Overview

Program Overview

The Prosthodontics curriculum at Boston University includes didactic and clinical instruction in complete dentures, removable partial dentures, fixed prosthodontics, implant dentistry (including implant surgery), geriatrics, temporomandibular disorders, and maxillofacial prosthodontics. The didactic background and the clinical and laboratory skills of these areas of prosthodontics are stressed.

Emphasis is placed on the periodontal integrity of the patient and the supportive therapy of all other disciplines in achieving total patient care. This integration is achieved through interdisciplinary seminars with the other specialties and through coordinated treatment planning.

The intensive and systematized library reading assignments and literature review seminars are an important aspect of the curriculum. They are designed to acquaint the resident with the principal facets of the prosthodontic discipline, evidence-based healthcare, and methods of critically reviewing the dental literature.

This program follows the standards established by the Commission on Dental Accreditation for advanced educational programs in prosthodontics and the multidisciplinary scope of the specialty certificate examination of the American Board of Prosthodontics.
