About

The graduate program in Dentistry - Periodontics at the University of Michigan has three major objectives: teach the scientific basis of specialty practice; insure a high level of competence in the diagnosis of oral diseases and develop future leaders in the specialty of Periodontics and in the larger dental arena, with an emphasis on research and clinical aspects.

Overview

Clinical practice includes diagnosis of oral diseases, treatment planning and comprehensive therapy using current modalities of care, occlusal therapy, limited tooth movement, and conscious sedation. 

Patients with craniofacial dysfunction and patients requesting dental implant therapy will be evaluated and treated following a multidisciplinary protocol. The Dentistry - Periodontics is offered at the University of Michigan.

Program Description

In addition to a certificate in periodontics, courses leading to Master of Science and PhD degrees are offered through the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies. The PhD program is tailored to the individual student. 

Opportunities for research experiences at the clinical and basic science levels are available within the department, the school, and through other programs at the University. 

A major research focus of our department is development, maintenance and regeneration of hard and soft tissues lost as a consequence of disease, with strong emphasis on risk factors associated with periodontal disease and the older patient. 

A minimum of 45 semester credit hours, as well as a written thesis and oral defense, are required for an MS degree.
