Dental General Practice Residency

The GPR is the only post-graduate dental education program at the Beth. Our GPR’s perform all of the specialty services, including oral & maxillofacial surgery. OMS sessions have scheduled OMS faculty (left) for direct resident supervision.Dental General Practice Residency

With a full time GPR Program Director and a dedicated group of over 50 voluntary part time faculty, clinic session coverage is excellent.
An extra Dental Attending (left) is scheduled to be present during every periodontal and endodontic surgery for 1:1 direct supervision of our GPR’s.

Interview Process

Applicants who are selected for an interview should plan on spending several hours with us on a Sunday in early December. Through a personal interview with several of the dental directors and one of the current dental residents, followed by time spent with other current dental residents and other staff members, the applicant can gain a realistic impression of the program which we offer.

Dental General Practice Residency at Newark Beth Israel

Each GPR Dental Resident personally performs full mouth restorative dentistry in the Operating Room for Special Needs patients. A Dental Attending (holding x-rays) is present during every O.R. case for 1:1 direct resident supervision.

Final selection of applicants is based on weighing the interview process, transcripts, letters of recommendation and other extracurricular factors. After the interviews, applicants chosen for acceptance into our GPR Program MUST pass National Boards, Part 2 and be awarded their dental diploma by their dental school in order to acquire a New Jersey State Board of Dentistry Hospital Dental Resident permit. This permit (or a dental license) is required by NJ State law.
