Fully accredited by the American Dental Association, the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) Residency is affiliated with School of Health & Medical Sciences at Seton Hall University and New York Medical College. It is a four-year program that offers high-quality educational guidance and broad hands-on experience at several sites:
- St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center;
- The Veteran's Administration Center;
- Monmouth Medical Center; and
- Mountainside Hospital.
The sponsoring institution, St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center is a state designated trauma center, housing the Children's Hospital at St. Joseph's, which is home to the Regional Craniofacial Center. At the Veterans Administration Medical Center, second-year residents place implants, perform dentoalveolar and pre-prosthetic surgery, and gain valuable exposure to head-and-neck oncology. Additional experience in ambulatory oral surgery is obtained at Mountainside while the Monmouth experience focuses on reconstructive and cosmetic maxillofacial surgery. When off-service, senior residents operate with craniofacial and oculoplastic surgeons, as well as with a fellowship-trained cosmetic OMS. The breadth, scope and volume of clinical activity ensure that residents are well trained in the full scope of OMS. Interested residents may pursue the MD option through New York Medical College where they may be candidates for advanced standing upon successful completion of OMS training.
