The Advanced Specialty Education Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology at Stony Brook University, School of Dental Medicine aims to provide post-doctoral education in oral and maxillofacial radiology that is committed to comprehensively train residents to become proficient oral and maxillofacial radiologists, competent teachers who are familiar with the foundations of research methodology, and who are prepared to contribute their skills and knowledge in the service of the profession. The interrelation with other medical/dental clinical specialties is also emphasized.

The 24-month Graduate Medical Education (GME) funded post-doctoral level program in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology provides the resident with comprehensive knowledge of the technique and interpretation of conventional and advanced imaging modalities in dentistry. The curriculum includes didactic and clinical instruction in the fundamentals of image acquisition and interpretation of conventional and advanced radiographic exams in the maxillofacial region as well as providing the residents with multidisciplinary approach in the diagnosis and treatment planning for patients with malignancy, syndromic conditions and complicated maxillofacial developmental abnormalities.

Emphasis is placed on developing radiographic interpretative and diagnostic skills based on scientific literature with clinical and pathophysiological correlation. Additionally, all residents are expected to perform a research project culminating in presentation of their project at a national or international meeting and/or publication in a peer reviewed journal.

All residents are encouraged to plan on pursuing certification by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology. Residents will participate in mock board exams provided by the program, in order to become prepared for their board exam. Residents are eligible to challenge the certifying examination of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology upon completion of the 24-month training program.
