Hallway leading into the Department of Periodontology

Postdoctoral Program

Program Director: Dr. Lorenzo Mordini

The advanced education program in periodontics is designed to provide dentists with the knowledge and skills to meet the Commission on Dental Accreditation standards for certification in this specialty. Its curriculum is based on the biomedical and clinical sciences required to achieve the goals and objectives of the program. Moreover, the department believes that board certification is a critical step in professional growth and emphasizes a mindset towards achievement of this goal.

Predoctoral Program

Program Director: Dr. Livia Valverde

The predoctoral periodontal program is integrated into the school’s DMD curriculum. The objective of the program is to ensure that students are capable of diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. Students are also prepared to work closely with postdoctoral periodontology residents when the severity of the case suggests dual management.
