Dental Residency Program
Tomorrow's Greatest Dentists Training Here Today
The Dental Center at Kingsbrook has a full, comprehensive family dental
service that caters to maintaining the optimum dental health of all members
of the diverse communities that we serve.
The general population includes both adults and children. The treatment
plans consist of routine check-ups, root canal therapy, crown and bridge
work, oral surgery, implants, and both full and partial dentures.
This GPR Program gives the Dental Residents experience in treating both
the general population, as well as medically-compromised patients that
reside at an in-hospital and nursing home setting. As a result, Dental
Residents will have the opportunity to work very closely with physicians.
They will be able to gain confidence in treating these patients, as well
as providing the necessary dental care to medically-compromised patients
on various medications.
Accessible, Experienced Attending Physicians
Dr. Berger, the Chairman/Director of the Dental Department, also serves
as the implant specialist. He works closely with the residents on their
implant cases. Dr. Drukartz, the Clinical Coordinator/Associate Director
has been at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center for more than 20 years. He
is a very skilled, patient, and an approachable Attending. Residents are
able to interact with him to discuss cases and treatment plans. As an
on-site Attending, he is able to provide hands-on clinical assistance
with challenging procedures.
The office is run as a private practice with friendly office management
and staff. Advantages of this setting include a comfortable working environment
with very convenient working hours. Dr. Berger and Dr. Drukartz are very
considerate of personal needs and matters.
Previous Dental Residents have gained both experience and confidence in
all aspects of General Dentistry. They have benefited from the experience
and wisdom of the on-site and available Attending.
