Additionally, we have a 2 year ADA accredited Dental Anesthesia program. All of the residencies work together in a team approach providing comprehensive care and in-patient coverage. Jacobi Medical Center also maintains the only approved Dental Public Health Residency Training Program in the New York City Area. This affords the residents the opportunity to gain experience in community dentistry programs as well.

Located on Pelham Parkway,across the street from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the Jacobi Medical Center serves the community residents in this urban landscaped area of the Bronx. The population is mixed lower and middle class with a variety of dental insurance plans.

General practice residents function as Associates of the Attendings and provide appropriate care to their assigned patients. The program is designed to help the resident find diverse clinical experience and grow in confidence while under the guidance of experienced practitioners.
