International Developmental Dentistry Mini-Residency

Developed in affiliation with the Cambridge Institute for Global Health, the Lee Specialty Clinic’s International Developmental Dentistry Mini-Residency is an internationally-recognized, intensive, one-week Continuing Education immersion program, for dentists from around the world who have graduated from a BDS, DMD, or DDS program, and who wish to obtain additional, focused training in Developmental Dentistry. Based at the Lee Specialty Clinic in Louisville, Kentucky, the one-week program is designed to provide a clinical immersion experience in the interdisciplinary care of dental patients with IDD.

The curriculum features a mixture of clinical training and interdisciplinary case discussions. The majority of clinical training takes place at the Lee Specialty Clinic, where the resident will work as an important member of an interdisciplinary clinical team comprised of neurologists, internists, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, dental hygienists, behavior analysts and an array of therapists and ancillary personnel.

The mini-residency also features a five-hour didactic lecture component, which provides the theoretical and conceptual basis for an organized approach to quality patient care.

The Lee Specialty Clinic has been designated by the Kentucky Board of Dentistry as an independent teaching facility.
