Dental Oral Maxillofacial Surgery at LIJMC

Introduction

The Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Long Island Jewish Medical Center sponsors both a six-year MD integrated training program and a four year training program.  Both programs allow the resident to attain board eligibility in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The six-year curriculum also includes obtaining an MD degree and completion of one year as a general surgical resident, which qualifies the graduate for medical licensure in most states.

The programs provide a strong foundation in basic oral and maxillofacial surgery, including ambulatory anesthesia, dentoalveolar surgery and management of odontogenic infections. There is also extensive experience in tertiary surgical care, such as hard and soft tissue, oral and maxillofacial trauma, orthognathic, reconstructive and temporomandibular joint surgery.

Upon completion of the program, the trainees are prepared for entry into private practice, academic programs or fellowships.
