NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine

Family HealthCare Network is a training site for the New York University / Langone Dental Medicine Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program, based out of Brooklyn, New York. Established in 1988, NYU/L’s AEGD program turns accomplished dental school graduates into advanced clinicians while residents concurrently provide oral healthcare to vulnerable populations. A unique and exceptional program in concept and design, the AEGD (PGY-1 12 Months, second year optional) Program at NYU/L advances a resident’s skills in general dentistry well beyond traditional school-based or clinic-only based programs. The AEGD Program is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) of the American Dental Association (ADA) and its affiliated clinical training sites are recognized as approved clinical training sites by CODA. In this unique program, dental residents gain experience in a group practice setting at a busy community health center, providing oral health care to their patients while working alongside a team of general dentists, assistants, physicians, and other health care professionals. NYU/L has pioneered the innovative concept of a community health center-based postdoctoral dental residency program and is now the largest of its kind. The dental residency program builds upon more than twenty years of dental care offered by Family HealthCare Network. For over 7 years we have had a very successful program, turning out graduates who are well-rounded and confident dentists, ready to step into the next phase of their career.
