Advanced treatment planning cases are also presented in a format that encourages interdisciplinary discussion of complex cases. CDM 8002—Advanced Dental Education Seminar Series III Postgraduate residents in their third postgraduate year attend this seminar series, which provides the opportunity for interdisciplinary learning at an advanced level. Presentations are given on topics related to advanced general dentistry, endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, operative dentistry, orthodontics and craniofacial orthopedics, pediatric dentistry, periodontology, and prosthodontics followed by collegial discussion. Advanced treatment planning cases are also presented in a format that encourages interdisciplinary discussion of complex cases. Additionally, postdoctoral students are required to take didactic and clinical courses within their respective area of specialization throughout their training. Postdoctoral Specialties POSTDOCTORAL ADVANCED EDUCATION IN GENERAL DENTISTRY The Department of Restorative Sciences and Public Health Dentistry offers an accredited, one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD 1) residency programwith an optional second year (AEGD 2). The didactic portion of the program includes a core science curriculum designed to provide all postdoctoral residents with an advanced, interdisciplinary education and a detailed, general practice curriculum. The AEGD 2 program includes a didactic and clinical curriculum beyond the scope of practice of the AEGD 1 program. The program emphasizes the concept of comprehensive care for all patients, which includes preventative dentistry, restorative and digital dentistry, fixed prosthetics, removable prosthetics, implantology, endodontics, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, and periodontology. All residents serve the special needs population—including individuals with developmental disabilities, such as autism or cerebral palsy; acquired disabilities, such as traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries and stroke; mental illness and behavioral management challenges; complex medical conditions or compromised medical status; significant physical or mobility limitations, and the frail elderly. Residents receive training on techniques to relieve anxiety and assist in behavior management for the purpose of enabling special needs patients to cooperate in their care. Off-site rotations are included during the second year of training to expand the range of experiences available.

Topics include research, medical management, restorative/preventative dentistry, dental biomaterials, digital dentistry, endodontics, pedodontics, prosthodontics, periodontics, oral surgery, TMD, oral medicine, treatment planning, orthodontics, implants, and public health. Lectures will be presented by full-time faculty members and guest lecturers. This course is designed to provide an understanding of advanced dental principles and techniques to assess and treat oral disease in human populations using current, evidence-based literature. It serves as the foundation for clinical treatment rendered. Residents are also responsible for participating in, and presenting at, monthly literature reviews and case presentations. Additionally, residents will be responsible for conducting an original research project. CDM 8050—AEGD Clinic I Residents participate in, and provide, comprehensive clinical dental treatment of patients with a variety of oral health care needs. They incorporate the knowledge gained from didactic lectures as they provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary oral health care for patients at a level of skill and complexity beyond that accomplished in predoctoral training. CDM 8051—AEGD Clinic II This course is a continuation of CDM 8050. Residents continue to participate in, and provide, comprehensive clinical dental treatment of patients with a variety of oral health care needs. They incorporate the knowledge gained fromdidactic lectures as they provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary oral health care for patients at a level of skill and complexity beyond that accomplished during their CDM 8050 course.
