The Periodontics Preceptorship Program is specifically designed for a recent dental school graduate preferably from a Prosthodontics Specialty Program in the United States who would like to expand his/her knowledge in Periodontics and Dental Implantology. The applicant must demonstrate a strong desire to learn state-of-the-art techniques, investigate current scientific literature and become competent in managing a broad range of periodontal procedures as well as dental implants. Over the course of one year, seminars with other graduate students will be attended and clinical procedures will be performed. Although emphasis is placed on the clinical aspects of Periodontics and Implantology, the participant will also have the opportunity to extensively explore the periodontal and dental implant literature providing a more evidence-based clinical approach to patient care.
The participant will be able to integrate these skills immediately into a dental practice, or apply for additional training in an Advanced Education Program in Periodontics.
This preceptorship is a 12 month non-degree course of study offered by the Department of Periodontics. A non-academic certificate is awarded to the participant upon successful completion of this program. This Preceptorship will be limited to one student per year, dependent upon the applicant’s professional credentials and clinical space available.
