Postdoctoral Prosthodontics Program
The Dental Specialty Center is the newest clinic at RSDM and is home to the Postgraduate Prosthodontics program. The center, built with a total cost of $13 million, features leading-edge treatment based on a collaborative design that houses four specialties fostering a team approach to treatment. The 24,000-square-foot center includes 80 new dental operatories and seven surgical suites for teaching advanced surgical implantology, periodontal surgery, endodontic surgery, prosthodontics and maxillofacial prosthetics. Other features at the center include digital radiography, electronic health records system, and cutting-edge classroom technology. The 36-month postgraduate program in prosthodontics was begun in 1978 to provide postdoctoral education for dentists wishing to prepare for specialized practice. Clinical expertise is strongly emphasized and the program prepares the student for successful attainment of Board Certification. The program offers a Certificate in Prosthodontics and an optional Master of Dental Science degree.
