About NYU Langone Dental Medicine AEGD Residency

The NYU Langone Dental Medicine Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program is a one-year (2nd-year optional) postdoctoral training program that is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association, and provides recent dental school graduates with advanced clinical training and experiences as well as a didactic curriculum comprised predominantly of online course modules. Residents graduate well-positioned to launch solo practices, work in various types of dental practice offices, pursue advanced specialty programs or continue working in community health centers or public health dentistry. Graduates are equipped with the confidence, knowledge and skills to face any oral health challenge. A significant number of graduates stay on to work in the community health center where they trained during residency.


  • Residents train in clinical training sites that are approved by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) and provide a training environment exposing the residents to modern facilities equipped with the armamentarium to deliver advanced care to patients.
    Clinical curriculum is focused on solidifying general dentistry skills and increasing the confidence of future practitioners.


  • Residents provide comprehensive oral health care to many vulnerable populations including: children, adults, elderly, as well as, populations with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and a variety of medically complex conditions.


  • Residents receive clinical experience in most dentistry disciplines: preventive, restorative, endodontics, periodontics, removable and fixed prosthodontics, hard and soft tissue surgery, sedation techniques, pain and trauma management and dental public health.
