The AACD Residency program, which launched in August 2018, will continue in 2019 with a group of nine preceptors and residents. The program will provide residents experience needed to jump-start a career in a cosmetic-oriented restorative dental practice.
During the two-year program, residents will complete a series of requirements from studying dental literature to implementing simple to complex restorative cases. Under their preceptor’s guidance, they will also gain knowledge and experience relating to all facets of an esthetic restorative dental practice including; effective practice management, diagnostic tools, and restorative considerations. “The AACD Residency program is designed to expose young dentists to the clinical and business side of a fee-for-service style private practice,” says Brian LeSage, DDS, FAACD.
Residents can expect to:
• Learn one-on-one from some of the most successful restorative dentists in the country.
• Observe, document, and execute a variety of cosmetic restorative solutions.
• Gain knowledge and experience related to all facets of an esthetic restorative dental practice including; effective practice management, diagnostic tools, and restorative considerations.
