This graduate program is a thirty-six month, continuous course of study leading to both a certificate in Periodontics and a Master of Science in Dentistry degree. It is fully-accredited by the American Dental Association and meets all the clinical and didactic requirements of the American Board of Periodontology.

The general goals of the program are to train expert clinicians in this specialty, and/or to prepare individuals for an academic (research-teaching) career in Periodontics.

This postdoctoral program offers broad clinical experience and research training.

Completion and defense of a research thesis is one of the requirements of this program. Limited teaching experience is offered to the graduate student so that his/her exposure to clinical, research, and teaching facets of periodontics is complete.

All of the faculty of the Department of Periodontics involved in teaching graduate students in this program are educationally or board certified periodontists. Additional instruction within this program is by faculty members of the School of Dental Medicine and the School of Medicine. Because of the multiplicity of training programs our professors have completed, the student is exposed to diverse views of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of periodontal diseases. A brief initial review of basic aspects of periodontology introduces the new graduate student to the specialty training during the summer session. Extensive contact with practicing periodontists, sufficient exposure to hospital periodontal practice, and clinical training in dental implants are additional features of this program.
