Please click to begin your application.

We very recently received affirmative notification from the ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation regarding our application to increase the size of the AEGD program from 3 to 5 residents each year.

Due to the late timing of their decision, these newly created positions will be available in the Post-Match process.

The Department of Dentistry of Chesapeake Health Care serves as the clinical training site for accredited AEGD and Pediatric Dentistry programs, offering patient services in a 24 operatory facility in Princess Anne and a new 6 operatory facility in Salisbury.

Chesapeake Health Care is a Federally Qualified Health Center with clinical programs in Dentistry, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Mental Health and Obstetrics and Gynecology. The Department of Dentistry currently supports 13 residents and 9 full time faculty members, having experienced significant growth in recent years.

Serving the three lower counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the AEGD program provides comprehensive dental services to patients in the poorest of Maryland’s counties. In addition to offering a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic oral health services to the general population, Chesapeake Health Care has pioneered an innovative program focusing on expectant mothers that offers great benefit to patients and to the dental staff, providing care to motivated patients eager to complete their treatment plans.

AEGD Residents provide patient care under direct supervision of faculty, whose time is dedicated to teaching and supervision. Within the context of the educational program residents receive significant experience in restorative dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics and prosthetic dentistry in preparation for a clinical career in General Dental Practice or to explore and pursue areas of special interest.

In addition to NYU Langone Dental Department’s formal educational program, the Chesapeake Health Care Department of Dentistry maintains an in-house curriculum that includes treatment planning sessions, case presentations and guest lecturers from other institutions, including through video teleconferencing. AEGD residents also interact with internationally trained dentists enrolled in Preceptorship programs.

The AEGD program residents also actively participate in the newly established Division of Continuing Education, which has brought the first program of regular continuing education dental offerings to Maryland’s Eastern Shore, including hands-on participation courses.

More information about the NYU Langone Department of Dentistry, as well as information about our site may be obtained at the NYU Langone web site.
