Greetings and thank you for considering Geisinger’s Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program! For over 20 years, full-time OMS providers have been an integral part of Geisinger, offering complex, full-scope services to northeast and central Pennsylvania while building a solid foundation for the development of a comprehensive residency program. Established and accredited in 2016, the four-year, single-degree OMS program has been overwhelmingly successful and growing exponentially. In collaboration with the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, residents now have the opportunity to complete a two-year, post-residency MD program.

With our compassionate, dedicated and board-certified faculty, our residents experience the full breadth of practice that oral & maxillofacial surgery has to offer. Additional faculty are actively being recruited to support our impressive program expansion and patient volumes at three regional trauma centers. As a healthcare system, Geisinger eagerly provides the resources and cutting-edge technology necessary to support our endeavors.

Within our program, there is a strong sense of pride for the impact our residents and graduates have on our patients, community and specialty. We greatly appreciate your interest and look forward to meeting you!

Paul Covello, DDS, MD
