campus of Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. Rhode Island Hospital is the

The dental center is home to Rhode Island Hospital’s Division of Dentistry and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, which is
affiliated with The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. There are
two resident positions available for the 12-month program.
Rotations and clinical experience provide diverse educational experiences. The
