Developing essential dentistry skills

The general practice residency in dentistry at Prisma Health in Columbia is fully accredited by the American Dental Association. We are a one-year certificate program designed to develop essential clinical skills, attitudes, judgement and abilities related to the comprehensive practice of dentistry.

Our program is structured to provide training in the management of medically, physically and mentally compromised patients in a hospital environment. In addition to training in general dentistry, residents participate in rotations in anesthesia, emergency medicine and family medicine.

Video: About our program

Our program is clinically oriented, devoting time to areas of training where limited experience is available in dental school. About 75 percent of the resident's time is spent providing dental care – the remaining time is devoted to medical rotations and various nonclinical didactic experiences.
