General Dentistry Residency Programs

Endodontics Program
This program is designed to increase the resident's knowledge of endodontics, both clinical and didactic, in this one-year post doctoral dental internship.

Oral Surgery Program
General Dentistry Residents are expected to perform oral surgical procedures in the Dental Clinic and Emergency Room and they are encouraged to participate in Oral and Maxillofacial operating room cases.

Orthodontic Program
In this program, orthodontic treatment is limited to minor tooth movement. Orthodontic treatment involving full banding will not be done. Patient consultation will be done by the general dentistry resident with an orthodontist attending. All subsequent treatment will be carried out by the resident under the supervision of an orthodontist.

Pediatric Dentistry Program
In this program, residents will be treating outpatients under the age of 18. Each general practice resident takes a two week rotation in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center under the preceptorship of the pediatric dentistry faculty from the University of Connecticut Health Center.

Periodontal Program
The objectives of this program are to expose the general dental resident to periodontics from a diagnostic and therapeutic perspective, and to instill the need to integrate periodontics into generalized treatment planning.

Prosthodontics Program
In this program, the resident will treat patients requiring fixed and removable prostheses. The treatment plan developed by the resident will be carried out under the guidance of a prosthodontist.

Special Programs
Each general practice resident is guaranteed a minimum of twenty units of crown and bridge and two dental implant cases without regards to patient's financial status at the completion of his or her training program.
