Visit program website.

Summary Description

A joint program offering wide-range training in underserved communities. A unique program in concept and design, the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program places residents in community health center sites at the UCSF School of Dentistry campus or in Eureka, Pittsburg or East Palo Alto for comprehensive general dentistry training. Resident learners will gain practice experience in a large, group practice environment providing oral health care to patients of diverse age, race, and religious, ethnic and economic backgrounds while working alongside a team of general and specialist dentists, hygienists and assistants, physicians and other health care professionals. Resident learners will also have the opportunity to participate in activities related to public and community health, and advanced clinical experiences developed by the health center training sites.

The AEGD program is fully accredited by the American Dental Association. Upon successful completion of the program, resident learners can qualify for dental licensure using the postgraduate program pathway in those states that provide for this licensure option. Residents will also will be well-prepared for private practice, community or public health, specialty training or academic dentistry.

While the sites vary in size and patient demographics, they all offer the equipment, materials, resources and staff supports necessary to provide you with excellent advanced dentistry clinical training.

Residents will be assigned to one health center site for the entire year of training to provide a seamless clinical experience and to promote continuity of care for patients. Occasionally, clinical experience enhancements will be offered by rotation to other affiliated health center sites within a region. Traditionally, this program does not have on-call or extra-clinical and/or medical rotation requirements, but these experiences may be developed for resident learners at the discretion of the health center training site.
