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 Pediatric Dentistry 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, residents provide sedation and general anesthesia care and are actively involved in school based Outreach programs.

Pediatric Dentistry 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, behavior management, space maintenance and minor tooth movement  in preparation for a clinical career in Pediatric 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 formal lectures, including through video teleconferencing. Pediatric Dental Residents also interact with internationally trained dentists enrolled in Preceptorship programs.

The Pediatric Dentistry 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.
