The Boston University Implant fellowship programs are well-structured, unbiased training program in both the surgical and restorative aspects of implant dentistry. Fellows completing these programs will have a good understanding of the biology necessary to successfully place and maintain dental implants, address complications both in the surgical and restorative arenas, and provide their patients with comprehensive treatments.

One-year Program

The 12 month-long program is specifically designed to improve the fellows’ surgical skills through flap design, bone grafting, soft tissue grafting techniques and socket preservation procedures.

Both programs will offer integration of digital dentistry with single-unit cases to complex fully edentulous cases.
