Course Descriptions

YEAR 1 - Summer 1

Course description: This course develops a competency for medical evaluation techniques, medical history evaluation, pharmacological evaluation, systemic pathologies and how they can impact the occurrence of both short and long-term complications as they relate to dental implant therapies. Residents will be provided with algorithms to follow for creating prudent medical evaluations for when it is acceptable to treat patients and when treatment should not be undertaken. Residents will review patient-based medical-laboratory tests, values, and evaluation of medically compromised patients. An immersive history of physical diagnosis training provides residents with a unique experience to learn from several esteemed doctors.

Course Description: Aseptic and operating room sterility is one of the foundational principles for successful implant and regenerative surgery. Residents will be taught an in-depth knowledge and proficiency of sterilization techniques for surgical instrumentation, aseptic preparation of surgical rooms, patient, and operation theatre. These principles will be followed for every surgery performed within the residency program. The different surgical procedures taught will be presented to give residents an understanding of each, the reason for them, and their desired outcomes including potential complications.

Course description: The course includes introduction to sedation, levels of sedation, management of the medically compromised patient, airway management, patient monitoring, management of medical emergencies, advanced cardiac life support, venipuncture, and pharmacology leading to an understanding in conscious sedation. In addition to didactic instruction in moderate sedation, residents will practice scenarios in a simulation center, building competence in airway management of a compromised airway.

Course description: Residents will present cases to their peers and course instructors for analysis and discussion. An online forum for case presentation will provide a shared experience among the residents to develop clinical acumen.

Course description: Each resident will serve a caseload of patients or be involved in required hours of clinical care.

 

YEAR 1 - Fall 1

Course description: This course emphasizes the practical application of digital technology to provide laboratory support for the implant practice. This course teaches an understanding of the practical application of CAD/CAM technology to digitize the pre-surgical and restorative workflow. Residents will utilize three-dimensional imaging to design a variety of pre-operative models and surgical guides. This includes pre-operative stereolithic models, scan appliances, surgical guides, provisional and final restorations. Three dimensional printers will be used to fabricate these models and guides. Residents will scan, design, and mill provisional and final crown and bridge restorations.

Course description: This course teaches the acquisition and interpretation of two and three-dimensional radiographic images with an emphasis on the application to the practice of implant dentistry. This course teaches radiographic analysis of structures in the head and neck including normal and pathologic conditions of the teeth and supporting structures, paranasal sinuses, temporomandibular joints, maxilla, and mandible. Implant sites will be evaluated for prosthetic suitability, quantity and quality of available bone and proximity of vital structures. Virtual implant placement will be used when appropriate.

Course description: This course will provide historical perspectives on implantology, the goals of treatment and an understanding of the diagnostic and treatment modalities necessary to properly treat patients requiring implant dentistry. Residents will learn to meet the patient before meeting the mouth (determining the patient’s needs, desires, motivations, and goals), to provide an organized approach to examination, taking records, patient evaluation, obtain appropriate tests and radiographs and formulate a clinical decision-making tree (vertical treatment planning) and to recognize and incorporate an interdisciplinary approach to treatment planning.

Course description: Residents will present cases to their peers and course instructors for analysis and discussion. An online forum for case presentation will provide a shared experience among the residents to develop clinical acumen.

Course description: Each resident will serve a caseload of patients or be involved in required hours of clinical care.

 

YEAR 1 - Spring 1

Course description: This course will develop an in-depth understanding of the development, structure and role of the mandible and the maxilla and the physiology/repair of bone.

Course description: This course provides an in-depth understanding of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures will be demonstrated through various procedures.

Course description: A detailed study of the anatomic features including skin, fascia, muscle, blood supply, and nervous innervation will be presented as the foundation for proper surgical procedures.

Course description: This course teaches an in-depth comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment planning from initial medical and dental history, chief complaint, clinical examination, evaluation of natural teeth, indications and contraindications for dental implants, biomechanics, ideal number and location of dental implants, bone augmentation and soft tissue management. Extra-oral and intra-oral imaging/photography skills will be taught for proper documentation and treatment planning.

Course description: The course reviews levels of sedation, airway management, patient monitoring, management of medical emergencies, venipuncture, and pharmacology leading to an understanding in conscious sedation. Following the Moderate Sedation I course, the resident will receive sufficient clinical experience at an accredited clinical site to demonstrate competency in those techniques including clinical administration of conscious sedation on 20 patients.

Course Description: Residents will present cases to their peers and course instructors for analysis and discussion. An online forum for case presentation will provide a shared experience among the residents to develop clinical acumen.

Couse description: Each resident will serve a caseload of patients or be involved in required hours of clinical care.
