Welcome to the home page of the Department of Dental Medicine at New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York. As an academic department within a major health sciences institution, our primary focus is twofold: to provide quality clinical service within a graduate educational environment and to actively pursue scholarly activities in a collegial atmosphere with other health professionals, such as research, literary contributions, and grant endeavors.
With extensive clinical practice experience within both institutional and office-based practices, I as well as the entire faculty remain committed to the teaching of graduate dental trainees. We continue to afford our residents opportunities to develop skills while encouraging them to deliver quality care in a compassionate and respectful manner. Emphasis is placed on the provision of dental care within a total health care model. I strongly encourage and expect all our trainees to fully integrate into this medical/dental multi-disciplinary environment.
The department’s core as well as its success is founded on faculty and staff commitment, dedication, knowledge, and desire to support post graduate general dental practice and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
On behalf of the entire faculty, I personally invite you to explore our website and feel free to visit our department at New York Medical College and our clinical training sites.
