Prospective Students

Clinical Rotations

Clinical training in the periodontics program focuses on the diagnosis and therapy of diseases and conditions affecting the tooth-supporting tissues, and on implant surgery. Your clinical experiences will include the full spectrum of periodontal treatment modalities:

  • conventional non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy
  • periodontal plastic surgery
  • soft and hard tissue regenerative procedures
  • advanced surgical techniques (guided bone regeneration, block grafts, sinus augmentation)
  • implant surgery

Students provide comprehensive periodontal health care in the advanced education clinics at the College of Dentistry. You will completely manage the oral health needs of your assigned patients by:

  • integrating periodontal therapy with other clinical disciplines
  • practicing conscious sedation measures for pain control, to include inhalation analgesia and intravenous sedation
  • managing emergencies
