The University of Pittsburgh's Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program was established in 1989. The program is fully accredited and begins on July 1st of each year. The program is one year in length and enrolls up to three students. Since the program's initiation, 1 - 3 stipend residents have been enrolled each year into the program. We prefer to have students from diverse backgrounds. For the 2013-14 program year, residents are from University of California, San Francisco, University of Southern California, and the University of Pittsburgh.

There are no weekend rotations, but a 24-hour on call schedule is maintained for the School of Dental Medicine and the Implant Center. The SDM has Tuesday evening hours.  The program follows the School of Dental Medicine's academic calendar. There is approximately a two week break at the end of December; and approximately 10 holidays during the year. In addition, there are 10 paid days off during the one year residency.

In conjunction with the School's Department of Anesthesiology, residents treat patients using intravenous sedation, nitrous oxide and/or general anesthesia in the Center for Patients with Special Needs. As one component of this segment, residents receive the instruction required for eligibility to apply for an Anesthesia Restricted Permit II, necessary to administer nitrous oxide in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

If you have further questions regarding our program, please do not hesitate to contact our office or the Office of Residency Education.
