dentistry

SFHMCSpringTulips-Horiz The General Practice Residency in Dentistry is fully accredited by the American Dental Association and the Commission on Dental Accreditation, and conforms to the Standards of Accreditation for Advanced Education Programs in General Dentistry. The Department of Dentistry sponsors nine General Practice Residents. In addition to the one-year experience an optional 2nd-year program is available. The department manages two modern dental facilities with a total of 17 available operatories. The Residency is supported by five full-time faculty and two half-time dentists, in addition to an active voluntary teaching staff and a large support staff of clinical personnel, including dental assistants, dental hygienists, certified laboratory technicians, and clerical personnel.

STAFFThe Department of Dentistry is an integral part of the hospital and provides structured clinical, didactic, and interdepartmental experiences. The principal teaching method employed in the residency program is clinical experience and mentorship. Clinical practice is augmented with lectures and seminars presented by full-time and visiting faculty from various fields of dentistry and medicine. Although there are no specific case requirements, residents maintain a varied case load that addresses all aspects of general and hospital practice.
