Clinic time encompasses 75 percent of a resident’s total experience. Residents will provide comprehensive oral health care to patients toward case completion and have the opportunity to perform a variety of standard and advanced clinical procedures in all areas of dentistry. Residents will be assigned to one health center site for the entire year of training in order to promote continuity of care for the patients and continuity of experience for the resident. Community Health Care will offer clinical experience enhancements through on-call or extra clinical and/or medical rotations. The residents will follow regular clinic hours, which are four 10-hour days per week. The resident’s training schedule will be developed at the discretion of the health center training sites in collaboration with the resident and program administration.
Formal lectures in the form of didactics encompass 25 percent of the resident’s experience. Residents receive didactic instruction through a number of venues that include video teleconferencing technology, asynchronous web-based forums and lectures, and small group interactive sessions.
