Robert Carter
Dental General Practice Residency
Program Overview from Dr. Robert S. Carter

The dental general practice residency at East University offers a one-year program for recent dental graduates to prepare for private practice or for further graduate study in a dental specialty area. The program has been accredited since 1980, providing opportunities for four residents each year for supervised clinical experience in dental treatment, especially as it relates to systemic disease.

A primary objective of the residency program is to provide optimal dental care to both medically compromised and healthy patients, both inpatient and outpatient. In conjunction with this care, you will have learning opportunities in all disciplines of dentistry and several disciplines of medicine. These experiences will enable you to refine and expand your skills in dentistry as you develop additional skills in lifelong learning. Because of the practice setting, our residency will also prepare you for a smoother transition to private practice. If you choose to specialize, our program will prepare you to enter specialty training with greater self-confidence.

For information on how to apply, visit our application process page. I would be pleased to talk with you further about our program. Call or send an email if you have questions or would like to request an application.
