Current Concepts in American Dentistry
NYU College of Dentistry's Linhart Continuing Dental Education Program provides the administrative support for the "Current
Concepts in American Dentistry" international short-term continuing education program. These customized educational
opportunities are designed for international dental groups to provide a deeper knowledge and understanding of specific
areas of dentistry. Its teaching staff includes NYU College of Dentistry faculty, alumni and outstanding educators
from other institutions and private practice. Program topics and content are determined by the special needs of the
group in consultation with the Assistant Dean for Continuing Education.
The "Current Concepts in American Dentistry" program was established by New York University College of Dentistry in
1981 and now has over 3,000 graduates from 26 countries throughout the world. In addition to lecture, laboratory
sessions and clinical observations, participants are required to complete both a written topic report and two (2)
clinical cases in their private practices. All programs are in English. If necessary, a translator will be provided by
the group organizer. To maximize the learning experience, sessions in New York City are limited to a minimum of 20 and
a maximum of 50 participants. Individual dentists not part of a group may join an existing group on a space available
basis and with prior approval of the Assistant Dean for Continuing Education. Attendance in New York City is mandatory
in fulfilling the requirements for this program. Specific requirements include:
Six (6) sessions of which four (4) weeks of attendance must be at New York University College of Dentistry in New York
City. Also, two (2) additional sessions must be completed either at New York University College of Dentistry or any of
our international seminars scheduled at locations throughout the world. Participants are encouraged to complete the
program in a timely fashion not to exceed two (2) years.
Participants must complete a written report on a topic to be determined by New York University College of Dentistry.
Written reports must be typed. Recommended report length is 15-25 pages. A list of scientific references should be
included. The written report may be in English or another language if the participant is not able to communicate in
English. However, if English is not the language selected, a one-page summary in English must be included.
During the final week at New York University College of Dentistry, participants are required to document and formally
present two (2) clinical cases performed and completed in their private practices.
Upon successful completion of all program requirements, a certificate of achievement will be awarded by NYU Linhart Continuing
Dental Education Program. Please note this certificate program is not applicable to any formal degree program but is
an acknowledgement of the participants' commitment to professional growth and development. The final decision for
fulfilling the requirements is the responsibility of the Assistant Dean for Continuing Education.
