Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Maryland is comprised of two programs--the one-year course and the two-year AEGD certificate/MS/PhD degree option.

The one-year Advanced General Dentistry Program is designed to improve and refine residents' scientific knowledge and clinical skills in the practice of general dentistry. It prepares the resident to assess the patient's general health status relative to anticipated dental treatment and to plan and deliver that treatment.

The two-year AEGD program incorporates all the goals and objectives of the one-year program and is designed to expand the residents' educational opportunities.
