Collaborating with medical and dental teams to treat children, adults and communities. As an acute, specialty, primary and behavioral health care provider, the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) provides comprehensive medical services, including general dental, pediatric dental and dental publich health services, to Alaska Native and American Indian people living in Alaska. The center includes a 150-bed hospital, as well as a full range of medical specialties, primary care services and labs. The hospital also works in close partnership with Alaska’s rural health facilities to support a broad range of health care and related services. Operated by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium and Southcentral Foundation, the facility opened in 1997 and serves as the referral center for the Alaska Area. ANMC is also home to NYU Langone Dental Medicine's Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry Program (PEDS), and Dental Public Health (DPH) Residency Programs. The NYU Langone Dental Medicine PEDS program places a large emphasis on pediatric sedation, pediatric general anesthesia, and pediatric medicine - with residents completing more case than required by CODA guidelines. Graduates of the program are trained to be an integral part of the medical team and hospital environment. Additional experiences are provided in hospital dentistry, sedation, interceptive orthodontics, special patient care, speech pathology, ethics and advocacy. Additional rotations include craniofacial genetics, diabetes clinic, pediatric cardiology and oncology clinic. This site provides unique challenges in treatment planning due to the geographic challenges that exist in the state of Alaska. The site is composed of three treatment clinics with a total of 23 chairs within the hospital, 27 chairs on campus in an outpatient facility that houses orthodontics and adult dental services in a satellite clinic in Wasilla, Alaska. We have two orthodontists, four oral surgeons, two endodontists, three prothodontists, and a large staff of general dentists. Residents of the NYU Langone Dental Medicine DPH program become experienced in developing, evaluating and improving the dental care delivery system(s) of the surrounding communities. The site contains an Advanced General Practice Residency Program. This growing academic medical campus provides a wide array of unique experiences in a unique environment. Residents are given experiences in oral conscious sedation utilizing four different regimens. The residents complete sedation and general anesthesia cases well beyond the number required by CODA accreditation standards. All three clinics are equipped with state-of-the-art Adec equipment, paperless charting with Eaglesoft, and digital radiography in all units and in the dental-specific operating rooms which contain high-volume evacuation and LED lighting. There is greater than a 1:1 resident-to-assistant ratio with an outstanding dental assistant training program. Pediatric-specific dental assistants are available for all procedures.
