Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program
This program at Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is one of the largest ADA accredited programs in the country. Located in New York City, the Department's residents treat a culturally, economically, and ethnically diverse population as they rotate through each of the six hospitals served by the Department of Dentistry. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery deals with people who suffer accidental injuries, infections, cysts and tumors, developmental deformities, as well as dysfunctional and degenerative disorders. It is concerned with the relief of pain and the reconstruction and restoration of important functions involving breathing, chewing, swallowing and speech.
Montefiore participates in the PASS program for resident selection. Applications should follow the procedures prescribed by the PASS board. For more information, please contact Dr. Richard Kraut at 718-920-4984.
Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program
The program in Pediatric Dentistry is hospital based and offers an unusually broad exposure to all relevant components of Pediatric Dentistry. In addition to extensive management of primary care patients, the residents care for the developmentally disabled and medically compromised. Pediatric Dental Residents actively participate in the Center for Craniofacial Disorders. The Pediatric Dental Residents receive extensive exposure to all aspects of pediatric dental care, including: minor and major dental trauma, sedation techniques, orthodontics and operation room experience. The primary emphasis through all of these activities is to integrate clinical experience with didactic knowledge.
Montefiore Medical Center participates in both the PASS program for resident selection and the National Match Program. Although participation in the PASS program is not required, it is strongly encouraged. For more information, please contact Ms. Christine Clarke at 718-920-5996.
Orthodontic Residency Program
The Orthodontic Residents work within departmental dental centers situated within seven major hospital/research facilities throughout the Bronx. In addition to providing high quality orthodontic care for the local community, residents are involved in the treatment of more than 150 orthognathic surgery patients annually, as well as many of the more than 5,000 Craniofacial Center patients. The emphasis in each of these areas is a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care. Weekly orthognathic conferences educate the orthodontic resident in the art of coordinating diagnosis techniques not often included in orthodontic education, such as nasopharyngoscopy, video-fluoroscopy, advanced imaging as well as genetic counseling.
Montefiore participates in the National Match Program for Orthodontic Residency. For more information, please contact Ms. Cheri Williams at 718-920-5997.
