WVU to offer first pediatric dentistry residency program in West Virginia
22 Sep 2023
The West Virginia University School of Dentistry is adding to its advanced education programs, becoming the first institution in the state to offer a residency in pediatric dentistry.
The Department of Pediatric Dentistry recently received initial approval from the Commission on Dental Accreditation, allowing the first residents to enroll in the two-year program in July 2024.
“To be able to begin recruiting for our new pediatric dentistry residency program is essential for our goal as a land-grant institution to advance health care, specifically the oral health care of children, in West Virginia,” Dr. Dami Kim, residency program director, said.
