Residents practice clinical dentistry at the pediatric dentistry clinic located in the Houston Medical Center Building. This is a new, state-of-the art clinic which opened September 1994. The clinic includes laboratory area available for fabrication of space maintainers and two quiet rooms. Outside rotations during the first year include pediatric medicine and general anesthesia, each of one (1) month duration. Each first-year resident is teamed with a second-year resident for emergency coverage and general anesthesia cases at Hermann Hospital, the university affiliate hospital.
During the second year, residents spend additional time on outside rotations in Hemophilia Clinic, Cleft Palate Clinic and at the University of Texas School of Dentistry and Predoctoral Clinic. When the second-year resident is not on an outside rotation, he/she participates in the outpatient pediatric dentistry clinic located in the Houston Medical Center Building.
