Dental Residency

Our educational program operates within a comprehensive health care system committed to delivering high quality medical and dental care to a wide range of patients including medically compromised outpatients as well as hospitalized inpatients. The VA is a national leader in providing advanced education to health care providers.

This program offers a year of opportunity to gain experience in treating a wide variety of patients including routine and advanced restorative procedures, endodontics, periodontics, oral surgery, implants, prosthodontics, and complex reconstructive cases. By working with experienced faculty and participating in the didactic activities on a daily basis, the resident will become proficient in clinical judgment, clinical skills and medical risk assessment. Two distinct advantages of the program here at VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System are the abundance and variety of clinical opportunities, and that finances are not a limiting factor in a patient’s treatment options.

The VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System now offers an optional 2nd year in our General Practice Residency in Dentistry, for more information please contact Dr. Deb DesRosiers, Program Director.
