International Preceptorship in General Dentistry, Predoctoral

GSDM’s Preceptorship in Predoctoral General Dentistry familiarizes internationally trained dentists with predoctoral clinical and didactic education in the United States as well as the U.S. group practice structure. The program furthers participants’ dental education by combining didactic lectures and hands-on preclinical seminars with clinical observations. As a culminating experience, participants will prepare a case presentation assignment based on a false patient profile.
