This three-year program, the first fully accredited hospital-based orthodontic program in the United States, provides an exceptional opportunity for residents to follow complex cases through completion of treatment. In a fully supervised clinical practice, residents treat an array of malocclusions and other dento-facial irregularities in a diverse patient population.
Einstein Medical Center offers the region's largest hospital-based dental education program. In a challenging clinical and academic environment, postdoctoral programs in general practice, endodontics and orthodontics prepare residents for leadership as clinicians and mentors. The general practice residency program offers a one-year program with an optional second, while the endodontic program is two years. The orthodontic program, which accepts residents every other year, is three academic years. (Academic Year = 52 weeks = 2080 clock hours)
The Maxwell S. Fogel Department of Dental Medicine shares equal status with Einstein Medical Center's other clinical departments. More than 40 faculty members, including specialists in every field of dental medicine, guide residents in clinical, didactic and research areas. The favorable faculty-resident ratio allows for an enhanced learning experience through personal guidance.
The department's longstanding academic associations with the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and Temple University School of Dentistry broaden and enrich the residents' educational experiences. Dental students from the University of Pennsylvania complete rotations at Einstein Medical Center, and the three institutions freely share information and resources.
From one resident and a single operatory in 1926, the department has expanded to 19 residents and 21 operatories in a modern 8,000 square-foot facility in the medical center's outpatient area. Einstein Medical Center's emergency unit has dental delivery equipment, including a panoramic X-ray unit, offering dental residents the opportunity to care for dental emergencies in the emergency unit.
In addition, dental residents provide dental treatment for patients under general anesthesia in the Medical Center's major operating suite.
In the clinical area, the department's Osseointegration Implant Program, which employs several contemporary systems, reflects Einstein's commitment to innovation in dental medicine. This was the first hospital-based outpatient program of its kind in Philadelphia.
Most recently, major clinical renovations occurred including placement of new dental delivery systems in all 3 programs areas. Also, all dental imaging systems were converted to digital technology including the placement of a 3D Cone Beam unit utilized by the 3 residency programs. Residents present table clinics, poster displays and research papers at regional and national meetings.
Major endowments add to the level of academic and clinical excellence at Einstein Medical Center. The Maxwell S. Fogel Department of Dental Medicine, the I.B. Bender Division of Endodontics, the Phillip S. Kanev Division of Restorative Dentistry and the Jack Magill Orthodontic Clinical Facility have been named in recognition of these individuals.
The department also sponsors four endowed conferences: the Morris Kelner Memorial Conference on Pediatric Dentistry, the Steven P. Chartan Memorial Lecture, and the Irwin J. Freedman Memorial Lecture on Ethics and Excellence in Dentistry (co-sponsored by the Southern Dental Society of New Jersey); and the Maxwell S. and Anna K. Fogel Memorial Conference on Dental Medicine and Resident Graduation.
