Tufts Univ. and partners offer new residency program

The Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, in partnership with the Maine Medical Center and Community Dental, has launched a new program to offer advanced postgraduate training in general dentistry and promote oral health in Massachusetts and Maine.

The one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program will offer clinical training in dental care for people with complex medical and oral health needs, such as those with HIV/AIDS, the elderly, homeless, victims of domestic violence, substance abusers, and people with developmental disabilities.

The new program will be based at Tufts' dental school in Boston; the Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME; and five Community Dental sites in southern Maine.

Six residents, all graduates of Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) accredited degree programs in the U.S. and Canada, will participate in the AEGD program. Three residents will be based at Tufts and three residents will be based at Maine Medical Center and Community Dental.

The program will begin July 1, 2014, pending final accreditation by the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation.
