Bristol Park Dental selected for community-based externships
BRISTOL — The University of New England College of Dental Medicine (UNE CDM) has announced that Bristol Park Dental of Bristol has been selected as a community-based externship site. Students in the inaugural graduating class at the UNE CDM are completing the final component of their program: participation in the college’s first community-based externships around New England.
Spanning the final year of dental school, the Community-Based Education program introduces students to clinical practice in areas with limited access to healthcare. This year, the class of 2017 participated in a total of 85 separate 12-week rotations throughout 33 designated sites primarily in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Senior Rebecca Filan is currently completing her training at Bristol Park Dental, where she is supervised by James Cossaart, D.D.S., adjunct assistant professor in the College of Dental Medicine. Students Ben Higgins and Alex Kerbaugh completed their training at the site earlier this year.
