Our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program is based at Allegheny General Hospital.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery, as defined by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, is the specialty of dentistry which includes the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial regions.
It is the goal of our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program to provide the best possible learning environment, resources, instruction and clinical exposure necessary for each resident to acquire the broad and solid knowledge base and well-developed clinical skills necessary to practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgical specialty.
Toward meeting this goal, the program maintains four important objectives:
The 4-year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program is an accredited, advanced dental specialty program designed to prepare residents for practice and consultation in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS), possible subspecialty training, and academic leadership within the specialty.
Prerequisites for the OMFS Residency Program are as follows:
Applicants should refer to the ADEA PASS website and click on OMFS for program details and application requirements.
