Dental Students

HealthPoint provides clinical training and mentorship for fourth-year ASDOH dental student externs. These students join our HealthPoint dental teams for four to six weeks to gain valuable knowledge in diagnosis and treatment planning, interprofessional care, operative dentistry, oral surgery and other general dental services.

Dental Residents

HealthPoint offers a one-year dental residency in Advanced General Dentistry.  This program advances a resident’s skills in general dentistry well-beyond traditional school-based or clinic-only based programs.  

To hone skills, residents are guided and mentored by on-site faculty while providing dental care to ethnically-diverse and vulnerable populations.  The training and experience in comprehensive multidisciplinary oral health care is at a level of skill and complexity beyond that accomplished in pre-doctoral training.  

We emphasize clinical examination, diagnosis, treatment planning, as well as learning comprehensive care that addresses the patient's needs, desires, and limitations. Our patients may include those with very complex medical histories, and pediatric or geriatric medical complications.


Dental Assistant Externs

HealthPoint partners with dental schools from across the region to offer externships that combine classroom theory with practical experience gained in the workplace. If you’re interested in doing an externship with HealthPoint, please contact LaTanda Madden (
