They gain extensive practical experience, from providing care to a simulated patient in the first year; to providing direct patient care in patient-centered general practice teams in our Oral Health Center in the second and third years; to extending their clinical experience into the community during their fourth year, while working and living in communities throughout Northern New England and beyond.
