General Practice Dentistry Residency

The General Dentistry Residency Program at Hartford Hospital offers a fully-accredited one-year residency in all phases of dentistry.

In addition to comprehensive training in all disciplines of dentistry, the dental resident will participate in restorative dentistry and oral surgical procedures in the operating room.

The residents have off-service rotations in Hartford Hospital's departments of Anesthesiology (80 hours) and Internal Medicine (80 hours). The residents are required to be on-call on assigned nights to treat dental emergencies and dental trauma.

Hartford Hospital's Department of Dentistry is open to the general public and all patients are seen by appointment.
