You will receive intensive training in the following areas:

In this residency you will have training in:
- Dental materials
- Dental laboratory techniques
- Orofacial pain
- Medical oncology
- Oral diagnosis
- Otorhinolaryngologic surgery

These rotations will emphasize clinical and radiographic interpretation, the care of surgical patients and interdisciplinary treatment for patients undergoing radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
