General Practice Dentistry Residency at LIJMC

I am pleased to welcome you to the Long Island Jewish Medical Center, the Department of Dental Medicine's Residency Training Website. 

Our department has provided training for Dental Post-Graduate Training Programs for more than fifty years.  Currently we offer programs in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS), Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology (OP), Pediatric Dental Medicine (PD) and General Practice Dentistry (GP). There are over 130 individuals who make up the full-time and part-time voluntary faculty who serve as an educational resource for our training programs.

At Long Island Jewish Medical Center there are more than 500 medical residents enrolled in 45 approved ACGME training programs. There are many opportunities for inter-disciplinary experiences relative to patient care and education. The department has ongoing clinical and basic science research programs which provide opportunities for residents to pursue research in a mentored environment.

I invite you to browse through our website and, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the Program Directors or me at rburakof@lij.edu.
