The Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program is the responsibility of the Section of Adult Dentistry, Division of Operative Dentistry. It is a one or two year program that gives the recent dental graduate an opportunity to expand their comprehensive care and patient management skills as well as gain experience in advanced restorative techniques. Program completion and certification in AEGD I qualify the candidate for licensure in New York State.
