    Hey everyone,
    So I am currently a rising D4, and looking to do a GPR in NYC. A lot of the forums here regarding GPR's are rather outdated, and would like to get some perspective of people that have recently been through the process. What I am looking to get out of GPR is to walk out feeling confident enough to tackle most cases that come into my office. I would like a program with strong exposure to all facets of dentistry. Implants is highly preferred but not a strong "must have". Since it is nearly impossible to shadow these places, I would love it if someone can give me the pros/cons of the following programs, as well as any additional info that you might think is important:

    1. NYU Lutheran (now Langone)
    2. Jamaica
    3. Stony Brook
    4. Kings County
    5. NYP Queens
    6. NYP Methodist
    7. Bronx Lebanon (now BronxCare)
    8. Maimonidies
    9. Montefiore

    I would also appreciate it if you think I left out a great program!

    Thanks in advance everyone!

      montefiore - as a gp, you dont much. My friends went there as last minute and hated it. Its not like you look for more and you can do more, but its just simply not in the culture to give cases to GP when other programs, omfs, is so strong and yield more money.

        They’re all pretty much the same - public hospital - Medicaid patients - so so experience. Only do it if you need to work in NY after

        The only programs in NY that are worth it are VA programs - where patients have unlimited funding.
