Our community-based AEGD program focuses on broad-based dental experiences for residents, and compassionate care for our patients. We offer advanced training experiences in dental implants, implant site development, rotary endodontics, exodontia, and restorative work, as well as other aspects of general dentistry. We also provide IV sedation training, which is somewhat unique among AEGD programs. The online didactic education offered by Langone is exceptional, and this is augmented by weekly seminars and lectures on campus at the clinic.
Our clinic is well-equipped with 12 dental chairs, digital x-rays, digital patient records, and a CBCT 3-D scanner. We are well-staffed with 16 dental assistants, 1 nurse, and 2 laboratory technicians. Much of the training program will focus on planning and treating the dentally complex patient, especially as it involves dental implants and prosthetic reconstruction.
While it is unfortunate that so many patients in our community are in need of our low-cost dental services, our residents benefit from a very large patient base and high demand for dental services. This creates a rewarding experience for both patients and residents. While we are open to the larger community, we primarily treat recovering addicts enrolled in the Foundry Rescue Mission and Recovery Program. This is a faith-based, long-standing recovery program in the Birmingham area. Birmingham is a wonderful city with excellent outdoor activities, arts, restaurants, and social venues.
