Deadline approaching for CDC Public Health Residency Program

September 05, 2017 Atlanta — Dentists who have completed at least one academic year of advanced training in public health and obtained a graduate degree can apply for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Dental Public Health Residency Program.

Residents develop skills in methods of scientific inquiry and research, emphasizing oral epidemiology and population-based efforts to prevent oral diseases and promote oral health. At the end of the program, which can last 12 months (full-time) or 24 months (part-time), residents receive a certificate of completion that meets education requirements established by the American Board of Dental Public Health for specialty certification.

Applications must be postmarked by Oct. 20 for consideration. Formal training begins in July 2018. For more information, visit or email the Dental Public Health Residency Program director at
