Bucks County Mini-Residency Program

We are committed to providing the highest quality of care for our patients and it is through continuing education that we can stay on top of the latest developments. We provide a variety of educational opportunities for our referring offices through the Bucks County Mini-Residency Program. The primary emphasis of the study group is to provide the best in continuing education in Implant and Periodontal Dentistry. The Mini-Residency Program has been a forum for the introduction of state-of-the-art techniques and important updates on current methods.

The Mini-Residency Program is an accredited continuing education program for dental professionals including dentists, dental hygienists, assistants, administrative staff, and laboratory technicians. It was founded and is directed by Dr. Edward Marcus. The Mini-Residency Program is a study group consisting of a select group of outstanding dentists and dental specialists who join together in the pursuit of higher learning. Their goal is to keep their professional community in the forefront of dental technology while assuring their patients the most up-to-date treatment available.

In addition to education, the program focuses on building relationships with our members and their offices. These relationships improve treatment coordination between offices to make the patient education and treatment process the most effective.

The program generally consists of six sessions, beginning in October and concluding in May.
