In affiliation with New York University (NYU) Langone Dental Medicine Postdoctoral Residency Programs, Apple Tree Dental’s Fergus Falls Center for Dental Health will launch Minnesota’s first rural general dentistry residency program, beginning July 1, 2022.

The NYU Langone Dental Medicine AEGD Program at Fergus Falls will be Apple Tree’s second location to host the residency program, building on its successful Twin Cities site, which is now in its fifth year at the Mounds View Center for Dental Health.
