You will gain knowledge, experience, and expertise in patient care and practice management utilizing the most advanced technologies in dentistry.
Our program will comprehensively train residents to the GPR training guidelines set forth by the Council on Dental Accreditation as well as include advanced and comprehensive training in dental implantology, posterior molar endodontics, third molar removal, periodontal surgery, oral oncology, management of patients at the medical/dental interface, nasoalvelar molding for cleft lip and palate, and IV sedation which meets most state licensing requirements for certification.
The residents will be trained to deliver dental care in multiple settings such as the hospital-based outpatient adult and pediatric clinics, inpatient bedside consultations, operating room, long-term care facilities and community service experiences such as Mission of Mercy events.
Additional experience will be gained in teaching medical students in the oral health/oral medicine curriculum at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.
