Program Overview

The Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program at the Augusta University is a one year program fulfilling the requirements for advanced training in general dentistry as outlined by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association leading to a certificate.  The program is designed to provide clinical and didactic experience at the postdoctoral level in all areas of dentistry with an emphasis on treatment planning complex cases, treating medically complex patients, and training in advanced techniques such as rotary endodontics, implants, and IV sedation.

Residents receive an advanced program of didactic and clinical training in implant, fixed, and removable prosthodontics with the support of highly trained laboratory technicians; instruction in the management of medically compromised patients, geriatric patients, phobic patients, and didactic and clinical experience in the implementation of IV sedation techniques.

The majority of time is spent providing comprehensive patient care in state of the art operatories staffed by dental assistants and clerks simulating a small group dental practice. The year of training includes clinical rotations in emergency medicine, pedodontics and anesthesiology.
