Dental Implants Clinic
In the Implant Prosthodontics Clinic, senior dental students are actively involved in the treatment planning and restoration of osseointegrated dental implants. Students are able to observe the surgical implant placement procedure of their patients in either the Graduate Surgery Clinic or Periodontics Clinic. From this patient interaction, the main objective is for the upperclassmen student to develop skills for treatment planning dental implants. Although, only fourth year students receive official credit for this clinical course, third year students also treat their patients as needed in this clinic. Patient treatment focuses on 1-3 units of fixed implant restorations and mandibular implant overdentures.
