Just for a reference.....We've done over 200 (in addition to noses, blephs, midiface, neck dissections yada yada yada)
So what, they put in a ton of implants and shuck thirds all day. Thats where the money is and thats the majority of what you'll be doing in "the real world" anyway. Besides, they actually have a life while in residency. Sounds to me like it is an ideal residency. The fact that they only take one/year makes it prob. the most competitive spot on the market in my opinion:cool:

I tend to agree with you. But they did have 60 or something like that for their implant number, which in my opinion for a teeth and titanium residency is on the weak side. There are some places that do well over 100 with also doing all the trauma, so who knows. Thoughts???

Is pee-wee herman going out and busting mandibles so that he can get practice fixing them?

In my opinion, Gundersen is definitely one of the most desirable OMS residencies out there(atleast from what I remember during my interviews). It is a very private practice based program. Their trauma numbers are low but overall number of major cases was more than adequate.
