allows us to increase the number of pediatric dentistry residents
from 16 to 20.
U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has awarded
NYUCD a three-year $400,000 grant to increase access to dental care
for underserved children by expanding the number of pediatric dentistry
residents at NYUCD.
According to Dr. Linda
R. Rosenberg, Associate Professor and Chairperson of the Department
of Pediatric Dentistry and the grant’s principal investigator,
“This project allows us to increase the number of pediatric
dentistry residents from 16 to 20. More importantly, it has the
goal of increasing the dental workforce with providers who have
achieved multiculturalism competence, increased proficiency in meeting
the needs of medically-compromised pediatric patients, and increased
skill in communicating with other health care professionals.”
