Prospective Students

Dental Anesthesiology Residency Program

The Ohio State University Medical Center offers a CODA-accredited 36 month anesthesiology residency for dentists which meets all the criteria for examination by the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology. Our program is unique in that, in addition to the extensive experience offered by other dental anesthesiology residencies, we offer a significant anesthesia experience for major office-based maxillofacial and cosmetic facial surgery.

This program prepares the dentist anesthesiologist to manage pain and anxiety in the most comprehensive manner for all dental/maxillofacial patients. At the conclusion of the program, the resident will be proficient in providing intubated and non-intubated general anesthesia, deep sedation and conscious sedation for diverse dental and maxillofacial surgical procedures performed on healthy and medically compromised patients, and to function in diverse patient care environments from tertiary level facilities through to private practice.

We also offer an externship in anesthesiology for dental students so they may explore this specialized area of dental practice prior to enrolling in a dental/maxillofacial anesthesiology residency training program.
