Advanced Education Programs

The College of Dentistry offers Advanced Education Programs that lead to proficiency in major areas of clinical study and satisfy the educational requirements for specialization and/or specialty board certification. Advanced education certificate programs are offered in the clinical specialties of endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, and prosthodontics. Program length is one to six years, depending on the area of specialization. Applicants should have previously demonstrated excellent achievements at an accredited dental school.

The Advanced Education Programs at New York University College of Dentistry build on the knowledge base of a predoctoral education and go on to broaden the understanding of the biomedical sciences and their application to clinical dentistry. The social issues related to the general health and well being of the public are also presented as part of the advanced education curriculum. The educational program also establishes high standards of ethics and professional conduct while fostering appreciation for our multicultural society. Our students are exposed to pedagogical theory and have the opportunity to teach while they are learning.

A characteristic of all of our programs is an interdisciplinary approach to patient care. Our large and diverse patient pool provides a unique resource for students. Our clinics use the latest technology used in patient care. Our exceptional programs exist in an environment that is characterized by a supportive and nurturing faculty. The NYUCD faculty includes world-class clinicians and researchers in every specialty who are committed to the welfare of our students and patients.
