  • Advanced Education in General Dentistry

    This program is designed to provide each resident exposure to a variety of comprehensive and episodic care encounters within the framework of a group practice situation. The emphasis is placed on comprehensive care. It is anticipated that the residents will avail themselves to the immediate access readily offered by the generalist and specialist faculty.

    Practice management techniques will be encouraged in this program. Each resident will actively participate in the management of their patients, the auxiliaries, and laboratory interactions.

    Monthly reports based on production will be provided and evaluated by the faculty with the resident.

    The faculty monitors the progress of each of the residents through the approval of treatment plans, laboratory cases, record audits, and evaluation of monthly printouts showing quantity and types of procedures performed.

    Dental care is rendered in the School of Dentistry Residency Clinic , the Jackson Medical Mall Dental Clinic, UMDC or the ER. Occasional emergent dental care is rendered in the University Hospital Emergency Room. Residents also participate in operating room cases with the GPR residents on a special needs population.

    These experiences are augmented by a rotation in the Children's Hospital Dental Clinic. This rotation exposes the resident to pediatric patient management techniques and treatment of a special needs pediatric population with both outpatient and operating room experiences. Hospital based experiences should improve the resident's ability to coordinate patient care with other health care professionals.
