Departmental faculty also educate postgraduate residents, offering a 36-month combined master’s degree and certificate program in advanced prosthodontics.

The program provides residents with an integrated program of advanced didactic and clinical instruction in all phases of prosthodontics.

Emphasis is placed on the basic sciences as they relate to daily prosthodontic practice as well as the need for research and its appreciation. The opportunity for a combined PhD and certificate program also is available.
