Northwest Dental Residency offers a one-year residency beginning July 1 and continuing through June 30. You will be part of busy, challenging practices that serve people living in the Washington state communities of Yakima, Toppenish and Grandview.
You will work with an energetic faculty consisting of gene ral-practice dentists and specialists, gaining experience in endodontics, periodontics, oral medicine, pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, sedation techniques, restorative dentistry and oral surgery.
Our residents are exposed to a variety of patients, including those who are medically compromised, phobic patients and individuals with developmental disabilities.
Along with practicing in an established dental clinic, each resident will spend a rotation in an HIV+/AIDS clinic and in a facility caring for developmentally delayed adults. You’ll also have a one-week rotation of pediatric dentistry, as well as a rotation at Yakima's Union Gospel Mission, providing dental care to some of those in our community with the greatest need. Plus, you will attend regular didactic sessions that focus on building your practice management skills.
