Greenwood Health Center
Residents participate at the Greenwood Health Center Dental Clinic on a rotating basis throughout the entire year. They alternate days during the week with rotations at the University Hospital and Northwest Community Health Center Dental Clinic.
Remodeled in 2011, the twelve-chair Greenwood Health Center Dental Clinic is part of the University of Utah primary care facility that includes medical groups of internal medicine, family practice, ob/gyn and pediatrics. The clinic also houses an on-site pharmacy, optical center, lab, dietician and physical therapy department. Dental residents see six to eight patients a day by appointment. The clinic has appropriate support staff. Dental education attending faculty members are present at each clinic session. The Greenwood Health Center Dental Clinic hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday–Friday, except Wednesday afternoon when the clinic is closed.
Additional resident requirements:
Residents are required to attend didactic seminars presented by Dental Education Faculty members on Wednesday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. These seminars are held in the Dental Education Conference Room on the University of Utah Campus.
Residents will work together to present table clinic research at the Utah Dental Association annual meeting in February.
