About NYU Langone Dental Medicine AEGD Residency 

The advanced educational program in general dentistry (A.E.G.D.) provides advanced training beyond the level of predoctoral education in clinical dentistry and applied basic and behavioral sciences. During this program, students refine the skills necessary for the general dentist to provide comprehensive patient care for all population groups.

This is a planned, sequential postdoctoral training program that is specifically designed to meet the needs of graduates who want to enhance their skills as general practitioners. The program is a supplement to the predoctoral curriculum but is not a required component of that educational sequence.

Under the tutelage of a dental staff led by Dr. Todd Shatkin, residents see a wide variety of patients of all ages, including those with special health care needs and access to care challenges. They will gain experience in all aspects of general dentistry, including restorative, fixed and removal prosthodontics, implant restoration, endodontics (including molars), and oral surgery (including third molar extractions). They will also treat patients under IV sedation in conjunction with faculty members. Individualized mentoring is provided by experienced, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic faculty dentists. This program also includes a strong didactic component developed by NYU Langone Health.
