The UVM Medical Center Dental and Oral Care will be the new home of our four dental residents starting August 2014.

Our General Practice residency has been in Vermont for more than 50 years, housed in several locations, but finally has a state-of-the-art teaching clinic in South Burlington.

We are unique in Vermont in hosting four dentists who have finished all dental school training, but who have elected to spend an extra year learning more about dentistry from a comprehensive perspective.

Meet our new dentist-residents!

Meet our new dentist-residents!

Meet our residents:

  • Jenny Citrin, DMD, is from Florida and graduated from Tufts Dental School. She is interested in teaching oral health and developed an innovative program for this during dental school using a mobile app.
  • Mose Snyder, DMD, graduated from University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and has an interesting background in various careers before landing in dentistry. He is currently in the hospital rotation with our faculty doing oral surgery.
  • Jason Condro, DDS, went to New York University School of Dentistry and started interning with one of our faculty members, Dr. Brian Shuman, when he was at St. Lawrence College. Jason is doing our rural rotation at the Health Center in Plainfield, VT.
  • Puneet Natt, DDS, comes to us from University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry after practicing as a dentist in India first. Her interest is Pediatric Dentistry. She is married to a hospitalist at the UVM Medical Center.

We have two residents in the clinic at any one time, and we treat all aspects of a patient’s dental and medical needs. Examples of this are patients undergoing cancer treatment who need fluoride trays for decreased saliva flow, or heart patients who need teeth extracted prior to valve replacement due to periodontal disease.

We have talented faculty from private practice who are teaching in our designated teaching operatory with the latest dental technology. We offer same-day appointments for emergency patients, and comprehensive care for long term and ongoing cases. We will cover all aspects of dentistry, including dentures, fillings, cosmetic dental work, oral surgery, root canals, pediatric care, and gum surgery.

Each of our residents does six months of training in this clinic, as well as operating room, anesthesia, emergency department, and rural rotations.  Many of our residents have elected to stay and practice in Vermont after this residency; having it part of the UVM Medical Center is now a win for our dentists and our patients.

Janet Thomason Miccolo, DDS is the program director for Dental Residency at the University of Vermont Medical Center.
