Advanced Education in Esthetic Dentistry Fellowship Program

Students discuss the esthetics fellowship program

The Esthetic Dentistry Fellowship Program is designed to provide the enrolled fellows an advanced level of education in Esthetic Dentistry with didactic, clinical, laboratory and scholarly components. The fellows will have the opportunity to attend didactic sessions including lectures, seminars, and case presentations as well as performing patient care and conducting dental laboratory procedures.

During their clinical curriculum, the fellows will be trained to provide comprehensive dental care, utilizing the latest technologies available to dental professionals. Students’ training will include both simple and complex methods of smile reconstruction including teeth whitening, direct composite restorations, porcelain laminate veneers, all-ceramic and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns, computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) restorations, and implant-supported crowns. The program will expose students to all specialty phases of dentistry and medicine as they relate to esthetic dentistry.

During their didactic curriculum, fellows will attend prosthodontics-oriented classes such as Prosthodontics Treatment Planning Seminar, Biomaterials, Temporomandibular Joint
Disorders (TMJ) and Occlusion. Students will also attend Esthetics-oriented classes such as Advanced Operative and Esthetic Dentistry Course, Comprehensive Evidence-Based Esthetic Dentistry Literature Review, and multi-disciplinary oriented lectures including Advanced Esthetic Treatment Planning Seminars and Comprehensive Evidence-Based Perio-Implant Literature Review.

The program duration is one year, from July 1st of the starting year to June 30th of the following year.
