    Pediatric Dental Internship

    Length of program: 12 months

    Purpose: The purpose is to provide a deeper understanding of and exposure to pediatric dentistry within a clinical setting. Working along side of pediatric dental residents and attending, the intern will be exposed to all aspects of pediatric dentistry including but not limited to non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic behavior management, comprehensive dental care, and education/ community outreach for infants, children and adolescents with and without special health care needs.

    Duties: The internship program is to serve as an experience to allow a greater exposure to the specialty of pediatric dentistry. As an intern, you will be exposed to the daily clinical and non-clinical setting in which a pediatric dental resident will experience. Exposure to routine and more complex operative and restorative dentistry, advanced behavior management techniques, full oral exams, community outreach and a full didactic schedule.
