Apple Tree Dental Announces a New AEGD Residency Program

If you are looking for a dental residency opportunity, please consider applying for Apple Tree Dental’s new Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program which launched in July 2017  and is located in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Dr. Teresa Johnson

In collaboration with New York University Langone Medical Center, this fully accredited AEGD residency program offers residents a one-year program based at Apple Tree’s Mounds View Center for Dental Health. Under the direction of Dr. Teresa Johnson and Dr. Erin Guttormson, residents will gain valuable experiences with a large team of clinicians dedicated to serving patients with a wide variety of needs. In addition to general dentistry, the Mounds View Center also has an Advanced Dentistry Clinic where IV sedation procedures are provided in collaboration with nurse anesthetists.


Dr. Erin Guttormson

Inspired by the Mayo Clinic’s nonprofit group practice model, Apple Tree has received national recognition for its pioneering approach to integrating dental care into overall health and well-being through collaborative partnerships with more than 130 community organizations serving patients of all ages.

Graduates of this program will become more confident practitioners with bright futures in private practice, community clinics, and public health settings, or may go on to specialty training or to careers in academic dentistry.
