Under the direction of Dr. Teresa Johnson and Dr. Erin Guttormson, residents see a wide variety of patients of all ages, including those with special health care needs and access to care challenges. Residents gain experience in all aspects of general dentistry, including restorative, fixed and removal prosthodontics, implant restoration, endodontics (including molars), and oral surgery (including third molar extractions). Residents also treat patients under IV sedation in conjunction with faculty members. 

Residents benefit from the mentoring received by several experienced, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic faculty dentists. This program also includes a strong didactic component developed by NYU Langone Health.
