With nine full time faculty members and some 35 voluntary faculty, the Division of Dentristry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a major academic-based program providing care that ranges from general dentistry to advanced surgical restorative and reconstructive procedures. The Division also offers two programs that are among only a few in the New York region: a dedicated children's dentistry facility and a dental center specializing in the care of patients with HIV disease.
We have recently completed a major renovation that has resulted in an expanded, state-of-the-art, 4,000 square foot facility that can better serve our patients, provide a more comfortable environment and enhance our residency education and traning experience.
