  • SDM PE 845: Pain Control and Sedation
    Didactic instruction in advanced concepts and theories in anxiety control and sedation using enteral and parenteral routes to achieve minimal and moderate sedation. Residents will also be required to complete Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
  • SDM PE 850: Clinical IV Sedation
    Twenty cases of IV sedation will be completed under supervision of faculty. Residents will be given the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and manual skills in moderate sedation. This will include starting an IV, titrating drugs, and monitoring O2, CO2 levels using capnography.

  • SDM PE 855: Advanced Surgical Topics in Periodontology
    This course will be a seminar format with lively discussion and class participation. Advanced surgical cases will be presented and discussed.
  • SDM PE 856: Advanced Surgical Topics in Periodontology
    This course will be a seminar format with lively discussion and class participation. Advanced surgical cases will be presented and discussed.
  • SDM PE 860: Essential Epidemiology in Periodontal Research
    This course will introduce students to the principles of epidemiology, as applied to the specific characteristics of periodontal research. Since the periodontal health is closely related to several important systematic conditions, this course will pay close attention to systematic diseases and inflammation in reference to periodontal health.
  • SDM PE 861: Randomized Trial Design and Methodology in Periodontal Research
    This course will introduce the students to principles and design of randomized clinical trials (RCTs) with special reference to periodontal research. Since periodontal health is closely related to several important systematic conditions, this course will focus in the designing of the trials to minimize confounding by systematic factors. This course will also cover topics such as choice of experimental design, choice of controls, sample size determination, methods of randomization, adverse event monitoring
  • SDM PE 862: Fundamentals of Regression Analyses in Periodontal Research
    This course will introduce students to the principles of biostatistics as well as regression analyses as applied to the specific characteristics of periodontal research.
  • SDM PE 865: Integrating Digital Dentistry in Treatment Planning and Complex Restorations
    This course will explore the use of digital based scanning tools to enhance the evaluation, diagnosis, planning and production phases of advanced restorative dentistry. Digital oral/facial scans merged with 3D CBCT reformatted images and dental/periodontal surface scans can provide the clinician with an integrated 3D visualization of anatomy and pathology which is not possible with standard clinical observation and radiographic technique.
  • SDM PE 911: Clinical Periodontology
