Community Service


We live and work in Lancaster County and as oral healthcare professionals; we accept the challenge to care for the needs of the residents of our community. Lancaster General Hospital embraces the commitment to the underserved and in so doing has introduced the new General Practice Residency Program.

The program seeks those dentists who realize their careers can only be fulfilled by a program where the uncommon is the norm and the link between medicine and oral health is recognized and the team approach to patient care is practiced. Our resident doctors were chosen for their record of service to the underserved.

Our patients live in the city, suburbs, and rural areas of the county and present with a plethora of medical and dental conditions. Our residents in the program are grateful for the opportunity to learn, become better dentists, and provide patient care in a recognized center of excellence.
