Program History

Our Advanced Education Program in General Dentistry (AEGD) was established in 1995. The program is a one-year program and is fully accredited by the American Dental Association. An optional second year is also available.

In July 1, 1995, the AEGD program started with four residents, a hygienist, four front desk staff, and dental assistants. Dr. Richard D. Bebermeyer was Director of the program and Dr. Sheila H. Koh was Assistant Director. Since the inception of this program, we have received three Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Title VII Residency Training Grants for improvement and expansion of the program. Our latest grant (2010-2015) in the amount of $1,265,463.00 made it possible for our residents to rotate through off-site clinics to provide care to the under-served population and receive training on cultural competency.
