The Department of Clinical Dentistry invites application for a full-time tenure or clinical track position in the Section of Pediatric Dentistry at the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine (SIU SDM).

This position’s responsibilities include all aspects of didactic and clinical education in pediatric dentistry for both predoctoral students and postdoctoral Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residents. The Section of Pediatric Dentistry provides instruction, supervision and treatment in the Main Clinic of the SIU-SDM, the East St. Louis Clinic of the SIU-SDM, the Surgical Center in our Advanced Care Clinic, and at Alton Memorial Hospital. The candidate must be eligible for privileges at these facilities.

The ideal candidate will be comfortable in providing lectures in a pre-clinical setting and supervision and instruction in the care of a diverse pediatric patient population who present with varying degrees of challenges in their lives.
