Thank you for your interest in the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program of Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine.
The Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program is a fully accredited one year program that offers an optional second year. The program is designed to refine and enhance the resident's clinical skills and scientific knowledge while bridging the gap between dental school and general dental practice. The program provides the resident with broad clinical experience in all phases of general dentistry in addition to implant dentistry and IV sedation technique. The faculty and staff at SIU are dedicated to help every resident reach his/her maximum potential.
As you browse through our website, I hope that you examine how the AEGD program at SIU has positioned itself to meet the exciting challenges of the future. I believe that you will begin to appreciate why this program is one of the premiere AEGD Programs in the country.
