Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine is one of six schools/programs within the Health Sciences of Stony Brook Medicine, which includes the Schools of Dental Medicine, Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions, Social Welfare, and the Public Health Program. It is one of two state-supported dental schools in New York. With a pre-doctoral class size of just under 50 students, faculty are able to provide personalized instruction in a supportive environment throughout the entire four years of the program. The school is divided into six departments with CODA-accredited advanced education programs in Dental Anesthesiology, Endodontics, General Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics and Prosthodontics, as well as a fellowship in Special Needs Dental Care. The School of Dental Medicine shares basic science courses with the School of Medicine, thereby providing enhanced classroom instruction for pre-doctoral students; clinical rotations in the Stony Brook University Hospital (SBUH) for residents in advanced education programs; and inter-professional didactic and applied clinical experiences. Through its affiliation with Northwell Health, oral and maxillofacial surgery residents support the school’s predoctoral and residency programs, as well as emergency department coverage for SBUH.
The dental school’s clinical operations are located on Stony Brook’s main campus where students and faculty meet the oral healthcare needs of more than 17,000 unique patients of record, who account for over 80,000 patient visits each year. The General Practice, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and Pediatric Dentistry residency programs provide hospital-based dental care at SBUH. And through its outreach programs, the School of Dental Medicine offers dental care for underserved children in the region, as well as for adults in RAM (Remote Area Medical) locations in several northeast states and at an Indian Health Service site in South Dakota. The school also has satellite clinics at the university-affiliated State Veterans Home and on the Shinnecock Reservation, and it is the number one Medicaid dental provider in Suffolk County. In support of its global health mission, international opportunities for dental students exist in Chile, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Madagascar. The internal faculty practice is a community resource for comprehensive and inter-specialty dental care.
