Dr. George Hall recently began his appointment as director of the UNC School of Dentistry Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Program and also a clinical associate professor in the Department of Operative Dentistry.
“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to teach residents at the UNC Chapel Hill,” said Hall. “The excellent reputation of the UNC School of Dentistry is internationally known and I am thankful to be here.”
As the AEGD Program director, Hall’s primary responsibility will be to provide leadership and directorship for the AEGD program, including but not limited to instruction, clinical supervision, mentorship of residents, supervision of staff, as well as overall program development, coordination and compliance with CODA standards. Hall will also practice in the Dental Faculty Practice.
“Dr. Hall brings much enthusiasm, energy and significant clinical and administrative experience to our AEGD program,” said Dr. André Ritter, chair of the Department of Operative Dentistry. “We are confident he will also have a positive impact on other areas of our mission.”
Hall received his DMD from the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) School of Dentistry, which is now known as the Georgia Regents University College of Dental Medicine, in 1993. From 1993-2003, he served two communities in Georgia in private practice: Riverdale and Lawrenceville. Hall then completed his prosthodontics residency and a GPR program at MCG and was subsequently appointed to the faculty as an assistant professor in that institution from 2003-06. In 2006, he began an appointment at the VA Medical Center in Augusta, Ga., where he established an AEGD program while running a private practice. Most recently, Hall was a supervisor and prosthodontist at the Greenville VA Outpatient Clinic in South Carolina. Hall is a diplomat of both the American Board of Prosthodontics and the American Board of Oral Implantology. He served as a guest professor at MISR University (in Cairo, Egypt) from 2006-13, and since 2016 has served on the editorial review board of the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
