Dental Residency Program Snapshot
We accept four residents into the dental residency program per year. Our dental residents perform comprehensive dental care in our dental clinic, using the latest dental materials and techniques. Residents have exposure to complex oral surgery cases performed in the operating room. Taking emergency calls allows dental residents to become proficient in treating any dental emergency. While here, residents have the chance to interact with general dentists and specialists in the community through attending dental meetings and lectures held by dentists for residents, or by working on cases with them.
One proud fact of our dental residency program is that approximately one third of former dental residents have stayed, and are now practicing in Vermont. The training dental residents receive from The University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen allows them to leave here confident and better prepared to treat their dental patients in private practice or to excel in a specialty training program.
