The mission of the Advocate IMMC Dental Residency Program is to prepare residents for the practice of general dentistry through education and exposure to the broadest range of clinical and didactic experiences. The program emphasizes an evidence-based approach to dental treatment through critical review of the dental literature and treatment of underserved populations with limited access to dental care.
The GPR program provides dental graduates with advanced training in the diagnosis and delivery of dental treatment to healthy as well as medically compromised and developmentally disabled individuals. Residents will also learn more complex treatment in all phases of general dentistry. The program also trains residents to function effectively in various hospital rotations such as emergency medicine, anesthesia, and provide comprehensive dental treatment in the operating room. Residents will manage in-patient and same-day surgery cases from admission through discharge.
What makes our GPR program unique is the clinical experience and the evidence-based approach to patient care. Our residents treat all ages and ethnic groups which provides a wide range of clinical experiences. We also emphasize treatment of underserved populations. Many of these patients are treated in the dental clinic under IV sedation, or in the operating room under general anesthesia. With the 2 operatory fully equipped dental van that travels to areas of the city to treat children, adolescents, the indigent, and geriatric patients, the residents are able to treat a largely underserved population.
