UDHS dentists include general practitioners as well as periodontists, prosthodontists, orthodontists, pediatric dentists, maxillofacial prosthodontists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Maxillofacial prosthodontists and surgeons may treat patients either in the UDHS office within the School of Dental Medicine, or several days per week at the nearby Montefiore dental clinic.

The position requires at least two years of experience, preferably including at least one year in a surgical setting, and EFDA certification is preferred. UDHS staff are employees of the University of Pittsburgh and receive competitive salaries and attractive fringe benefits, including excellent health insurance, a generously matched retirement plan, paid time off and tuition assistance.
