GPR resident performing clinical phases of general dentistry utilizing a full-time assistant.The Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program at the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (CTVHCS), Temple, Texas, selects two to three one year residents annually. All residency programs at the CTVHCS in medicine and dentistry are under the Texas A&M School of Medicine Dean’s Committee. The AEGD program is fully accredited by the American Dental Association. The distinct advantage of the program is lack of specialties to diminish the general practice residents' experiences.

The Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Center is located in Temple, a city of nearly 60,000, in central Texas. It is 60 miles north of Austin and 35 miles south of Waco, along Interstate 35, and approximately centered in a triangle formed by Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas-Ft. Worth.

The Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Center is part of the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (CTVHCS) with sites located in both Waco and Austin, Texas. Waco is primarily a psychiatric facility and Austin is an outpatient clinic. All residency training is at the Temple site. It is a 269 bed general medical and surgical center with a 408 bed Domiciliary and a 272 bed Nursing Home Care Unit. The Temple campus of the Texas A&M Medical School is located at the Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Center and Scott and White Hospital and Clinic.

The small town atmosphere allows residents to have a close relationship with faculty and consultants, as well as, other dental and medical residents. Our center has many ancillary facilities including an excellent medical library, medical media production service, and research department.
