Resident instruction

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Department of Pediatric Dentistry has suspended all in-person externship opportunities until further notice. In lieu of an in person experience, the Department of Pediatric Dentistry is offering virtual externship opportunities for applicants to the program to learn more about our residency program in Pediatric Dentistry. Applicants who are particularly interested in applying to the program are strongly encouraged to sign up. 

During this virtual experience, interested applicants will have an opportunity to hear from the program director as well as the current residents in the program. There will be three virtual externship dates this fall:

Wednesday, September 7 from 6-7 p.m. 

Tuesday, September 13 from 6-7 p.m.

Wednesday, September 14 from 1-2 p.m.

Applicants can only sign up for ONE externship opportunity. Please make sure you complete the sign up form with your contact information.

Thank you so much for your interest in our program and we look forward to seeing you soon! Further inquiries about the virtual externship should be directed to:

Program description

The Pediatric Dental Extern program is designed for those highly motivated students who plan to apply to a pediatric dental residency and want more intensive exposure to the specialty beyond what is traditionally incorporated in undergraduate dental education. The externship program is typically for students who are at the end of their third year of dental school, although practicing dentists may apply as well.
