Dental Residency Program Snapshot
Four dental residents perform comprehensive dental care in
our dental clinic, using the latest dental materials and
techniques. Residents have exposure to complex oral surgery cases
performed in the operating room. Taking emergency calls allows
dental residents to become proficient in treating any dental
emergency. While here, residents have the opportunity to interact with
general dentists and specialists in the community by working on cases together and through
attending dental meetings and lectures.
One proud fact of our dental residency program is that
approximately one half of former dental residents have stayed,
and are now practicing in Vermont. The training dental residents
receive from The University of Vermont and UVM Medical Center
allows them to leave here confident and better prepared to treat
their dental patients in private practice or to excel in a
specialty training program.
