Thank you for visiting our web site, and for your interest in prosthodontics! This is one of the fastest growing specialties in dentistry, and one of the most rewarding.
Our program is clinically oriented, with emphasis on dental implants. We are fortunate to have an extensive patient base and demand for prosthodontic services. Because of this, we are able to offer detailed clinical experiences in full-mouth rehabilitation, esthetic dentistry, implant reconstructions, surgical implant placement, and removable prosthetics. We also have a well-developed maxillofacial program.
While laboratory exercises are a necessary part of any prosthodontic program, we do not require all lab work be done by residents. We believe it is also important for residents to learn to work with qualified dental laboratories.
A unique aspect of our program is the surgical placement of dental implants. All of our residents place implants, and many with an interest in this area develop considerable surgical experience.
Again, thank you for your interest. We look forward to reviewing your application and meeting you at UAB.
