Our Advanced Education Program in General Dentistry (AEGD) was established in 1995. The program is a one-year program and is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA). An optional second year is also available.
In July 1, 1995, the AEGD program started with four residents, a hygienist, four front desk staff, and dental assistants. Since the inception of this program, we have received three Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Title VII Residency Training Grants for improvement and expansion of the program. Our latest grant (2010-2015) in the amount of $1,265,463.00 made it possible for our residents to rotate through off-site clinics to provide care to the under-served population and receive training in cultural competency.

Our residents receive comprehensive care training with state of the art equipment in a modern facility. AEGD operates jointly with the GPR in a single site. Our clinic provides modern technology (dental laser, E4D/Planmeca CAD/CAM systems, Simplant virtual implant planning software, 6 different implant surgical and prosthetic systems, digital endodontics, endodontic microscope, digital denture, AxiUm and MiPACs, and state of the art evidence-based dental materials). Our residents receive excellent training under dedicated faculty members. There are 11 general dentists (1 board certified and 2 MAGDs), a prosthodontist (board certified), a periodontist, and an endodontist. There are plenty of complex patient pools in our residency program. Resident and assistant ratio is approximately 1:1 with 5 front desk/insurance staff members.
