Mission

The Master of Science in Dentistry and Certificate in Comprehensive Oral Implantology program values the diverse backgrounds and experiences of its residents and emphasizes the importance of professional ethics, scholarly inquiry, engaged learning opportunities and clinical competence in the practice of comprehensive oral implantology.

Our mission is the success of each resident as a self-assured, proficient comprehensive oral implantologist, who can practice in dynamic health care environments, provide leadership to promote and improve oral health, is committed to the advancement of implantology knowledge and practice, and aspires to life-long learning and achievement in advanced studies.

Licensure

Residents and residency site supervisors of the Jacksonville University Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Comprehensive Oral Implantology Program are required to be a licensed dentist in the state where their assigned Jacksonville University Academic Training Center (JUATC), also referred to as residency site, is located. Residents are encouraged to confirm their licensure status in the state where they will be conducting their residency comprehensive oral implantology training. Contact information for the state dental boards can be found at the American Dental Association.

The American Board of Dental Examiners, Inc. (ADEX) is a test development agency serving its member state dental boards in developing licensure examinations for dentistry professionals. The ADEX examination is accepted by the greatest number of states and jurisdictions that license Dental Professionals. Each state dental Board decides which examination they accept. Since those states make changes on a regular basis so each resident should check with the state that he/she/they wishes to seek a license from. 

For more information about the ADEX Examinations or registering to take an ADEX examination, please contact either of the ADEX Test Administration Organizations:

•       The Commission on Dental Competency Assessments (CDCA)

•       The Council of Interstate Testing Agencies, Inc. (CITA). 

Licensed dentists in Canada of accredited dental programs who have successfully completed the National Dental Examining Board of Canada's (NDEB) Certification Process are also being accepted for licensure in some US states. Jacksonville University advises licensed Canadian dentists to contact the state licensing board for more information.

Accreditation

The addition of the Comprehensive Oral Implantology program is pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. This is a normal step for any university that adds new programs. We anticipate receiving approval by July.
