The Department of Periodontology focuses primarily on the didactic and clinical education of periodontology residents. Our goal is to educate residents to perform proficiently in the discipline of Periodontics, be critical thinkers and stay life long learners. Our objectives are to provide residents with an understanding of the theoretical basis for, and the basic sciences involved in, the maintenance of health and/or the treatment of diseases of the periodontium as well as providing them with the most up to date clinical training in all aspects of periodontology and surgical implant dentistry. To expand their knowledge of the interactions of medical and dental discipline and broaden their professional judgment to include long term management of the periodontal patient.

We offer three different programs in Periodontology: CAGS, MSD, and DScD. Residents can also apply to do a combined program, in which they graduate with either a CAGS and an MSD or a CAGS and a DScD. For more details on these programs, please click here.
