This program is a full-time, one-year clinical and didactic course of study in prosthodontics and
esthetics offered to dentists from countries other than the United States who seek to improve
their clinical skills and knowledge in this discipline. This program is designed for both didactic
and clinical participation in the area of removable prosthodontics, fi xed prosthodontics, occlusion
and implant prosthodontics.
Upon successful completion of the Advanced Program in Prosthodontics, program participants
will have a thorough knowledge of both removable and fi xed prosthodontics, as well as implant
and occlusion procedures.
Participants treat a variety of patients under the close guidance of a diverse and experienced
faculty comprised of top practitioners in the fi eld of prosthodontics.
This program consists of patient care/clinical experiences and a variety of lectures, discussion
groups and seminars covering topics such as fi xed prosthodontics, removable prosthodontics,
occlusion, operative dentistry and implant dentistry. A supervised review of dental literature
is designed to elevate the students’ knowledge in prosthodontics, stimulate interest in research
projects and encourage the discussion of new techniques. A mandatory technique course is offered
weekly that allows students the opportunity to practice different prosthodontic procedures
on dental mannequins. There are opportunities to participate in elective experiences such as
teaching, research and society meetings. The strength of the program is an abundance of patient
cases in all aspects of prosthodontics.
