Oral Surgery Program

General Dentistry residents are expected to perform a variety of oral surgical procedures in the Dental Clinic and are encouraged to participate on Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery operating room cases at both Yale New Haven Hospital and the Hospital of Saint Raphael. The educational objectives include proficiency in exodontia, oro-facial wound repair; treatment of acute and chronic infections of dental origin, the initial and definitive management of dentofacial trauma; surgical management of the medically compromised patient; and diagnosis and treatment of pathologic lesions of the soft and hard tissues of the mouth.
