  • SDM PE 520: Periodontology I
    This course presents the clinical and microscopic characteristics of the periodontium in healthy and diseased states. Diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes assessment are discussed.
  • SDM PE 521: Preclinical Periodontology
    This clinical course includes experience in performing diagnostic and preventive periodontal procedures with student partners.
  • SDM PE 530: Periodontology II

  • SDM PE 640: Clinical Periodontology II
    This clinical course emphasizes not only treatment of the patient's existing periodontal disease, but also maintenance of healthy periodontium through patient education.
  • SDM PE 670: Current Topics in Dentistry
    PE 670 is an elective course which will review current and classic literature of timely controversial dental topics. The course is a seminar format, and will be limited in size to promote discussion among the participants. The purpose of this course is to provide didactic instruction to the pre-doctoral student that teaches the student to critically evaluate published studies, and to compare and contrast the at times contradictory information provided in multiple studies on the same controversial topic. The course will encourage active learning utilizing critical thinking and active participation throughout each session. Students will be required to understand and critically evaluate study design, as well as any flaws or limitations that might bias results. This course provides students with the opportunities to acquire the knowledge and understanding necessary to integrate new information as lifelong learners, and critically assess the value of published studies, and how they might impact and alter rationale for treatment throughout their career.
  • SDM PE 764: Current Concepts in Periodontology
