Periodontics Residency Program

The residency in periodontics is a three-year certificate program. Each resident is exposed to all periodontal diagnostics and therapies and is expected to be competent in all phases of clinical periodontal care. This includes competency in implant therapy and the provision of moderate parenteral sedation.  All residents are encouraged to participate in the American Academy of Periodontology board certification process, and to graduate as board-certified periodontist. A master's degree option is available to residents in the Department of Periodontics. Three residents are accepted annually for the three-year program. Learn More >
