About the Program

This is a 24-month program beginning July 1 with five new positions offered each year. The program is a combined Hospital and University-based certificate program. The Stony Brook University Advanced Education Program in Pediatric Dentistry emphasizes resident training in the multidisciplinary comprehensive dental care approach and management of infants, children, and adolescents in addition to dental care for patients with developmental disabilities. Medically compromised patients are managed using an interdisciplinary healthcare-team approach.

The core curriculum offers the knowledge and experience required in the medical and dental management of the pediatric and special needs patient.
