THE GENERAL PRACTICE DENTAL RESIDENCY PROGRAM AT PENINSULA HOSPITAL CENTER IS CURRENTLY INACTIVE.

Welcome to the new home of Peninsula Hospital's Dental Residency Program, online!

The General Practice Residency Program at Peninsula Hospital Center dates back to 1968 and has graduated almost 300 dental alumni now practicing throughout the United States and Canada.  The program is accredited by the Council on Dental Education.

 Applications for the academic year commencing July 1, 2013 may be submitted beginning August 1, 2012.  The resident census will be between 5 and 8 depending on the available pool of qualified applicants.  This twelve-month program is open to graduates of C.O.D.A. approved dental schools. The deadline for applications is January 10, 2013.


There are no dental specialty programs at Peninsula Hospital Center enabling our dental residents to manage the total treatment plan without patients being assigned to residents in dental specialty programs.  Residents manage the full spectrum of dental needs of our patients including restorative, prosthodontics, pedodontics, periodontics, oral surgery, endodontics, and implant placement and restoration. Residents will have extensive involvement in management of physically and mentally challenged children and adults in the operating room setting, as well as in the management of medically compromised patients.


The program includes three off-service rotations of a 2 or 3 weeks duration including Anesthesiology, Family Practice Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Surgery.  Residents participate in the LIJ/North Shore Oral Pathology Symposium Series, the Weil-Cornell N.Y. Institute of Clinical Oral Pathology Conferences in Manhattan,six full-day sessions of the Peninsula Hospital Dental Society, and the Resident Poster Events at both Greater New York and Greater Long Island annual dental meetings, where our presentations have often received awards.
