Dental Residency Program Goals and Objectives

  • Provide residents with the opportunity to plan, develop and complete a program which satisfies the criteria established by the American Board of Dental Public Health.
  • Expose residents to experiences that allow the application of the theory and principles of public health practice to actual situations which develop in a community.
  • Ensure that residents acquire experience with a variety of programs and methods utilized in dental public health.
  • Upon completion of the program, residents should be able to demonstrate competency in the skills and knowledge that are essential for a dentist who practices public health as his/her specialty.
