What is the mission of your training site?
To improve the health and welfare of our community through inclusive and responsive health services and the sustainable renewal of an inspired, competent workforce that is privileged to serve.
What types of dental services can I expect to perform?
We provide comprehensive care for our patients, encompassing a full scope of general dentistry. This includes but is not limited to emergency dental care, composite and amalgam restorations, crown and bridge work, simple and surgical extractions, partial and complete dentures, endodontics (including molars), and pediatric dentistry. We have full-time hygienists and our dentists perform hygiene exams regularly.
What types of technologies can I expect to use?
Our dental clinics are newly furnished with chairs and state-of-the-art equipment. Additionally, our sites are equipped with digital radiography and charts, rotary endodontic systems, and soft tissue lasers. We are working to incorporate digital impressions and milling machines.
Driving Better Health is a mobile medical unit that has two exams rooms used to provide dental care or medical exams. Residents, oftentimes, work out of the mobile medical unit to enable them to experience another environment where they can perform dental services that bring dental and health care to the community.
What is the patient population?
Our focus is to continue to meet the healthcare needs of the most vulnerable in our community, including those facing food insecurity, homelessness, poverty and access to education. We accept all insurances and see patients of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.
What is life like outside of the training site?
We’re training new doctors in a community where you can make an impact and build a life. Come grow with us and see why The Wright Center is the WRIGHT Choice for your future. I ❤️ NEPA
