Courses

  • SDM PE 808: Periodontology Case Presentation/Treatment Planning
    Clinical case presentations by residents followed by discussion of the diagnosis, treatment planning, treatment, and outcomes, including alternatives of periodontal therapy and related dental disciplines. This course fosters understanding of clinical decision-making processes and complements individualized instruction that residents receive from faculty in the clinic. For postdoctoral residents in Years 2 & 3 (3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th sem). 2 cr/yr.
  • SDM PE 810: Implant Dentistry for the Dental Specialist
    The purpose of this course is to provide post-doctoral residents with didactic instruction in basic surgical principles and techniques and to prepare them for the surgical placement of implants in selected patients. The need for and use of CBCT scans in implant dentistry will be explained and thoroughly covered. Diagnosis of edentulous spaces and correction of such spaces using dental implants will be discussed, together with extensive multi-disciplinary approaches to treatment planning.
  • SDM PE 811: Clinical Implant Dentistry for the Dental Specialist - Simulation
    This will be a hands on instruction in basic surgical prinicples, including basic flap design, atraumatic flap reflection, preparation of osteotomies, insertion of dental implants on plastic models and or animals and suturing techniques both simple and complex.
  • SDM PE 812: Clinical Implant Dentistry for the Dental Specialist
    Once the residents have completed both the didactic and hands on simulation (PE 810 and PE 811) they will be supervised in the placement of implants. The instruction will begin with a review of sterile technique and infection control then proceed with implant surgical assisting. The resident and faculty will review case selection criteria to select appropriate cases for implant placement. The resident will work with periodontal faculty to complete CBCT scan ordering, CBCT scan evaluation, selection of proposed implant and a full review of the planned surgery. Post-operative instructions as well as post-operative complications will be addressed and discussed with the faculty.
