The Maxillofacial Prosthetics Fellowship at Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, New York, is a 12-month postgraduate certificate program devoted to maxillofacial prosthetics and oral oncology. The fellowship offers intensive training in intraoral and extraoral maxillofacial prosthetics and treatment of patients afflicted by various conditions including, but not limited to: head and neck cancer, congenital malformations, trauma-related deformities.

Oral Oncology Maxillofacial

Erie County Medical Center’s program is unique because it is a Level 1 Adult Trauma hospital with an ambulatory head and neck cancer service, allowing for ample experience in all facets of complex maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation. The program has dedicated staff and excellent rapport with other medical and surgical specialties. While the emphasis of the training is on clinical practice, the program also includes an extensive didactic program and research opportunities. Training is enhanced by a modern and well-equipped facility in the Center for Oncology Care. This is an outpatient clinic of Erie County Medical Center, which enables fellows to have close interactions with faculty, interns, and residents of other disciplines.  This new facility features digital radiography (including a CBCT) and a designated in-house dental laboratory outfitted to make various maxillofacial prostheses.

This Maxillofacial Fellowship has been planned in accordance with the guidelines for postdoctoral education of the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation. Upon completion of the program, the Fellow receives a certificate in maxillofacial prosthetics.​
