Advanced Education in General Dentistry

AEGD Seminole bannerSeminole, FL – University Partnership Center

This 12-month Advanced Education Program is designed to provide advanced clinical and didactic training in disciplines of general dentistry beyond the training received in dental school.

The program is located in a facility at St. Petersburg College in Seminole, Florida that houses 17 operatories and is designed to model the private practice setting. This facility is a satellite clinic for the College of Dentistry. All the clinical disciplines in dentistry are covered. Patient treatment is frequently complex and challenging, with multiple opportunities for experience in dental implants, periodontal surgery, advanced prosthetics, oral surgery, orthodontics, and sedation.

The faculty, which includes specialists from all the dental disciplines and general dentists, provide continuous coverage in the clinic. Seminars, literature reviews, case presentations, and treatment planning seminars are part of the educational program. Practice management is an integral part of the program.

This program will provide a Certificate of Completion in Advanced Dental Education in General Dentistry.

A stipend is available. No tuition is required.
