NYS Resident Requirements

The Department must also receive, directly from the residency program director, verification of completion of an approved residency program accredited for teaching purposes by an acceptable national accrediting body. You should confirm with your residency program director that the residency program is participating in this route to licensure.

If you participate in a residency program in New York State, you must obtain a limited permit to practice within the residency program.

You may complete a residency program in either a clinical specialty or in general dentistry.

Specialty Clinical Dental Residency Program

The dental resident applicant must complete a clinical specialty residency program in one or more of the following specialty areas:

  • Endodontics;
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology;
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology;
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery;
  • Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics;
  • Pediatric Dentistry;
  • Periodontics or Prosthodontics. 

If the specialty residency program is not in one of these specialty areas, 50% of the program completed by the resident must include clinical training in one or more of these specialty areas or general dentistry to meet New York State requirements. 

General Dentistry Residency Program

The dental resident applicant must complete a general dentistry program. During the residency program, the dental resident applicant must complete 9 dental procedures independently and to generally accepted professional standards:

  • 2 full crowns;
  • 2 endodontically treated teeth (root canals);
  • 4 restorations (2 anterior, 2 posterior);
  • 1 periodontal case (Type 1).
