VISN 12 - VA Great Lakes Health Care System
A New Frontier of Dental Postgraduate Education
The Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, WI and the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center in Chicago, IL are the educational sponsors of our postdoctoral dental residency training programs accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association.
Our vision is to create unified and collaborative postgraduate dental residency programs, considered to be the premier residency destinations for dental graduates seeking general dental or specialty dental residency programs.
Residents who complete our programs gain the real-world experiences and gain a sense of certainty and confidence in how to treat a full spectrum of patients and their unique oral medical challenges. Unlike any other dental residency programs, our VA dental programs expose residents to a broad range of complex conditions and medically compromised patients.
Our esteemed alumni continue to distinguish themselves in practices and dental associations.
A Mission to Serve
With a continuing commitment to the highest standards of care, we believe that our primary goals are to provide high quality advanced training to recent dental graduates while serving our country’s Veterans. Through values reflecting compassion, dignity, integrity, and service, our residency programs affirm our dedication to care for Veterans.
